WWE Hall of Famer Gerald Brisco recently said that Tag Team wrestling in WWE and other promotions are getting more and more difficult day by day. I found out the reason being lack of chemistry between tag team partners.
Gerald Brisco is quite right about this. Among all the promotions, WWE is suffering the most from this problem. We have seen the main roster of WWE is suffering terribly from weak bookings of the Tag Team division. Honestly, every division in WWE is suffering badly.
Gerald Brisco On The Difficulties Of Tag Team Wrestling Nowadays
The only brand that is doing something good in WWE is the NXT. We have seen them making some excellent tag teams in the past. But main roster completely destroyed them. Tag teams like the Revival, the Ascension, the Vaudevillains, the Authors of Pain, Sanity were some of the greatest Tag Teams made by the NXT and destroyed by the main roster.
We cannot blame the covid-19 pandemic for everything. It is completely on the main roster creative team who are failing badly to book good story lines for the Tag Team division. Vince McMahon is to be equally blamed seems he has most of the controls of the main roster in his hand
Gerald Brisco recently spoke on this matter when he featured as a guest on the Wrestling Inc Daily. The WWE Hall of Famer said;
“It is really hard for a tag team to find [chemistry]. I think that’s the trouble with, and I’m not going to go into today’s product, but they’re just put together so quickly and if they don’t click and blend within the first month or two, it’s broken up. These kids don’t have time to develop that chemistry and develop a great tag team.
“Jack Brisco and I were lucky we were blood brothers. We were real brothers. So, we had that bloodline and that mindset, we both had that amateur [wrestling] background. We had the exact same coaches from middle school, all the way through high school, and all the way through college… so it was easy to kind of read the mind… [and] we were great at reading body language.
“When you have a partner like that, where you can just look at and look at his body positioning, you know? Even with the Funks we had such great chemistry because we knew where they were, except Terry Funk was kind of crazy and we could never really figure him out. But we kind of knew what direction the match was going and where to go just simply by body positioning.”
