ROH Final Battle 2008 (12/27/08) Inhebriated Recap



Blogger T and I attended last night’s ROH Final Battle 2008 and I tried as hard as I could to keep tabs on the show while being unbelievably drunk. From what I remember, it was a great show with the match of the night definitely being Marafuji vs. Nigel. Marafuji is one of the most entertaining wrestlers I have ever seen. His offense is so innovative and crisp. Tyler Black is also on the fast track to superstardom. I can totally see this guy making a huge impact really soon in TNA or WWE. Here is my unfiltered drunken report:

1. Kenny Omega defeated Claudio in the opener.

2. Jerry Lynn defeated Rhett Titus and Chris Hero and Necro Butcher in a four-way. Good back and forth match. At one point, Titus was trying to powerbomb Necro Butcher off the apron, but Necro reversed it into a huracanrana. In the ring, Sara del Ray threw the loaded elbow pad to Hero who put it on his foot and tried to kick Lynn. Lynn ducked then hit the Cradle Piledriver for the win.

After the match, as Necro was leaving, Jimmy Jacobs entered the ring through the crowd and called Necro a Hollywood sellout. Necro returned to the ring but was attacked from behind by Delirious. That lead to “Steenerico” coming out to start the next match

3. Kevin Steen and El Generico beat Jimmy Jacobs and Delirious to retain the ROH Tag Titles. Really good back and forth match. The end saw Daizee Haze trying to get involved, but Jacobs grabbed her and tried to attack her. Steen then superkicked Jacobs. He followed that up with his version of the cradle piledriver for Delirious followed by a brainbuster by Generico for the win. After the match, Jacobs was yelling at Delirious.

Possibly the Reason Why Gabe Was Fired?

Just a hunch. Its not I don’t find Rhett “Addicted to Love” Titus entertaining. This guy is brilliant! He oozes sex appeal. He’s a manly man. Plus, he’s totally not gay.

Nigel McGuinness is not a robot

ROH is so fucking awesome that their weekly 10 minute Youtube clips are more entertaining than 5 hours of WWE “sports-entertainment.” Their latest video wire is especially amazing, as recently turned heel, and ROH champion, Nigel McGuinness has a sit-down interview with ROH commentator, Dave Prazak (who he keeps calling Prozak). During the interview, Nigel goes off on all the marks in ROH who give him shit, and basically pwns the fuck out of them. We here at DoubleAxHandle give Nigel our seal of approval.

The only thing I disagree with, is during his speech he talks about how he bets people doubted American Dragon when he first won the title and thought he was boring, but won them over. Well, Dragon didn’t win me over. He’s still boring as hell to me!

And, if you’re reading this Nigel, whenever you want to have some tea and crumpets, you are more than welcome at the DoubleAxHandle headquaters

Buff Blogwell adds:  Check out 7:55, he called American Dragon an al-BEEN-o!!  That’s got to be the word of the week at dXh.

The HUMAN TORNADO will bitch-slap all jive turkeys

Last weekend, Blogger T and I had the chance to attend ROH’s Sixth Anniversary show at the Manhattan Center. I have a large built-up rant that I will post soon, but first I thought I must let all the wrestling blogeratti out there know, that the man who impressed us the most was HUMAN TORNADO.

Sure, this soul brotha was on the short-lived-but-rather-awesome MTV series, Wrestling Society X, but I don’t really feel I got the full grasp of his awesomeness until seeing him live and in technicolor, daddy! Its very rare we dish out compliments here at DoubleAxHandle, but this dude is absolutely money. I’m sure in no time, WWE will snatch him up and neuter him just like they did with countless others (RVD, Paul London, etc).

Both clips furnished by the Human Tornado’s Myspace page. If he’s on an indy car in your town, check this foo’ out, he may be worth the price of admission.
