For everything that RAW and SmackDown get right or wrong…the one constant seems to be that neither show has their shit together with their respective Tag Team Divisions.
Everything on RAW seems to be on hold until the New Day break the Longest Reign record currently held by Demolition (because Demolition are suing the company and WWE is incredibly petty). Enzo and Cass are incredibly over, but stuck in a holding pattern. The Club have been booked horrendously to the point of being as effective as training dummies. The makeshift team of Cesaro and Sheamus has potential, but they too are under the curse of ‘nothin’ better to do.’
On SmackDown they’ve brought back the Spirit Squad for a spell (and even a Tag Team Title Match), and the tag champions are kinda playing second fiddle to the Miz/Ziggler feud. The Headbangers are going to be back on next week’s show, despite the fact you have teams like the Ascension, the Vaudevillains, Breezango and AMERICAN ALPHA all desperate for TV time. The Shining Stars feud with R-Truth and Goldust might be the absolute pits over on RAW, but at least they’re getting a chance on TV. The Usos heel turn should’ve been a major revitalization but even their feud with American Alpha seems to have cooled off…
Yet NXT can legitimately hold a Tag Team Tournament and showcase all their Tag Teams in a somewhat equal light. It’s frustrating.
