For the second time in the last three-plus years, the WWE has revitalized its tag team division. Now more than ever, they’ll need to fortify and strengthen the portion of their roster that will likely be split in half. Some teams will be drafted solely to RAW while others will be exclusive to SmackDown with championship belts potentially designated to both brands again. This will open the door of opportunity for tag teams like Breezango, among others.
A quick glance at the landscape across the tag team division clearly sees The New Day as the head of the class. Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods have been champions for all of 2016 and beyond and are currently in the infant stages of a feud with The Wyatt Family. It’s not yet known if the eventual culmination will see the tag titles be put on the line. Enzo & Cass and The Club (Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows) have risen to the top of the division as well, basically swapping spots with The Usos and The Dudley Boyz at present.
The Vaudevillains received two title opportunities within their first three months on the main roster despite lukewarm interest from Vince McMahon and other top officials. The rest of the division finds The Lucha Dragons, Golden Truth, The Ascension, Social Outcasts, The Shining Stars (unless they’ve truly been given up on already), and Breezango. The quality vs. quantity debate will heat up as the brand split draws closer.
