1. James Tighe beat Paul London.

2. Jack Xavier beat Mikey Whipwreck.

3. Paul Birchill beat Raj Ghosh and "Double Dragon" Russ Jordan in a handicap match.

4. A J Styles beat "Wonderkid" Jonny Storm.

5. Ring Of Honor Champion Samoa Joe beat FWA All-England Champion Zebra Kid (originally scheduled to be non-title, but Samoa Joe did defend his ROH title in the match.) Stiff-fest.

6. FWA Tag Team Champions "The Family" ("Solid Gold" Scott Parker, "The Messiah" Brandon Thomas and "Righteous" Paul Travell) beat "Show-Stealer" Alex Shane", Ulf Herman and Nikita. Quite hardcore, including a balcony dive from Nikita.

7. Low-Ki and Flash Barker fought to a 20 minute draw. The crowd chanted for "5 more minutes" but heel referee Steve Lynskey prevented it from happening.

8. "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels beat "The Phoenix" Jody Fleisch following interference from Jonny Storm.

 

Samoa Joe proved why I am a huge fan of his...despite what Kenny says (Im now leaning towards the fact that Kenny is only a mark for his own product ;) ). The guy has charisma and talent. However by Joe defending the title, it screwed up the ranking system that ROH put in place.

 

No matter how hard he tried Chris Daniels struggled to get heel heat...although Chris is a really nice bloke if you ever get a chance to meet him.

 

Low-Ki dislocated his shoulder half way through the match he will be out of action for about 2 months. Flash will certainly work for ROH after that performance.

 

Mikey was Mikey...

 

Paul London vs James Tighe people are calling match of the night, it was good although not my cup of tea, wouldn't be suprised to see Tighe in ROH as well.

 

AJ vs Jonny....nice springboard 450 to end the match...Jonny is as bad as Jonny gets ;).

Stop your making me envious.

 

Glad you had a good time and it looks like from all accounts it was one hell of a show I will just have to wait to catch it on video :(

Yep, I went: couldn't find ANYONE though! I was in the "******* Arms" (can't remember the name) from 3.30 - 5.30pm (the pub you can see from the front of York Hall) but no one seemed obviousley going to the show. :(

 

Anyways, this is easily the best live wrestling event I've been to (outstripping Rebellion last year by a loooooong way). Had a top time even though I was sat on my own and had to leave during Daniel/Fleisch to catch the train back to Bristol. Even though I missed the train and was stranded in London on my own. And EVEN THOUGH I had to spend £48 on a hotel AND buy ANOTHER train ticket the next morning... It still ruled. :)

I was looking around for you AC, just couldn't spot you, lots of peeps fitting your description and i arrived late so didn't get to a pub :( . It was a fantastic show, easily one of the best live events ive seen, probably the best. Lots of contenders for match of the night, my fav was either Low Ki/Barker or London/Tighe, ( London is gorgeous ;) ).

I went too............great show, as I expected my favourite match was AJ/Jonny.

 

I was late too, or I would have been in the pub as well.......maybe next time then we can have a little TWO meeting I guess.

I was there till the end. It was great. Having never been to a live wrestling event with more than about 50 people in the hall I never realised just how loud a crowd can be. I started on the floor quite near the back but I didn't have the best view so a few people around me and myself went upstairs to the balcony just behind the cameras and spotlight.

 

London vs Tighe was a great opener with some good near falls and back and forth action. Really got the crowd going. The guy behind me was drunk and kept shouting for Tighe and a whole group of htem started up a "Zeus" chant.

 

Mickey Whipwreck ruled and the whole crowd marked out for him big time.

 

I didn't catch the name of the big guy I think it was Burchill or something. Anyway this guy was like Brock Lesnar big but he was so agile. He executed a standing shooting star and a somersault plancha over the corner post. He was impressive as hell.

 

AJ vs Storm ruled thanks to AJ IMO.

 

Samoa Joe was great.

 

the big six person was cool. Ulf was over huge

 

Lo Ki was great in person. I didn't realise he injured his shoulder in the match. Did he do the tidal wave whilst it was dislocated?

 

The main event was great Danials was over huge with the fans he gradually got them to boo his antics but people still cheered for him. Jody was great aswell.

 

I got some vids aswell. Misawa v Kobashi 2003 (which I will be reviewing soon) and ROH show 9. Did anyone else get any mercandise?

 

Overall it was a spectacular show to see in person and it will be interesting to see if that comes over on the video.

Yeah, picked up the two RoH DVDs - "Unscripted" & "Glory by Honor". I've only watched the first half "Unscripted" so far but it's excellent.

 

I also (from SST) bought a few tapes:

 

Best of Ultimo Dragon

Ultimo Dragon Comeback Tour

Torumon El Numero Uno 2003

IWA King of the Deathmatch '95 (a present for Gubbs)

WAR Super J Cup '95

Michinoku Pro can't remember the name...

And I'm sure there's another one but the title escapes me...

 

So I've got a lot of sitting down and staring to do in the coming weeks! I won't be reviewing my purchases as that involves a lot of stopping-and-starting the video and it damages the tape. :roll (sad b@$t@rd that I am :) )

Yeah I got a couple of videos......the Wrestle 1 ones from November 2002 and January 2003.......I've only watched the 2003 one at the moment, and with the exception of Abdullah the Butcher vs SATA.....yarn (?) it is a quality tape, every other match is good and the picture is alright as well-the sound is a bot dodgy, but this is SST we're talking about. If anyones interested at all I could post a review on the International Forum, that is if it hasn't been done already.

 

Also got a free video as I was a silver ringsider (not for the likes of you!) that features Daniels/Williams from Crunch 2002, Corino/Parker from I don't know when, and Fleisch/Styles from last year's Seasons Beatings (featuring a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance by me way up in the back in the crowd). Pretty alright for a freebie anyways.

I had silver ringside but I wasn't sure if that entitled me to the free video - so I didn't ask for fear of looking like a greedy bugger!

Poor Acid, it wasn't your day was it lol :D I was really miffed about merchandise because i didn't bother buying anything on the Saturday as i thought i was going to the fan fest so i would buy it there, but i never made it. I was after Uprising part 2, but will just have to order it now.

He sure is!! He's a total sweetie too....I got to have a little chat with him and he really something.

 

My favourite match was probably Tighe vs London. It just blew me away as an opener + I was a bit blown out for the next two matches.

 

The hardcore match was pretty awesome.....well done Nikita!!! What an inspiration?! The first woman ever to do a balcony dive + what a great one it was!!

 

All round it was a great show + a great weekend!!
