CM Punk & Spanky vs. Samoa Joe & Jay Lethal from Ring of Honor 2005


This was a really fun match with a downright bizarre finish sans context. Stevie Richards showed up for some reason and superkicked Punk. That left prone for the release dragon suplex from Lethal to give the Lethal/Joe team the win. Someone tweet me an explanation of that one.

The match itself was just some classic competitive tag wrestling from ROH. Everyone was working like they were trying to win at all times. There was great intensity, urgency, and physicality. When you watch random main events like this one that did not mean a great deal in the grand scheme of things, you can really see how far ROH fell after Gabe left. (***1/2)
