wait, so even if they say publicly, in an interview that the IC has not held them back, that they only benefitted - you would still not believe it, as you think 100% they would say in private otherwise - but you can never prove or verify this opinion because you don’t know them - but i’m guessing you will vehemently argue that its right regardless?The safe "it was great" similar to how Jericho and Dustin were "fuck you WWE is great and you fans are over analyzing" until they left and gave true feelings.
If you asked them privately off the record if they thought they've been used perfectly as a tag team, you're full of it if you think they'd say yeah.
As far as 10% surely you have these examples of them not getting reactions as heels. Because I've shown them getting reactions on a debut and for being heels. You've done nothing to back up they were cold prior to the Best Friends feud
mate… that is some millennial zoomer online shit right there
