This was a fantastic pay-per-view. The pre-show matches were filler fare. R.O.H. mainstays Strong and Aries had a nice bout. I was surprised to enjoy the Hoyt/Apollo versus James/Brown tag match as much as I did. Williams and Sabin had a very solid match, and then Abyss and Sabu (although relying on garbage spots) pulled us in even more so. Roode and Hardy had arguably the most disappointing match of the evening, it had absolutely no story nor build. The four-team (Sean Waltman was supposed to be Shelly’s partner but didn’t show) match was worked well, although it felt a bit long at certain points. Rhino and Raven’s World title match was a little lackluster, there was some brutal spots, but it wasn’t memorable. The main event, featuring three of the best talents in the USA, did not disappoint. There was everything you could want from a match; intensity, high flying, submissions, reversals, and a solid finish. These guys really earned a standing ovation by pulling out all the stops and putting on a hell of a show.

i'd have to agree with your assessment...this was a hell of a show, with Sabu v. Abyss being fun barbarism...and the 3 way showing what main eventing a ppv didge's mom made those kick ass chicken salad sandwiches
