Now, we are just going to present the news to you and then let you form your own opinions without any hype central type stuff. Ok, some hype might slip in just because we get excited, but the Newswire will be 99% hype free now.

They are crazy into every match, from the Briscoe Brothers squash match in the opener, to the strong ROH title match with Nigel McGuinness (vs.) Claudio Castagnoli, and in particular, the masterpiece of the event with Danielson and Black.”
