ROH Wrestling Results (10/15/2011) - Edwards Battles Elgin!
After the match, the referee asks the Briscoe Brothers if they hit King in the groin. They deny it and Rhett Titus tries to attack them but that didn't work out so well for him.
Your Winners: The Briscoe Brothers
Match Rating: ***1/4. I thought it was a good match, but I disliked the finish. They do all these high impact moves and a kick to the groin finishes you off? I'll never understand why they book finishes that way sometimes.
