Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread
ROH treat the WORLD tag-team titles with the same respect as their WORLD title. If they had a WORLD cruiserweight title (and enough guys in both weight classes to justify that decision) they'd probably treat that the same as well. It's the smart thing to do, no matter how hard they try there will always be times when the world title match isn't all that interesting and the tag-team title match is of far more importance. That happened ay the 9th Anniverssary Show when nobody gave a flying fuck about Strong vs Homocide. Admittedly the closing match wasn't the tag-team title match, rather it was WGTT vs The Briscoes but that still shows that the division is strong enough to allow that to happen.
Fair enough, but why not bump the other useless tag match which was boring as hell and have your world champion in action? If they wanted to gain new fans by going on TV then they have failed. Why not instigate some proper feuds or storylines, or something to make the viewers return next week? As I said, it felt more like a 1 hour infomercial of sorts, advertising what an ROH live show is like. If that's what they want to do, then fine, but they're not going to draw any viewers bar the ROH faithful, which is hardy anyone
