PostSubject: Tag Division   Wed Aug 24, 2011 1:15 pm

From my perspective, WWE have really dropped the ball as of late (regardless of the Summerslam finish, the follow-up has been less-than-inspiring if you ask me), but I do like that seeds are being planted to resurrect the rotting corpse known as the tag division.

Sure, I wasn't too fond of how they had Lawler blatantly call the now-former tag champs shit (nor how they had him de-emphasise Punk on the same night, but that's another story for another thread), even if Otunga and McGillicutty weren't impressing anybody. Still, the point is they seem to have renewed the focus on the tag belts, specifically with the new team of Kingston and Bourne. Not only that, they seem to be going ahead with teaming up Miz and Truth in what could be an interesting heel tandem.

WWE don't exactly have a track record these days for really pushing the tag division, so I'll believe that they're really pulling the trigger on this when I see it, but what do you guys think?

The tag belts should have more respect given to them so anything that gives them that will be a good thing. Take Beer Money Inc. Take two good mid-carders. Give them a name (not just Bloggs and Smith), matching kit (make them look like they are a team) and there you go.

Myron has it right. You need to create actual teams. Guys that have a joint name and a joint look. I like that Kofi and Bourne have started wearing kit with colours that match, but they need to bring in guys designed to work as tag teams.

Don't give the belts to two random upper card guys; give us dedicated tag belts. In the old days you could have believed tag teams like LOD, Demolition, Bulldogs, and the Harts could face off with the world champion. They need to get back to that.

The Hart Foundation and The British Bulldogs were part of my childhood. Watched them at my grandparents when they showed one US match along with the British ones. That, along with either corned beef or chicken with beans and Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) made up part of Saturday for me. Good times!

Since creative never has anything for Zack Ryder (which is a travesty)... they need to create a tag team based on his persona.

I'd love to see a sort of Bromance, male bonding kind of tag team between a couple of goofy best freinds.

Kind of like Billy & Chuck but without the "gay" angle it turned into.

Some kind of tag team with someone, and call them "The Broski's" and have them engage in Zack's typical Youtube styled hilarity from week to week.

Dunno who the other Broski would be, but i'm sure you could stick anyone with Ryder and they could become the next Edge & Christian.

I want to see a British tag team managed by William Regal. One guy a flyer and the other a bruiser.

That would be a good combo.

I always liked tag team matches. Some of TNA's older stuff was brilliant. AMW and Team Canada has some pretty epic battles. And of course the EntouRAGE vs. the Chavs at the FWA show we went to all those years ago was spot on. There's so much more room for a bit of variety and it really is a shame the tag titles have been treated as a gimmick by WWE the last few years.

If you could take the roster today as it is, throw together some tag-teams, give them a name and try to make them stick, what would you do?

As I said before, I'd create "Da Broski's".

Maybe Yoshi Tatsu could be the other Broski.

I certainly agree that they need new actual tag teams. Apparently they're looking to bring in talent of that nature. In the mean time though, it does make sense that they've banded together two "known" guys, especially since they're aiming to give them a tag team name and build them up with that image. Nice change of pace from the usual "this guy and this other guy" setup.

I agree. I don't have a problem with them using established talent as long as it's got some legs in it. They tag them as a proper team for a decent amount of time. It's always good to have the specialists in but they do need to make sure they know how to handle them. They've had more than a few clanger teams that they just didn't get.
