Silas Young vs. Mark Briscoe

Silas Young vs. Mark Briscoe - ROH TV 11/2/2013 - 3

As fate would have it the night this aired ROH was in my neck of the woods in Cincinnati but I found myself instead at fellow NHO staffer Adam's apartment watching old Full Impact Pro and FMW discs.

Mark Briscoe: bearded and baroque. Minutes in and Mark takes a backdrop on the floor then moments later does a moonsault to the ground. Silas' mustachioed look is an improvement. Mark takes a backdrop, this time in the ring, but wanting to improve upon his earlier bump, in the process flips over the turnbuckle entirely and crashes out on the ground. Young aping Dudley Boyz spots in 2013. Mark's ragged beard makes him look as though he'd been surviving in the wilderness the past several months. Ready for more floor fun? I knew you were. Silas tries to snap his own spine by taking a bump off the apron from a dropkick flipping off right onto his head. Mark does the Foley running elbow off the apron complete with "Bang! Bang!" finger pistols. I'd like to see Mark Briscoe in the zombie apocalypse. I don't think "Redneck Kung-Fu" could stop a horde. Young gets a shitty 'lil roll-up for the vict. Post-match he belts Mark welting him up like Papa Briscoe used to when he caught Mark with his pants down in the chicken coop.
