Samoa Joe vs. CM Punk from Ring of Honor 2004

This was for Joe’s ROH World Championship.

What exactly can be said about Punk/Joe I after all this time? Yes, it does go sixty minutes, and that definitely gives the match a lower ceiling. However, this match really isn’t about being great in it of itself. This match was about much more than maximizing its own individual quality. This was about building the legends of Joe and Punk, and the match succeeded in doing so quite well. These two came across like total stars here and both left the match infinitely more over as a result of taking part in it. Sixty minute draw or not, this match has a ton of value and is actually a blast to watch. (****)
