Final Thoughts: I thought this was pretty good show all-around. For me, the card went above and beyond my expectations just by looking at it on paper. Lynn/Corino was a good match, but I think it’s overrated considering the other reviews I’ve seen gave it ***3/4. I didn’t like how Steen/Corino, Generico/Cabana were involved in the 3 matches although I really enjoyed the tag match w/ the Wolves. I understand it was done to advance the storyline/feud, but it was overkill for me. I loved how ROH built up the ROH World Title match at Big Bang with the main-event matches (segments.) I have a problem with the fact that nothing on this show will really be memorable. No **** match hurt the show but it did have a ton of good matches. Out of the 2 Phoenix shows, I think From The Ashes was better but this show is still worth picking up.
