Don’t miss the Nigel McGuinness vs. Austin Aries main event that everyone is calling a match of the year candidate. Don’t take our word for it, check out what the critics and fans are saying:

“….topped by an excellent main event….a genuine match of the year candidate in the Nigel McGuinness vs. Austin Aries ROH title match….the most impressive workers were Bryan Danielson and Takeshi Morishima….these two came across in the ring as being the best workers in North America….(McGuinness vs. Aries is) One fantastic match. ****3/4” – Dave Meltzer in the March 17th edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

“As I’ve noted, the Nigel McGuiness vs. Austin Aries main event set the early standard for match of the year.” – Jason Powell at ProWrestling.Net

“Nigel vs. Aries is a brutal classic that really is worth the price of the PPV alone….Ring of Honor delivers the best wrestling matches to PPV. Easy thumbs up.” – J.D. Dunn at 411mania.com

“Excellent PPV – probably the best overall ROH show thus far. Not one bad match on the card. They did a great job of fitting a who’s-who of ROH talent on the show….The Nigel-Aries match was one of the best and most intense ROH matches I’ve seen – an easy match of the year contender.” – Justin Ballard at WrestlingObserver.com

“ROH was excellent….The scramble was perfect to go on early simply because it sells everyone unfamilar with the characters. You might not know who Jack Evans is, but you care after about 2 moves. And Aries and Nigel tore the house down….Well worth the $15.” – Zak at WrestlingObserver.com

“Overall, ROH’s Rising Above was an excellent show and will be in the running for best show of 2008. The announcing was really good here too. As each Pay Per View passes, Ring of Honor improves on each aspect of the show. Thumbs way, way up!” – Jeff Schwartz at WrestlingObserver.com

“ROH is 5 for 5 so far on PPV. Anyways, best match was the main event, I don’t think there was one bad match, show gets a big thumbs up from me,” – Albert Valenzuela at WrestlingObserver.com
