I can't understand how someone could actually enjoy thirty minutes of sloppy spots one by one, awkward transitions, poor crowd and a lame finish, and when they end the match, they fucking think it was great. Wow.
yeah the WGTT matches this year have sucked....ultra boring IMO.....I've always been real positive about different aspects of ROH over the years, even in times when things have been at a low point but I can't honestly think of a time when I've been less interested in the promotion.
ROH's TV foray so far has been underwhelming to the point of failure and even though the Steen angle is almost impossible to F up, they are really taking the momentum out of it...
Being the main story on the TV show doesn't mean they're popular. From my experience of watching their matches their reactions seem to be going down by each show and the crowd are always quieter during their matches than other matches on the same card because they just go through the motions and don't get the crowd involved in their matches. Corino's far from the best worker in the promotion but I much preferred his matches with Bennett this year than nearly all WGTT matches this year because he got the crowd involved with them and made the fun.
Don't agree with the Bret comparison either as I don't think their matches have been technically all that sound either. Nearly every match has just been a match and that's it. Never much of a story or structure or limb work.
I think their personal relationship with Cornette and WWE history is working against them really bad because they never seem motivated or have a desire to have the best match on the card. Cornette and Kelly are so in love with them because of their WWE and OVW history they just look over it and there isn't really anyone to tell them they've sucked and need to step their game up.

Maybe he woke back up and tried sitting through them again?
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.
On the topic of WGTT, am I the only one who hates Charlie Haas' skullcap? I don't know why but I think it makes him look like a total douche. Might have something to do with the fact he never seems like he wants to be there
