Because people don’t object or question the change doesn’t mean it’s worthless, it just means they don’t have a problem. Not every change of worth must be celebrated or protested.
So you think it's a positive move to make a change that barely anyone will notice? And you think it's a good idea because, overall, the tag formula would be the same but with a different name? What does any of that accomplish?
Yes and I already answered what it accomplishes(the rules coinciding with the matches)
And this is what it comes down to. It would be a gimmicky thing, as I said. Gimmicky/marketable. If someone sees a tag listed as "Lucha Rules" it might entice them more, but after 1 show even it would become an afterthought. Imagine the most recent PWG show but all the tags were "Lucha Rules"...but even as you admit, the matches basically stay the same. Nobody advances, in fact some might shun PWG for having taken a gimmick under their wing after being a rather "pure" fed for so long.
Gimmicky yes, but “too gimmicky” no.

Chikara has 2 of 3 falls for their tag titles.

Does the match lose credibility when the inevitable "break down" that happens in almost every single tag team match occurs, and falls are counted on wrestlers who are not "legal?"
Lets hear everyone's thoughts.
Now the brass and tacks. When I attend a live show, no I don’t care. I get so caught up in the moment I really don’t notice. But to be 100% honest on DVD yes it does bother me a little. It doesn’t ruin the match but I do start to wonder why they even bother tagging after awhile.

I don’t think that’s fucking stupid. Personally I just cheer for whatever wrestler or team I like better. I’m not getting paid so I don’t feel the need to play a role. i don't boo the faces though because i don't dislike any of them.
