Special Challenge Match
Jimmy Rave with Prince Nana vs. the debuting Davey Richards
This was the first match I believe of the night. The show was supposed to start at 7:30 and I got there was 15 minutes before that. Anyway, Rave came out and right away gennerated a ton of heat. People started throwing rolls of toilet paper at him, which he picked up and threw back into the crowd. My friend wasn't looking and almost caught one right in the face lol. The match started off slow as nobody knew who Richards was so the crowd was pretty quiet but then they started getting all over Rave again when Richards started to dominate. Chants like "Fuck you Jimmy" and "Die Jimmy Die". There was also a man who kept getting up and yelling while wearing a Green Lantern shirt, so throughout the whole show we all chanted "Fuck Green Lantern". I was surprised at the outcome of this. Rave got dominated most of the match, then had a flurry where you thought he'd pull it out, but Richards wasn't having it. Richards won to my surprise.
1) Davey Richards beat Jimmy Rave. Pretty long match at over 15 minutes. Richards got the win with a double underhook brainbuster, and the crowd seemed into him.
I'm happy for Davey. I'm kinda surprised he debuted and actually went over against someone like Jimmy Rave. I'm sure Davey's in for big things in ROH. Good for him.
