(Pageot’s Perspective: Another enjoyable match that took up the vast majority of the present and informed a number of tales. C2C proceed their feud with Bruiser & Milonas and have been protected against taking a team loss. The large males appeared sturdy by profitable two matches earlier than falling to former champions. And the Bucks profitable made probably the most sense as they’re the one team credible sufficient at this level to believably beat The Briscoes. ROH has completed a very good job recently of showcasing completely different points of their roster. This week it was almost the complete tag division whereas final week highlighted a few of their high heels.)
