Samoa Joe vs. Rickey Reyes from Ring of Honor 2004

The magic of Samoa Joe matches had definitely gone away by this point. Instead of being a dominant, ass-kicking champion whose matches told the story of his reign, he had by this point become a pawn in storylines. That meant he had to a pre-match brawl with Homicide here and then get his ass kicked by RICKY FUCKING REYES for the almost the entirety of the actual match. Joe won of course, but this was such a layup of a match that got sacrificed for no valid reason. (*3/4)
