After the match, Roderick Strong enters the ring. Edwards shoves Strong and Nigel McGuinness enters the ring to stand by Edwards! Nothing physical happens, though.
Match Rating: ***. It was a solid match, but again the finish felt anti-climatic to me. Elgin hit his finisher and literally ten seconds later loses. That has to hurt his finisher in my mind. I like Elgin as he has the physique of Rhino and a move set similar to Arn Anderson. I don't know if anyone else agrees with that statement, but that is what comes to mind. Anyway, a good bout despite a lackluster finish.
The previous episodes had one standout match and the other match being to a certain extent an extended squash match. This week was the first week where both matches were good. I didn't do the timing for the matches, but I would have to think they were both longer than 10+ minutes. Considering it is really only a 45 minutes program you are getting wrestling for half the show, probably more. How can you possibly hate that?
Overall, it was another fine episode by ROH. I'm just nitpicking on some things because nothing is perfect.
