On April 26th 2010, only one night after Extreme Rules, WWE delivered the fans that long for tag team wrestling to return to dominance in pro-wrestling a glimmer of hope. With that glimmer of hope, they started rebuilding their tag team division, small step by small step.

On May 6th 2010, WWE fixed something that should of never of happened in first place; they reformed the Colons. After breaking up last year, they had little to no success on their own, so now WWE put them back together in hope of reforming a very good tag team to build a once great division.

On May 13th 2010, a new tag team was formed, but with great intentions. Curt Hawkins and Vance Archer stated they had thirty days to make an impact or else they would be released from their contracts. Hmm... Something isn't right. WWE give us a tag team AND a storyline for them? I guess, we better take it while we can. Lucky for us, Hawkins and Archer did get contract extensions after beating down various other WWE Superstars.

On May 24th 2010, we were blessed with another edition to our growing tag team division as The Uso's attacked The Hart Dynasty after a match. This really proved that WWE may be serious about their tag team division and all of us at home were ready to get serious about the division.

And more recently on this weeks RAW, Vladamir Kozlov and Santino Marrella cemented a tag team friendship when Kozlov saved Santino from being beaten down by William Regal. Now here is my problem. This tag team will become a joke and my problem begins with the incredible hunch I have that we will have new tag team champions by the end of the year and they will be the Italian-Russian Connection (Marrella & Kozlov). I hope it doesn't happen, but knowing WWE anything, especially this, is possible.

To contrast the positives, the tag team division has also been hurt in 2010. Such as the newly formed Colons being disbanded again due to Carlito refusing to attend rehab because of a painkiller addiction. He was fired and destroyed hope of another run with Primo.

On April 2nd 2010, WWE also took a step back and split up Cryme Time for the first time. JTG and Shad have since then went onto have a feud and have now gone down their separate roads.

With this though, there still is hope as describe above. The Straight Edge Society is also going strong and a new group, Nexus has emerged. Along with discussion of another stable, The Fortunate Sons, I will withhold judgement on WWE's treatment of tag team wrestling..

So what about you? Has WWE improved their division or is that once great division beyond repair? Please Comment and tell me your opinion.
