Davey Richards vs. Kyle O'Reilly from ROH TV 2011: Match Spotlight Series #72

ROH put this match up for free recently.  I don't know why.

Thoughts on the match:

No recap (ok, there were lots of kicks and submission attempts).  This was a good, but not great, match.  The story was that Davey was better, but Kyle's close association with him allowed him to keep up with the World Champ and actually get some believable nearfalls at the end.  Eventually, Davey had an ankle lock with a grapevine, but Kyle refused to tap.  Tony Kozina then threw in the towel to save O'Reilly from further punishment.  I think Kyle should be getting a Proving Ground match soon, and I would like to see him win it.
Match Rating: ***1/2
