Recap from TJ Hawke:
The winners got a shot at the ROH World Tag Championships. Lenny Leonard and Dave Prazak did a great job of explaining all the major storylines and character motivations that were present at the time. Not much happened early on. Gen Next isolated Lethal, and they worked him over for a while. Lethal was eventually able to hit Aries with a spinebuster. Joe tagged in and ran through Aries. Joe and Lethal worked over Aries for a while. Aries tagged out to Roddy, and Roddy then ran through Joe and Lethal. This match has a weird face vs. face dynamic. Neither team is working in a particularly exciting fashion. Aries and Roddy hit Joe with a crucifix bomb/Sick Kick combo. Roddy killed Lethal with some backbreakers. Aries then hit Lethal with the frog splash: 1…2…3!
The frog splash was used because the show was a tribute to Eddie Guerrero, who had recently passed away. I found this match to be rather dull quite frankly. They tried doing some subtle stuff, but the match never really clicked with me. The better team won at least, and this win set up their title victory at Final Battle 2005.
Match Rating: **3/4
