Keith and Shane were both offered contracts. Shane signed while Keith chose EVOLVE for a singles push.

I will agree with you though about Keith Lee. It appears his trifecta of matches thus far are getting high praise. ROH should have bent over backwards to keep the guy.

Yesterday I finished ROH's 2002. It was very cool to see the very first ROH shows at the Murphy Rec. Center and all the talent involved that would become top stars in the future. Most of the shows were a mixed bag, with some bad and average matches. But man, the highs were very high. I mean, you have random matches and stupid stuff, but then you have all the classic matches, with GREAT wrestling. I loved that concept of ROH being about sport and not entertaiment and the original Code of Honor. It made the product feel different, and not like today's, with all the interferences, ref. bumps and shitty entertaiment.

Top 10 matches:

1.- Dragon vs Low Ki - RRC *****
2.- Danielson vs Ki vs Daniels ****1/2
3.- Styles vs Danielson - ASE ****1/4
4.- Ki vs Styles - Night of Appreciation ****1/4
5.- Daniels vs AJ Styles - Road to the Title ****1/4 (I find with match way to underated. Awesome stuff by these two)
6.- [Fight Without Honor] Joe vs Ki ****
7.- London vs Danielson - Night of the Butcher ****
8.- [Street Fight] Michael Shane vs London ****
9.- Ki vs Red - Road to the Title ****
10.- [Iron Man] Ki vs Daniels vs Spanky vs Williams - Crowning a Champion ***3/4 (I expected a lot more from this match. It was a good match, but Spanky really felt out of place and he didn't do anything relevant. It also had some parts were they weren't doing anything, like in the 4 Way at Final Battle between Corino, Joe, Ki and Danielson).

This is a match that gets nowhere near enough love and attention.

Surprised you didn't have the all star 4-way from Final Battle 2002 on your top 10, I've got it on mine, loved that match a lot more than I thought I would. Thought it was better than the Crowning A Champion 4-way Iron Man.

Yeah. I was hyped for that match. I love Corino and Joe, Ki and Danielson are awesome. I read mixed reviews and, in the end, I felt the match too long. It wasn't organic and they killed way too much time just for reaching the time límit. It was just a good match, btw.

If you want to see rating for all the matches I saw from 2002 you can check it in this link:

Yesterday I was watching some random matches with a friend and I fell in love with the Danielson-Aries 2/3 Falls match. Awesome stuff and way better than the infamous ******1/4 time limit draw between Okada and Omega at Dominion. 74 minutes of pure wrestling. I'm proud of having a DVD with this match --> ****3/4

This might seem weird, but it always felt to me like this match would have seemed a lot more impressive if it wasn't 2/3 falls.

As someone who didn't read the forums as much back then, was there any talk of Danielson coming back to ROH after his release from WWE during the Nexus angle? I find it strange he didn't have even one match back.

Everyone was expecting it, but it never happened. If I recall correctly, Danielson at one point said that he and Pearce both agreed that it wouldn't be so good if he was in for, like, one or two shows, without any storylines. I totally disagree with that sentiment because he's Bryan freakin' Danielson, but (assuming I am remembering correctly) that's what they both thought. I assume if he hadn't been resigned by WWE (he was close to signing a contract with New Japan when WWE called him again) he would have wound up working ROH as regularly as possible as well.
