NXT Advent Calendar Day 19: Two huge stars at war

Before Kevin Owens ripped his way through NXT, Kevin Steen ripped his way through Ring of Honor. And while his run with that company was often contentious, he helped revive the brand quite a bit in the days after the loss of Tyler Black and Bryan Danielson.

He stuck with the company until mid-2014 which was a boon for fans of great wrestling. With ROH's deal with New Japan Pro Wrestling, crossover matches started to happen and none were bigger in this blogger's humble opinion than the battle between the rebellious star of ROH against the rebellious star of NJPW: Kevin Steen versus Shinsuke Nakamura.

And while the match didn't have any deep storyline behind it, it still gave us a fifteen minute classic between two men we may never see meet again.
