Welcome to another Wednesday weekly column. This week I will be giving my thoughts/ideas on how to revamp the WWE tag team division. The WWE tag team division has shown to be little importance over the past few years. For the last couple of months, WWE have been throwing together main eventers to fill in a tag team match. But Seemingly WWE recently has been spending more time with the tag team division. But anyway; here’s my plan to revamp the WWE tag team division.
I ask the question, what the hell happened to the tag division? WWF/E had great tag teams like Road Warriors, Demolition, The Rockers – more recently Legacy and The Hart Dynasty. If you look at TNA, despite there horrible product and bad booking, they do have actual tag teams like Motor City Machine Guns and Beer Money. If MCMG and Beer Money were to go to WWE, it could more than likely fill a massive gap that needs to be filled for the Tag Division. Why would it be good for both teams to switch over to WWE? My answer would be they would be the four men known to have re-revolutionized the Division. They easily hands down are the two biggest tag teams in TNA right now. I think the WWE tag division would be better for them to compete in if they did both go to WWE mainly because it’s a fresh start in a new company, more recognition as wrestlers and it would re-revolutionize the Division that they would be known for, new storylines could happen…fresh ones. Those are the reasons why I think if MCMG and Beer Money should go to WWE.
You may be wondering who their opponents would be? Now, this would be a little tricky but with a bit of time and all that it could work. Firstly we look what tag teams WWE have at the moment. Ok, so there’s the current tag team champions David Otunga and Michael Mcgillicutty, now I’m not actually sure to be honest how popular they are with the IWC as in how they are considered as a tag team. From what I have seen these past few weeks; these guys can work well with each other. I don’t know if this is just me but once that fail Nexus reputation wears off of them I do strongly believe they will be considered as a talented tag team. My reasons being is because they have relatively good looks, Otunga pretty good on the MIC, Mcgillicutty being the son of ‘’Mr Perfect’’ adds a special unique about him, both are rather good heel superstars. I just feel with some work and time; these guys would be a great tag team. Secondly WWE have the Uso’s whom I think are the best tag team WWE has to offer. Why would I say that about the Uso’s? ‘Cause they are an actual tag team. I find their characters very entertaining and interesting. I think this because there are them selves, there cool and the haka (Dance they do when they come out) is always enjoyable to watch…it gets the crowd going and excited for the match. Who else? There’s still Rhodes and Dibiase. We seen they were pretty good in Legacy, both have pretty good Mic skills and decently good looks, both good wrestlers and great at doing tag team moves so I say why not continue to work these two into a tag team.
With Motor City Machine Guns and beer Money from TNA and for WWE to work greater and use the talent they have already in their company we could really see the tag team division revamped!
Now, hopefully at least some of this would come true, I defiantly think it will work but whether WWE will do something like this I don’t know. I don’t believe it would be a hard thing to fix the tag team division. It may not be as easy as what I said but then again it shouldn’t be that hard with Vince’s wallet and the ‘’creative team’’, if their that creative they should be easily able to do this.
I would love if you could kindly give me your thoughts and opinion on this matter. Just stuff like…..do you think the tag team division could be revamped this easily? Do you like tag team wrestling? Are MCMG and Beer Money right for WWE? Would TNA’s tag division be ruined? With both of the tag teams new to WWE, would they get a good reaction? Basically whatever your thoughts/opinions are. I enjoyed writing a column that is not about Punk/Cena/Triple H etc. Not that I don’t enjoy writing about them but it’s good to write a refreshing topic.
That is all for this week folks. As always I hoped you enjoyed this column and I personally would like to thank @alexitawilmont from twitter as she said some lovely words about my column last week, it meant a lot and I’m just showing my appreciation for that.

To be honest, I am a huge Fan of The Guns and a huge Fan of TNA! We always talk about how bad the WWE Tag Team Division is but what about TNA’s? Has TNA a good Tag team Division just because they have MCMG and Beer Money? I guess no, TNA has kinda the same Tag Team Diviison as the WWE has! The may have two big Tag Teams but thats all they have! They had great teams like 3-D or the Main Event Mafia or LAX or even The Band …..#
Well, it seems like TNA & WWE are not in their prime with their Tag Teams…..
The way i see it is, TNA have better tag teams than WWE. Now i’m not a huge /regular watcher of TNA but anytime i watch their tag team division its better than WWE and the main point was that if MCMG and Beer Money went to WWE, it would fill that gap for the tag division imo.
I agree. I feel that WWE is still the better overall show, but TNA is killing them in the Tag Team department. Those matches are usually the best thing about watching Impact Wrestling or a TNA PPV.
I wonder if the WWE will ever get a shot at either of those teams. I would love to see how they would fit in.
Oh yea no doubt WWE is the better overall show. And thanks!
TNA does have a better tag-team division, but the show is so badly booked and run that I refuse to watch it. If WWE want to strengthen their tag-team division they should seriously try to get Beer Money and MCMG into the company, because they are two incredibly good teams that would help the division. They also need to stop creating random tag-teams, only for them to be split up, especially with the amount of people not being used properly.
If the rumours about the Kings of Wrestling getting signed are true, then that will also help out the division a lot. add those three teams to the division and it’s a lot more solid than it is currently. The Usos are the only true tag-team left really, and even if there are only four teams, as long as they are strong and perform well, the division would be improved, and other good teams could be brought in. Plus they could bring up the team of Hunico and Epico from FCW, or the Rotundos to add some diversity to the division. Especially now as the belt is on someone who lacks charisma but it decent-ish in-ring, and a guy who is decent on the mic, but can’t wrestle at all; that just destroys the value and credibility of a belt that is already deemed practically worthless by many
Anyway, at least for now I’ll be sticking to Chikara for any tag-team/trio matches, and hopefully WWE can sort out this once awesome division
Yea, once those tag teams are in or at least when they have 4-5 established tag teams then its a whole new ball game. More idea’s etc for the tag division would open up and they’d be rolling!
Honestly, it doesn’t matter who is brought in if WWE isn’t committed to the Division, and don’t book them properly.
Well i do see them trying harder or spending more time on the tag division but if they were to really spend time on it they would need to bring in the likes of MCMG and Beer Money or KOW. Their is just not enough talent for tag division in WWE at the moment.
Great point! I would hope maybe if they get more talent, they will feel inclined to use it. As poorly booked as the Tag Titles and the entire division is right now, the talent pool for tag teams isn’t exactly anything to brag about for WWE. I would hope that getting tag teams of epic caliber would light a fire under the creative team and the tag division.
Well I also wonder why the hell did the WWE disenegrate the Tag Team Division?They had lots of great tag teams but they broke some teams up for no reason at all and they failed in thier singles careers.I actually read a report yesterday about Triple H trying to revamp the WWE Tag Team Division.Now the WWE has signed The Kings of Wrestling Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli who I think could be a very good addition to the dead Tag Team Division considering they are a very talented tag team.Another way to revamp the Tag Division were to push The Usos and make them Tag Team Champs.Now bringing in MCMG would be great for the WWE Tag Team Division because they are fresh exciting and innovative but TNA would be pretty stupid to let them go.Now Beer Money wouldn’t work in today’s WWE because well I don’t think they want two beer drinkers representing their division but since the WWE has become edgier lately and isn’t that PG then it could work could you imagine matches between The Usos MCMG Beer Money and the KOW?Those would be epic matches that would make the Tag Team Division important again but then why the hell would TNA let them go?Now the WWE should also try to sign The Briscoes who are a fantastic tag team from ROH and if they were in the Tag Team Division it would be so much better.It would be awesome if the WWE got the WGTT Back from ROH but that’s unlikely.So if the WWE had a Tag Team Division of The Usos MCMG Beer Money KOW The Briscoes and WGTT the Division would not just be important but it would be back to the way it was back in the old days.So the solution to fixing the WWE Tag Division is to sign the talented and established tag teams from TNA ROH and other wrestling companies.
