I am sick of tag team matches

Just the name "tag team" makes me sigh and dispirited. It like eating a jacket potato with nothing on it. Its bland.

Last nights RAW was every cliche of RAW for the past 7 months. Boring Reigns promo. Seth Rollins with his shitty voice and cowardly heel act and then the Authority coming out because how else can Trips and Steph justify their salary than putting themselves shamelessly on TV. Then they announced a tag team match. Yep that will keep the audience tuned it. A tag team match. Well whoopty shit.

I have seen so many multi man tag team matches since 3hr RAW that I have become conditioned to feel depressed every time "tag team" is mentioned. Its synonymous with "filler" or "standbye" its meaningless and boring like a jacket potato with nothing on. Atleast puts some cheese of baked beans on it.....or a ladder match or a cage match.

Point is I am bored shitless of heels v faces in what is the most overused gimmick match right now. Tag team matches need to go to hell....or Smackdown whatever is easier.

Re: I am sick of tag team matches

Yep, we all are and have been for quite some time tired of tag matches. It's been going on for YEARS now in this shitty era, too. It's a fucking joke. They do it to fill time because practically every Raw and absolutely every Smackdown is filler these days, so they do it to fill time. It's not going away anytime soon, either.

Yeah, might as well just make Teddy Long GM of Raw at this point.

Tag team matches are very repetitive nowadays.

You know what's worse than "tag team"? Six Man Tag Team....

Re: I am sick of tag team matches

Tag matches involving proper tag teams are still worth watching, especially when the title surrounds it. The Tag matches that piss me off are the pointless filler ones, six man tag matches have become a common theme, so much so we started seeing them on the Divas side of things.

The next week or so will show if improvements are being made or not, if last night's Survivor Series team match leads to Owens vs Ambrose and New Day vs Usos then that's good booking.

Re: I am sick of tag team matches

could they have at least PRETENDED to add some sort of bogus stipulation? Like, the winner of the match gets to decide the kind of match Reigns vs Rollins will be? As soon as I heard what the main event was I immediately changed the channel.


see, at one time, the main event match didn't matter....you still watched because the drama was so unpredictable that you wanted to see how it was going to end, but considering the WWE has decided that "unpredictable drama is dumb and the WWE isn't about that anymore", then non-stipulation matches become instantly no-watch tv

exactly. give me a reason to care. SOMETHING to invest in. Oh, Reigns team won? Cool. Didn't do shit for the storyline.

Like you said, just something as small as picking the stipulation at Survivor Series would have sufficed. But "creative" can't even give us that.
