(reviewed 05/24/2019) Less than a year after they had a shoot pull-apart brawl in PWG these guys are going at it again, because God is real and throws us a bone sometimes. This is great in that it’s these two but not great in that it’s a short little TV match with a DQ finish that has to spend lots of time introducing Kingston and this feud to ROH. So you’ll get stuff like this…
…but not much else. Partly it’s due to what Hero is by this point in ROH, a coward heel basing most of his work around a loaded elbow pad, and from what I recall that’s going to continue to hamper this feud. But at least the matches are bigger and better from here on out.
