Lethal doesn't suck and Bennett isn't doing anything meaningful.
See, if ROH's fanbase would admit that all that matters now is marketability, and that some sacrifices in the product are going to come as they try to appeal to a wider audience, then it wouldn't be so bad. But some people seem to think that Haas and Benjamin holding the belts is entirely compatible with ROH being all about the wrestling, and not some TNA shit where ex-WWE guys get pushed over better wrestlers just because they're ex-WWE guys. I get why they're doing it, more than anything I'm just upset that this is the direction ROH has apparently decided to go.
Also, to the "there's no other option" excuse, how's this: ANX win the belts in February in Chicago. First defense is against the Briscoes in NYC, ANX retain, they do the double turn. Briscoes win the belts in the bloodbath in Atlanta, they keep feuding, ending in Ladder War III with the belts on the line. Meanwhile WGTT keep running the "dream matches", maybe not going over fucking everybody, until people realize they suck and stop paying to see them. Is that unreasonable?
This is the other wrestling section. It's still fake to us.
