Report by PWTorch correspondent Joseph Cooley

This was the first time I have been to a ROH show since the Jim Cornette era and I think the first time they have been here since then.  We took part in the meet & greet before the show taking photos with Roderick Strong and the Young Bucks. Strong was really good to us in the few minutes we spent with him, even coming out from behind the table for the picture because I am on a cane and it was a tight squeeze getting behind the the table. My niece fell in love with him in just a few mins.  The Bucks were great also, even putting their tag title belts on our shoulders for the photo.

The show itself was great. I have not seen good action like that in- person in a long time, if ever and that is after seeing many Raws over the years and going to monthly local shows at the armory.  Dalton Castle and his intro is something to see in person, as he knows his gimmick very well.  I am a huge fan of the Briscoes, so seeing the main event was great.  A side note, during that match there was a kid about five-years-old or so sitting behind us and while eight guys were just flying around, he asked his dad why there wasn’t a headlock in that match.

My only issue with the show was an attempt to pack as many people in the venue as possible. The seats were too close together with no room at all between people. They filled the place. I am not good with numbers, but I would not be shocked if it was a sell-out or close to it, but the space or lack of space between seats made some moments uncomfortable and took away from the enjoyment of the show. But, overall, I would go back again if they return.  I am interested in comparing this to the NXT show coming here in February because in my opinion NXT is ROH with more resources behind it.
