Roderick Strong w/ The Decade vs. Cedric Alexander

This was an excellent way to start off the night. The story here was that Strong is the veteran who is clamoring for the company’s youth to show he and his cohorts the proper respect. This didn’t really figure into the action itself, but did serve as a strong back-story, nonetheless. Speaking of the action, it was the usual sort of great work that these two have been delivering lately. In the end, Strong found a victory was in his future.

Winner: Roderick Strong

Adrenaline Rush & Andrew Everett vs. The Decade (Adam Page, BJ Whitmer, Jimmy Jacobs) – Six-Man Tag Team Match

This was a wild fracas that was bursting with jaw-dropping action. This is one of those matches that tried to go faster than 55 and certainly succeeded. That being said, this bout did avoid becoming a spot-fest, which is something that can’t always be claimed by these sorts of affairs. All in all, this was wonderful work from some wonderfully talented wrestlers.

Winners: The Decade

MAIN EVENT: Kevin Steen vs. Michael Elgin – # 1 Contender’s Match for an IWGP Heavyweight Championship Match

Elgin went over in a great main event. They chose to set their work around power-slams, which was quite the sight, considering their respective sizes. This bout had the aura of a main event and was wrestled like one. I truly enjoyed this and I absolutely agree with the choice in victor.

Winner: Michael Elgin

Final Thoughts: This was a fine night of action from Ring of Honor. The Decade is growing more intriguing with every card and seems poised to be the best faction of the year. It will be interesting to see Elgin wrestle Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. That bout could be a big breakthrough for both men.
