Oh come on. Bennett is at least average.
Bennett had a mediocre at the very best match with HIROSHI TANAHASHI when Tana was arguably in his prime. If Tanahashi can't drag a great match from Bennett, Bennett is hopelessly bad, and should be counting his lucky stars each and every day he can ride his wife's coat tails.
I'm not Bennett's biggest fan, but I think his work in-ring is, at least, average. The Tanahashi statement isn't fair. Tana never (well, just that time with Roddy in Philly, but hey, it's Roddy Strong) works in "Ace Mode" outside of Japan. He's always in house show mode in the USA or Europe. To be fair, I enjoyed more the Bennett-Tana match than Cole-Tanahashi, and I wouldn't say that Adam Cole is mediocre bc he wasn't able to have a good match with Tanahashi.

Let's just forget that Maria followed him to ROH.

That's rather revisionist. Tanahashi came in with a really bad back.

Weren't the reports that Tanahashi specifically wanted to wrestle Bennett and that he was very happy with the match himself?
I was in the front line when we battled page 15
