This was the night before Final Battle 2006 where Rave would face McGuinness and Homicide would challenge Danielson for the ROH World Championship.
This match was just about teasing those matches a bit. It was as watchable as it was insignificant. Bryan going after Homicide’s injured shoulder was the only real thing of substance to happen.
Samoa Joe accidentally distracted the ref trying to get him to call help or something for Homicide. That cost Nigel an opportunity to get the win and allowed Bryan to catch him with a small package for the victory. (**3/4)
