Also that last point is stupid. Would Ultimate Warrior wrestling in ROH have to be enjoyable because it's a big name from the WWF alumni in a small promotion like ROH? It's not even like Benjamin and Haas had huge success in WWE aside from their initial run for like a year and Benjamin in 2004. They really aren't all that significant historically, or at least not as much as you make them out to be in your argument. If there wrestling sucks (which it has) then there's no enjoyment to be taken no matter where they came from.
- Ultimate Warrior's style doesn't fit ROH, in the way that WGTT's does. If Ultimate Warrior turned up in, say, Chikara, then people would take enjoyment. Of course, as always, certain fans would wallow in their formulaic asterisk ratings and completely miss the point.
- WGTT were part of a group of wrestlers (Lesnar, Angle etc.) that pioneered a unique style, primarily on Smackdown, in an era that's fondly remembered as one of the high-points of the past decade. If not for those wrestlers, the trend that led to the success of ROH and similar companies might never have started.
- I can't name a more significant tag team in the past decade. The Briscoes are hugely important, in a completely different way, but no-one else springs to mind.
- The "their wrestling sucks" argument just shows how short people's memories are. Two out of their three matches with the KOW were excellent old school tag matches. The Briscoes match showed an intense, physical side of Shelton Benjamin that, at that time, I didn't think existed. The Wolves match was a great simple way to steer home an awesome weekend of wrestling.
