I don't have any WGTT matches in ROH above ***1/2. The SoCal Showdown II match is probably the best of the KOW series and some people like the Wolves match (I didn't at all).
That match was the worst, for my money. It just felt like a bridge between the other two. A formality.
I disagree with a lot of the negativity, that's starting to develop, about WGTT's ROH run. They've been a real asset to ROH and the buyrates and DVD sales confirm that.
I'm always sceptical, whenever ex-WWE guys come into ROH but WGTT have exceeded my expectations. Shelton's performance in the Wolves match, for example, was one of the most focused and motivated I've ever seen from him. He brought the intensity that a lot of his WWE performances lacked.
WGTT need to be the first faces that are seen on the TV show IMO.
Benjamin and Haas haven't had a great match yet though. Kings matches were good, Brisoces match was decent. I liked the Wolves match quite a lot at first but thinking back there's nothing memorable about it now and I doubt it holds up very well. There's no doubting their value to the company in terms of being draws and even more so now with TV but they've been in huge tag matches and haven't delivered like a KOW, Steenerico, Briscoes or Wolves have in similar positions.
Haven't been interested enough to watch Socal II, but the initial WGTT-Kings match was right at **** for me, mostly because the live audience loved it so much. The title-switch was a bit less exciting, but still a solid ***1/2 and well worthy a watch.
PWG takes way too damn long to release DVDs. They should be like Chikara and have it done and ready to ship within a few days. I pre-ordered ASW 8 but god knows when it'll come out.
I'd say give them a month since they said they would get them out fast before starting to get angry. The thing with King of Trios is that all the equipment needed to do the dvds is in the Philly Arena and SMV some crazy people working overnight for them. Getting PWG and ROH dvds in a month would be pretty nice though.
