BJ Whitmer and Dan Maff vs. Carnage Crew

BJ Whitmer and Dan Maff vs. Carnage Crew - ROH Testing the Limit - 4

To get myself prepared for journeying to Cincinnati to see Ring of Honor live next weekend I thought I'd pop in one of the random 300+ (!) full-length shows of theirs I have in my collection.  Testing the Limit is known for its 74+ min. 2 out of 3 falls classic with Aries versus Danielson but what of its undercard?  CC starts off dominant making it a brawl but its not long until Maff is doing a big boy tope causing more damage than Hurricane Sandy.  Whitmer takes a great bump into the metal security barriers followed by a competent wincing sell.  Lots of chops being dished out around ringside.  This was supposed to be a regular rules match but they're just letting them fight -- I'm not even sure I ever heard a bell.  Loc counters a Burning Hammer by Maff into a Saito Suplex in a nice sequence.  BJ's got a nice backslide.  Who knew?  Loc gets dumped on his skull by a nasty Whitmer suplex which starts a marathon strand of random suplexes and throws by all involved including Devito depositing BJ into the turnbuckles nastily.  Maff gets crotched on the top rope thanks to Allison Danger which leads to a spike piledriver by the CC for the victory.  This was a lot of a fun for a sub-10 min. tag brawl -- no real noteworthy bumps worth recording into your ledger (i.e. that crusty notebook at your bedside where you've record thoughts on WWE TV since 2003).  Next match on the DVD is a four-way feat. 2 Cold Scorpio so I'm about to go watch that and get ready for tonight's season premiere of Community.
