FEEDBACK: ROH Final Battle 2022

What did you think of Final Battle?

POST Show live now in the Café.

Final Battle lives up to its name, for the most part.

Title changes abound and FTR/Briscoes made it tough for the rest of the show to follow. Each match of their trilogy felt unique in tone and flavour and the dog collar setting amplified everything…it should’ve went on last.

Thankfully, the evil was defeated when Claudio beat Jericho for the ROH world title and I loved the smart finish of Jericho submitting to the swing. I bet he wanted to spare the embarrassment of puking.

Now…can ROH find a network?

I enjoyed this show, feeling the second half was stronger than the first. FTR and the Briscoes had their third Match of the Year Contender together within the year. A violent work of art, up there with Punk and MJF earlier this year. I also really enjoyed Garcia vs. Yuta, and Jericho vs. Claudio, both with unique finishes. Never saw someone tap to the big swing before. My only negative was the awkward finish to the PPV opener, and what I felt was some uncomfortable and unprofessional post-match business from Rush.
