Beyond the scary moment at the end, a hell of a match. Great stuff.
ROH champion Roderick Strong vs. Eddie Edwards
Strong sent Truth Martini to the back, saying he's got this handled. They have some really good back and forth wrestling. Strong drilled him with a kick to the face. He went to the top but Edwards slipped out of the ring and nailed him.
Edwards tied Strong to the tree of woe and chopped away at him. Edwards went to the top and came in but Strong nailed him with a kick to the head. He dumped Edwards to the outside. Strong followed and they battled back and forth on the outside.
Once they returned, Strong snapped him over with a suplex for a two count. Strong locked on a Boston crab but couldn't force a submission. Strong went for a powerbomb outside but it was turned into a rana. Edwards hit a dive to the outside.
Back in the ring, Edwards drilled Strong in the corner. Edwards nailed several suplexes but Strong kept kicking up. Edwards went for a back suplex but Strong escaped and nailed a superkick. He picked up Edwards and snapped him over the turnbuckles for a two count.
They exchanged chops in the ring. It was a hellacious exchange. Think Flair vs. Garvin. Strong nailed him with a high knee. He rebounded off the ropes but was caught with a lariat by Edwards for a two count.
Strong rolled to the apron, where Edwards nailed him with a superkick. He brought Strong to the top rope. They battled back and forth on the top. Edwards knocked him off to the apron and came off with a double stomp to his chest. He then nailed a double stomp off the top across Strong's back.
Edwards locked in a single leg crab but Martini ran out to break it up. Strong nailed him with a backbreaker but Edwards kicked up and the crowd came alive. Strong spit in his face which only fired Eddie up. Strong naiiled a lariat for a two count then locked in a Boston Crab, Edwards made it to the ropes.
They went back and forth with a series of moves until Edwards rolled him up and scored the pin.
Your winner and new ROH champion, Eddie Edwards!
AWESOME main event.
