Usos: How WWE Took Away Santino Marella and Tamina from Them

Jack WindhamAnalyst IAugust 27, 2016

WWE has given up on the Usos.

If you need more proof, just take a look at who Santino Marella and Tamina, their manager, are feuding against right now. The unlikely couple has been working a program against Ted DiBiase and Maryse as of late.

The original plan was for Marella and Vladimir Kozlov to defend the WWE Tag Team Championship against Jimmy and Jey Uso. Management actually had given the tag titles to the comedic duo just for the sake of enhancing the storyline between Marella and Tamina.

Management, however, changed their mind.

The decision was made to utilize DiBiase and Maryse instead. Kozlov and the tag team championship have been put on the back burner.

WWE decided to bench the Usos for the same reason why they did so the first time around. Jimmy and Jey simply are not ready for the big leagues.

When management made the decision to bring these guys up from Florida Championship Wrestling, they were immediately thrust into a title program against then champions Tyson Kidd & David Hart Smith. The program was put to an end after management realized that the Usos simply were not experienced enough to perform on the main brand.

Management has made the same mistake again, and it's hard to see them doing so for the third time.
