When Theodore Long was the manager of SmackDown, there were so many tag teams. His influence is still alive because SmackDown focuses more on the tag team matches. Now that Triple H is the ruler of the WWE mostly, the Raw brand he is doing a lot of a certain types of matches. What matches I am talking about? Battle Royal matches. If my memory don’t fail me, there has been at least three Battle Royal matches in the past months without counting the traditional Royal Rumble that every superstar enter one at a time with exception of the first two that enter at the same time. In this article I will talk about what is more effective, the Battle Royals or the Tag Team matches.
The Battle Royals allows wrestlers to steal the show and give participation to a whole roster. Each superstar doesn’t have the time to have a singles match so this is the perfect match for giving the opportunity for each superstar to have TV time. The tag team matches allows four to six superstars at a time fighting. Are effective because we don’t get bored watching the same two wrestlers fighting. Also is interesting watching some tag teams that have chemistry and they are like dancing partners. The Battle Royals allows only one winner. The tag team matches allow two or three winners. The Battle Royals are rare. The tag team matches are very common. The Battle Royals will be always exciting. The tag team matches are not always exciting. The Battle Royals are egotistical. The tag team matches are about teamwork.
In conclusion, I think that both the Battle Royals and the Tag Team matches are a good way to give the opportunity to fight to several talents. However, the Battle Royals are quite more exciting than the Tag Team matches and that is a fact. The important thing is that Triple H don’t become too predictable and make a Battle Royal every month because it will happen to him the same as Theodore Long with the Tag Team matches.
