WWE's Tag Team Division Is Far From Being Resurrected

Jack WindhamAnalyst IDecember 7, 2010

There was plenty of knee jerk reactions to Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov capturing the WWE Tag Team Championship on Monday Night Raw.

Many are under the assumption now that tag team wrestling in WWE is back on the right path.

Well, they're pretty far from that.

WWE simply does not have a lot of quality tag teams right now. Take the fatal four way tag team match for example: Marella and Kozlov, the winners and new champions, are intended to be comedy act; Yoshi Tatsu and Mark Henry were simply thrown together; Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater might be a part of the same stable, but they don't have the chemistry that comes with working together for years.

The Usos had their push immediately halted once management realized that they weren't quite ready. Hard to believe, but the tag team division on Smackdown isn't even worth mentioning.

Rest assured, this title win was not done to improve the tag team division; they did it to enhance the storyline between John Cena and Nexus.

It was also done to further the comedic romance between Marella and Tamina. Prior to this, the tag titles were used as a prop to enhance Bret Hart's return (by giving it to the Hart Dynasty).

The only way that the tag team division is going to become respectable again is if Vince McMahon wants it to be. Otherwise, we're just going to have people jumping to conclusion because of their own false hopes.
