You know, Ring of Honor really has to be excited – two of their top alumni are world champions, with CM Punk winning RAW’s top prize on Monday, and Samoa Joe being the TNA Champion for a while now. Having never seen a full ROH show myself, I still knew about Samoa Joe and CM Punk before their debuts with their respective companies – which means that ROH is doing something right. For Punk, the title win surprised a lot of people – who knew the WWE would ever take a guy from the indies, let him keep his name and gimmick, and eventually make him a world champion? For Joe, we all knew it was going to happen, and it was a feel good moment when he finally captured the gold in TNA, despite the fact they made it blatantly obvious that he wasn’t walking away without the title that night. Of course, while RAW centered around it’s champion this past Monday night, iMPACT centered around Kurt Angle. Sure, Joe was in the main event, but he was only featured on the show once beforehand. How many Kurt Angle sightings were there? We’ll keep track during the review.
The matches, and my reviews of them, after the jump!
