No matter what name they use (Olympians or Greek Gods), I always enjoy seeing Actagon & Proteus in action... Regardless of how many teams have come after, they remain the ORIGINAL dynamic duo of COTG... Also cool that Tanahashi was able to put Luger down for a three count... A little surprised that EC3 defeated Tyler Black (his second ROH edition is quite exceptional)... And although some might view it as an upset, I think Gargano has the skills to beat pretty much anyone... Another fun show!
Yeah, when I book these shows I use all the cards I have so I use both ROH Steen and Kill Steen Kill as well. I mark them by either fed or if they have more than one card in a fed with the number of that card so people know which I'm using for said matches. Thanks as always, Bri, for the support. Funny thing in that Gargano/Steen match, it was at (0) Steen had a couple fatigue and rolled low.
