This was for Bryan’s ROH World Championship.
This was fine. It was hard for anyone to suspend their disbelief enough to believe that Jimmy Yang had a legit chance of winning the match which took a lot of the juice out of the match. They should have compensated for that by working a much faster-paced, fan-friendly match.
Instead, Bryan stuck to the methodical match that he was trying to get over at the time. While you could make the rational (if wrong) argument that it was the right way to work the Roddy matches, going methodical here was unquestionably stupid. Bryan made Yang pass out to win. (**1/2)
