The revolving door of tag teams ready to challenge Kofi Kingston and R-Truth for the WWE tag team titles finally found someone up to the task of holding the throne, as Kane and Daniel Bryan were able to get a victory at Night of Champions.
In one of the most interesting little trivia facts you will hear from WWE this year, after CM Punk, the longest title reign in WWE actually belonged to Kofi and R-Truth. They won the tag titles from Primo and Epico in April.
That nearly five-month title reign is the second-longest tag title run in the last two years, trailing only the team of Kofi and Evan Bourne.
The team of Kane and Daniel Bryan is brand new and one that actually has good potential. I don't see this being the duo that suddenly saves the WWE tag team division, but as far as being able to get entertaining stories out of an angle, the possibilities are there.
Of course, a lot of that depends on how you feel about the anger management skits that the two were running a few weeks before the pay-per-view. Some of them worked; some of them were trying way too hard to be funny that they came off so bad.
Kane and Bryan are both so good in their roles that they can make this odd-couple pairing last as long as WWE decides that it wants to before ultimately splitting them up and giving them the singles match they are building toward.
I would caution that WWE can't drag this out too long, because the fans can easily turn on them if they don't do the breakup sooner rather than later.
But at least the tag titles are with two wrestlers who are going to resonate, at least to some degree, to the audience. That wasn't the case with Kofi and R-Truth.
