This was for Joe’s ROH World Championship.
The last defense saw Joe coming closer than ever before to actually dropping the belt. Thus, it was cool to see Joe get back on track here with a more dominant performance.
He took the majority of the match here and reestablished himself as a force to be reckoned with in ROH. While Daniels got more over for nearly putting Joe away, Jay got more over here for just surviving this contest.
He barely got close to winning at any point, bit Joe had to throw EVERYTHING at him in order to finally keep him down. Great match. (****)
