This was for Joe’s ROH World Championship.
This was GREAT! They played very well off of the other Joe defenses to make clear that this was on a higher level. After Joe dominated the early moments of the match, Daniels fought back and got closer than anyone else had done so far. His Angels Wings nearfall was so close that it accidentally caused the bell to the ring. Joe then managed to apply the choke even things back up. After that, Daniels was left prone for an enzuigiri/Island Driver combo to save the title. (****)
