I was in the arena live for this match and was surprised at few things about this match. The first thing was how well they built it up and really got Dalton over as one of the companies top stars in such a sort period of time. This feud really proved that with the right booking someone can get over and in a big way just like Dalton did. The other thing that surprised me is just how good Cody has gotten since his departure from WWE; I mean the amount of depth, and ability that he has shown is insane and shows just what WWE had missed out on by not giving him a chance.
Overall I think that this match was surprisingly better then I thought it be and in my opinion it might be one of the more underrated moments from Final Battle last year. This match also put on display exactly why Ring of Honor will always stay ahead of other companies, because they will always try to make new stars like a certain NXT champion.
