Breezango are not faces because they're still not meant to be. Saying they are faces is like that stupid **** argument where they claim Reigns and Cena are heels, they just don't have to explain why.

Okay, what was Austin then for a majority of his career? He acted bad and did things a heel would do but still was considered face.

Looks like the WWE isn't the only promotion with too many titles.

I am predicting Cody will win, if he doesn't win the ROH World Title tonight.

But in this case, the WWE are not only claiming but also booking them to be faces and I'd think except you, for some odd reason, everyone else in the Wrestling Thread also thinks they are faces.

I would like to know why you say they're heels?

Do they
a) Wrestle like heels and cheat in their matches?
b) Back off if the challenge gets too tough?
c) Wrestle mostly against storyline faces?
d) Talk down to the crowd and not acknowledge them positively in entrances?
e) Do things to anger the crowd and gain heel heat?

In my estimation, they are as babyface as can be right now.

In comparison, Roman only fits the last criteria (and very rarely the second last) and isn't really a heel.

Adam Cole's possible arrival in NXT means......

The Glorious Reign is running out of time.

Eh, that title is going to be off Roode before Cole has a real chance to win it.

Roode will probably end up losing it to McIntyre anyways.

We'll see what happens next Saturday. It's usually a tradition for Takeover to have someone sitting in the stands and the WWE acknowledging them. Roode and McIntyre did it. Asuka did it too. Takeover is where the unexpected happens. Nobody of any note was in attendance at Takeover San Antonio (okay a drunk Matt Riddle but the WWE didn't acknowledge him) but hey, Seth Rollins appeared and that was a bit of a surprise. He has PWG the day before, so we'll see. If it's not Cole, it could be Lio Rush or Kyle O'Reilly, both of whom are already in town for Evolve.

They do seem to fit into the face or self-absorbed tweener category.

I think NJPW should unify the IWGP Heavyweight and Jr Heavyweight Tag Team Championships.

Other than that, I don't think they have too many. The US title will likely be defended in ROH as often as in NJPW.

You could argue that the NEVER Openweight Championship and the Intercontinental Championship are basically the same thing, though.

But at least they only have the one true World Championship instead of 3 like WWE (WWE, Universal, NXT) or 2 like Impact (World Heavyweight and Global Force).

The problem with WWE is so many of their titles are exactly the same with nothing but the show it happens to be on to differentiate them.

WWE/Universal/NXT
RAW/NXT/SD Women's
RAW/NXT/SD Tag
US/Intercontinental/UK

The only title they have with a unique purpose is the CW title.

In NJPW at least the titles are separated by weight classes

So New Japan is going the UFC right in terms of their titles I see. A smart move on their part because the UFC has done it right for the most part.

I do think eventually the Impact/GFW titles will merge.

As for New Japan's USA expansion, I see New Japan USA more like ROH or PWG rather than 1994 WCW. New Japan USA isn't going to attract the casual fans, like Impact tried to with Hulk Hogan in 2010 and there's nothing wrong with that. At least I hope that's what New Japan USA will do.

how about NO

considering our current situation, I think the chances of anyone without political experience winning any sort of high office again are near ZERO

I wouldn't vote for him
