This is wrong on so many levels.

This is true, but the key difference is that PWG is like The Dude (Lebowski) of pro wrestling - they don't give a fuck, they just wanna wrestle (bowling) from time to time (like, 10-12 shows per year), they book big Indy names in strong supercards, they have few strong homegrown names, and their matches may seem like spotfests often, but they have a strong in-ring storytelling (you can't say that for Davey's reign, or for Steen/Davey from BITW), with a ton of hot crowd support.
The key of PWG's cool aura is the fact they're a light-heart booking company, you gotta wait like 30-50 days to watch their show, so the anticipation is always high, and they don't need to handle a pressure of day-to-day operations like ROH.
Long story short, PWG is batshit cool (ROH is not anymore), and that's all that matters to me as a fan, but I will always be a ROH fan as well.
