Maybe I was never a Briscoes fan to begin with? b/c that would be quite accurate.
I'm not "big" on ROH, but I do attend the shows when they come to Chicago Ridge twice a year. Still a damn good show, regardless of the talent. Anyway, I said what I said of you because you kept mentioning ROH alongside your distaste for the Briscoes. Personally, I don't mind Jay and Mark being in the tournament since they're an established team and they can help put over a newbie pairing. I just think everyone around here gives shit to ROH, and unfairly at that. It's in the dumps right now, let's be honest, but you needn't mention it in every one of your posts.
And Seabs, I would not prefer to see the Briscoes over a different team, because that'd be silly! But I also don't know the reason why they're booked for this particular show. Perhaps PWG had some other teams in mind but they were booked. Or maybe they're saving some money by not flying in more costly teams, who knows for sure? At this point, I am putting my faith in the company to deliver, because the last two years, that's certainly been the case more often than not.
P.S. I definitely have a soft spot for the Briscoes. I introduced my girlfriend to wrestling with the Steenerico/Briscoes Ladder War and she became hooked on it from that point on. So, yeah, they'll always have a special place in my heart. They may not be PWG regulars or even PWG favorites, but I think they're capable of producing a good matchup when paired with the right team. Should they win that match? No way, but they're not hot garbage.
