Kevin Steen vs. Homicide from ROH 2012
Post by TJ Hawke:
This was for Steen’s ROH World Championship. Steen was accompanied by Jimmy Jacobs while Steve Corino was on commentary supporting him.
Considering that they were swimming upstream by having Steen work heel (as was the case throughout much of Steen’s title reign), these guys did not do too bad of a job. They worked a brisk pace, and I was never bored during the match. They probably could have had a truly wild match together, but their respective peaks in ROH were just too far apart for that to have ever happened. The only real bad part of the match was the finish: Steen needed a distraction from Jacobs and a low blow to put Homicide away. Besides Steen working heel despite being the biggest babyface in the company, he really should not have needed to cheat to beat Homicide in 2012. (**3/4)
