Storm/Bennett III lacked a big-time, pay-per-view feel and was probably the weakest of their three encounters. However, it was still one of the better televised matches of 2012.
Lance Storm is a master technician and Mike Bennett is getting better all the time. There are few pairs in Ring of Honor who seem to mesh as well as these two.
Best yet, the match was relatively clean.
Certainly, the finish was a bit murky with Bennett hitting Storm with a TKO onto a chair. However, no one has kicked out of Bennett’s TKO and there is no reason to believe Storm, after a long, grueling match, would be the first.
How awesome is a heel who cheats to win, not because he has to, but simply because he can?
I’ll answer that one for you.
In all, this program has been great for Mike Bennett. He got two wins against a wrestling legend and improved his craft in the process. If Storm wants to hang around, he is welcome to do so until someone can name a bad Lance Storm match.
If one has happened, I haven’t seen it.
