ROH Final Battle 2005
December 26, 2004
Philadelphia, Pa.
Report by J. Music, PWTorch.com reader


(1) Jimmy Jacobs defeated Trent Acid. This match was really good. It was exciting ring action, and Acid quit ROH at the end. He walked past me, so I patted him on the back told him "good job!"

(2) Lacey and Deranged defeated Angel Dust and Becky Bayless. This match was pretty good. Nothing too special.

(3) John Walters defeated Jimmy Jacobs. The match was pretty good, a little short, but I loved the twist at the end: Walters "sold out on the fans" and joined the Embassy. Half the crowd was yelling at Walters to join them anyway. I used to hate John Walters, but we'll see what will happen with him.

(4) Rockin Rebel defeated Unknown Jobber. This match sucked, the jobber got a little offense in and stuck a water bottle in Rebel's asscrack, then pantsed him (why?).

(5) B.J. Whitmer & Danny Maff defeated The Carnage Crew of Loc & Devito. Fight without honor was great, however I attended CZW's Cage of Death 6 which just all out topped this match in terms of violence. Mick Foley came to the ring and pulled out a Christmas stocking, saying it was a special Christmas socko: then he poured thumbtacks onto the ring. Foley's role gave this match something special.

Speaking of Foley, his interaction with Steamboat was GREAT. Both of them admit that pure wrestling is the foundation of ROH, but hardcore is a fun attraction that is necessary sometimes. Foley also says he was out of line when he disrespected Flair backstage at Raw. (Foley calls the skit he was in on Raw "the most distasteful, racially charged skit I've ever taken part in."). He also says Joe was out of line in disrespecting Joe. Joe comes out and shakes Foley's hand and then goes for a hug, but decks him. Mick grabs a kendo stick and Steamboat pulls them apart. Joe challenges Mick to a match. Intriguing.

(6) Homicide defeated Josh Daniels. Okay. I don't really like Daniels, and even Julius Smokes and Homicide didn't make this match that good.

(7) Jay Lethal defeated The Weapon of MASK Destruction #2. Okay. I wasn't into this match as much as I normally am into Lethal's matches. Technically a good match.

(8) C.M. Punk & Steve Corino defeated Generation Next's Alex Shelley & Roderick Strong.
This match was fun. Great ring work towards the middle and end with a LOT of comedy in the beginning. Aries turned on Shelley after the match and became the new leader of Generation Next.

(9) Lo Ki wrestled Bryan Danielson to a no contest. A lot of people thought this match was boring. I Loved it. Very slow paced but realistic wrestling, with fast flurries far between but exciting when they happened. Eventually they pulled out all the stops and brawled in the crowd. I ran over to where they were fighting. The ref threw the match out, and Homicide (he and the Rottweilers, along with all the faces in the locker room, had come out) was PISSED and threw a mop, which hit me.

(10) Austin Aries defeated Samoa Joe to become ROH World Champ. Best match I've ever seen live. I and everyone else was so into Aries winning that it was incredible. Throughout the match Aries attempted a brainbuster on Joe to no avail. Joe dominates a large portion of the match, and hits an Island Driver, which Aries kicks out of. Aries hits the 450 splash, which Joe kicks out of. Joe goes for the muscle buster, but Aries reverses, finally hits the brainbuster and hits the 450 for the 1, 2, 3. Crowd goes completely BANANA, myself included. I jumped up and down screaming about 5 times. An incredible match, the most excited I've ever been about a pro wrestling match.

QUICK TIPS FOR SENDING RESULTS

If you attend an arena event in future, either house shows or TV tapings, we encourage you to send us a report for publication. You can direct your reports to "matchresults" (@pwtorch.com).

We accept reports in any format, but if it's not much trouble, please format your report like you see above, with the matches numbered like this (1), (2), (3), with the opening line of each match paragraph stating who over whom (don't just say Wrestler A vs. Wrestler beat with the result listed later; instead, state up front who won so those readers who don't have time to read the entire report (i. e. their boss walks past their cubicle all the time looking over their shoulder) can at least quickly assess the results.

Also, please list tag teams using the "&" symbol as opposed to stating "and. " Reserve use of "and" when listing results in a three-way or four-way match where there are no teams (i. e. "Wrestler A over Wrestler B and Wrestler C in a three-way match") so it is easy to differentiate a handicap match from a three-way match.

If you know HTML coding for bolding, you can also bold out the first line of each match description. If you don't know HTML symbols, then we can add those ourselves.

Special thanks to everyone who helps us with reports on live events!
