AR Fox is a spot monkey. The Bucks certainly aren't. Their matches have spots but that doesn't mean they aren't worked well. Honestly as champions they are almost Flair like in how they structure their matches. They get the shit kicked out of them at first and you think they have no chance; then they someone get control of the match; then the other team makes the comeback; they hang with the challenger for a while and it's awesome; and then they either cheat to win which drives you crazy, win cleanly which drives you even more crazy, or lose and it's the greatest thing ever.
They don't go out there and just do spots for 20 minutes. They play heels, cheat, piss you off, and make you want to see the other team beat them.

Plus obviusly their work in ROH is going to be as spotty as it gets. So what exactly are those great means of getting heat they use?
Watch PWG. That's good advice for anyone that likes wrestling and you can also see how they get heat and play amazing characters while doing the coolest shit in the ring.
They are my favorite tag team in wrestling right now and it's not even close.
