TJ Hawke’s Recap
These guys had an ‘ok’ match at War is Coming, but Able and Raymond looked to be suffering from ring rust there. Jerome Cusson says this match was better, so I am looking forward to it.
Raymond and Able were in control for most of the beginning of the match. Val Malone interfered, and that allowed the Airborne to cut off, and then work over, Raymond. Raymond eventually escaped a pinning attempt and tagged in Able who ran wild. Able nearly murdered a Crist (missed which one) on a F-5. Raymond wiped out David with a plancha, while Able had Jake pinned: 1…2…Val put Jake’s leg on the ropes. The Airborne did a Double Stomp combo thing but Able kicked out. Able and Raymond were back in control, but Malone distracted the referee, which allowed the Airborne to hit a Double Stomp-Tombstone combo on Raymond: 1…2…3!
I think this was a better showing from Able and Raymond, but they definitely have cut down on the more dangerous stuff (I miss Raymond’s Shooting Star Cross-Body!), but over time that should allow for them to become more complete performers. Good match overall. I hope Irish Airborne get another look from ROH soon. They’ve improved a lot.
