Honor Takes Center Stage – Chapter 2
Atlanta, Georgia
April 2, 2011

Originally reviewed here.

The Kings were pissed off and working with purpose right away. They cut off Kyle early on and worked him over. Kyle eventually escaped, and Cole made a great hot tag. Adam Cole as a babyface tag guy > Adam Cole heel singles. Just as FS had all the momentum, Hero caught each of them with a rolling elbow. Cole wiped out Hero with a tope suicida while Kyle had Claudio in the guillotine! CLAUDIO REVERSED IT INTO SWISS DEATH! Kyle then ate a big double strike from the Kings: 1…2…3

This match did everything right that the Kings/Wolves match did wrong four months earlier. They packed in a ton of exciting action and worked the right amount of time. I only wished this kicked off an era in ROH where they realized you didn’t need to go over twenty minutes to have a great match.

Match Rating: ***3/4
