WWE: Which Former Tag Champion Is Trying to Break Back into the Roster?
WWE Is Trying Out A Former Tag Champion, But Will He Stick?
With the tag division an afterthought in today's WWE, you need to eventually become a singles contender or you might as well consider yourself yesterday's news.
If you think about a couple of years, you may remember Trevor Murdoch. He used to be in a tag team with Lance Cade and eventually, the team fizzled out and so did Murdoch's career.
We haven't seen him for a long time and now the company is trying to work him back into a singles career.
Good luck with that.
Former WWE Superstar Trevor Murdoch worked a dark match prior to tonight's SmackDown taping in Nashville, Tennessee, losing to Jey Uso.
Murdoch received minimal reaction from the audience and and cut a brief promo on Tennessee prior to the bout.
The WWE World Tag Team Champion controlled the match's early going, but Uso came back with a flurry of offense and won in approximately three minutes with the Snuka splash.
Murdoch also worked a dark match prior to last night's Raw taping in Knoxville, Tennessee, losing to Evan Bourne.
Well, I think it's safe to say that Murdoch won't be getting a call up to the main roster any time soon.
When you get zero reaction from a crowd, you might as well not even show up to the arena, and the reality is that he doesn't have the personality to carry a feud or a persona.
Murdoch was great as a tag wrestler because it's more about the group than the individual parts, and now that he's out on his own, there's nothing there to make him a worthwhile commodity in today's WWE.
Today, tag teams are only made as quick fixes to fill time instead of having programs like we did in past generations.
Decades ago, Murdoch could have settled into a great niche as a tag team superstar, but now, there is no opportunity for a guy like him and it's unlikely the WWE brings him on as a full-time performer.
It's sad, but it's the culture of the company right now.
