Andrew Everett, Trevor Lee, And Why PWG's Booking Is So Frustrating

In a lot of ways, PWG is a heel territory. This isn't a bad thing. It is not a value judgment on the men behind the curtain, but a statement of fact. The other thing that is true based on the first statement is that the Young Bucks are always at the top of the place, and when they're not, it's not for very long. And because that's true, what happened at Mystery Vortex III is a lot of things, but surprising isn't going to be one of them. Still, it's infuriating. Deeply infuriating.

You see, the Bucks are a tag team dynasty of the likes that we haven't seen since the Midnight Express. They have won every major tag team title that exists. So, in as much as a heel team can do this, they are perpetually over. That also means that it's a really good idea to make new challengers, new foes, for the Bucks to vanquish.

I thought PWG was going to do this with Andrew Everett and Trevor Lee, like I thought they were going to do it with Joey Ryan and Candice LeRae. They just.... don't. For whatever reason, the Bucks have a stranglehold on the tag team division of PWG. And as long as that's the case, I'm not nearly as interested in them as I could be.
