Not really true. Yes Mainz stayed solid in the Bundesliga but back then Tuchel definitely had a harder task at his hands than when he left (less financial support, had to get them promoted first).I'd probably go with none having improved, but I'd also say none have been any weaker either. Mainz are still a mid-table Bundesliga side, Dortmund have stayed at roughly the same level for the last five years under a few different manages in the post-Tuchel era and PSG have been pretty much the same as well. At least that's what the league forms are telling us.
In cup competitions on the other hand I'd argue every team have been worse after Tuchel's departure. Remains to be seen whether that's the case at Chelsea too, but one thing's for sure is that the bar is set very high because the cups were definitely the highlights of Tuchel's Chelsea career.
As @hasanejaz88 has pointed out, Dortmund have definitely been worse. And I also argue that PSG have gone backward, they failed to win the league after he left and as of now he's the only one to ever get them into the CL final.
The guy is clearly an incredible good manager but obviously a massive pain in the arse to work with, the whole clashing with Boehly doesn't surprise me at all.
