Bryan Danielson vs. Roderick Strong from Ring of Honor 2006


This was for Bryan’s ROH World Championship.

Bryan and Roddy having unnecessarily long matches was basically their gimmick together. This one was tragically no different.

They went just short of an hour. It was about Bryan trying to just outlast Roddy. Roddy made a last-second comeback, but Bryan held on for the victory.

While it was impressive that the fans were deeply invested at the very end of the match, that does not compensate for the dull af journey the match took to get there.

So many Bryan defenses were just a test of endurance in the worst way possible. It was an ambitious idea, but it was completely misguided. (1/2*)
