Jay Briscoe vs. Michael Elgin from Ring of Honor 2014

This was for Elgin’s ROH World Championship.

These two worked very hard here, and they managed to deliver a match that the crowd was mostly into overall. It was not a terribly interesting match though. Elgin ran through Jay for a while. Jay fought back and delivered some big bombs. Elgin hit the Buckle Bomb. Jay rebounded right away with a Jay Driller which got Jay the shock title win.

There were obviously a lot of shit going on behind the scenes that have been touched on plenty. The match itself though was kind kind of odd. It felt like a b-defense match that had a b-defense finish…only that finish was a clean title change. This match structure felt more appropriate for a challenger giving the champ everything he had only for the champ to survive by hitting his finish first. It was weird. (**3/4)
