Default Is it wrong if I think that tag teams should take lesson from Lay-Cool

No seriously, I made the reflexion to myself and I was like " WTF ? You are seriously thinking this ? " but in the end, I think this is right, they were a really good tag team.
Let me explain this, they weren't that good on the ring and on the mic, that wasn't a five star job but that was alright and after Mickie James, they weren't really mean, they go from the bully b**** everyone hate to the bully who were too much about making people laughing.
So, what makes me thinking this ? Well, they were a team. I think they were one of the last tag team in the WWE.
So, Lay-Cool was a team of Layla and Michelle who got together ... just like this, in the exact same way that many tag team got together. But let's me compare this with the today tag team

1) The team : Like I said, Lay-Cool was a team. What did that means because many people forget this. That means that they aren't two random people together but that they need eachother andf that's what they had done. First, you get Michelle McCool who is the leader, she isn't the best on the mic but she get charisma but that's not all, she is also the strongest of the team, most of the times she was the champ, the person who was going to get the job done and on the other hand, you get Layla, she was really beautiful and good on the mic and she was the weakest of the team and she wouldn't be the one who would make the win but she would McCool help to beat all the other girls and ONCE it was going to be done, she would go after the opponent and act like she was the best.
You see the thing ? This is a tag team, they need eachother. Michelle McCool needed Layla because she help her to improve on the mic AND that helped her to be a heel because she would always beat someone only because of Layla and Layla on her way got benefits from this because the charisma of McCool help her to get one and the fact that she would always help Michelle and after act like if she was the best who can make some people piss off
That's something who is missed on the tag team today, they don't need eachother. They are too similar ( sometimes, it can be something good ). Look at the Hardy Boys, they needed the partner to win and you could see it in the many tag team moves they would do. And the thing who is missed are who is who. they just do the same thing, there is a big need of making A the guy who will do that thing and B the guy who will do that thing. If the tag team bring nothing to them, they shouldn't be together

2) The Friendship : That's also one thing who is missed, the partners most of the time don't like together. In LayCool case, they acted like they were friends but today, you could barely see it. Most of the time, this is just two guys who go to the ring together, there is no special interaction who can make you says that those guys are a tag team and that those other guys aren't a tag team but just two guys who wrestle together for one time

3) The attack : That's a other thing who is missed. It's the thing who can make someone over, it's the attack, especially in a tag team. Let's come back to Lay-Cool, they used full advantage of this. They would often do the same thing. Layla take the leg of the opponent and Michelle would finish her with a Big Boot. It's something very simple but that's a trademark, that was there things. They understood that they needed to work together. That simple move is enough to make them a tag team because it shows that to win, they work together instead of just doing attack and just don't care about what the partner is doing. They also understood the advantage of being a tag team, you can do things that you can't do alone and that was one thing Lay-Cool use, everytime they would do something against someone, they would use this at there advantage. Make a trap against Mickie James, mocking Mickie James, use the fact that the other can't do anything to humiliate them like they did against Mickie and Beth, take pictures of the other to humiliate Trish,... They are thing that could only be doing at two and this is what makes you hating a tag team.

So I know that they are some good tag team like Team Friendship and ... well, this is the only team who go well together, who is a real tag team but sadly, there are the only so I post that to show that a Freakin' Divas tag team was better than some of the teag teams who are on the WWE every week

Lay Cool was WWE's attempt to copy The Beautiful People in TNA, apart from putting paper bags on people they where virtually a carbon copy of them, just not as entertaining.

You mean take from the Beautiful People?
Well, they used hair-spray before, and Cody Rhodes had the PAPERBAG treatment going down.

Actually, they were different and if you really want to go with this, I will says that the Beautiful People were temselves a rip-off "Vince's Devil" and before, you got the Pretty Mean Sister but I will not say it because it's stupid. It's like saying that the TNA is a copy of the WWE or anything else. It's stupid and I think that the two bring something different on the table. The concept was maybe the same ( two mean girl who team up ) but they don't do it in similar way

I enjoyed Laycool. They were entertaining and probably the last good Divas storyline. I was never a fan of McCool. Always thought she was very overrated but her and Layla made a good team. I don't really care if they were a copy of The Beautiful People, which is a funny name considering Angelina Loves train wreck of a face, Laycool was funny.

I don't agree with your statement that Team Friendship is the only good team because they aren't a good team. Are they funny? Yes but by they aren't even close to being the best team in WWE. The Usos are the best team in WWE. I don't know why WWE refuses to utilize them. Primo & Epico are a better team than Team Friendship. Kofi & Truth were a better team. Mysterio & Cara will definitely be. Team Friendship is the perfect example of two singles competitors thrown in a tag team with no continuity.

If WWE actually gave a damn about their teams they could be better.

Did you read my post ? Kofi & Truth aren't a tag team because they do nothing together, there is no chemistry between, that doesn't looks like they go well together. At least, kofi and Bourne got some tag team moves
Mysterio & Cara are just two luchador for me, there is nothing special between them
Primo & Epico got a potential, they are brother or cousin, I don't know and Rosa Mendes could had give them some heat but sadly, they just got match and no segment to improve themselves.
The Usos are one of the greatest tag team today. Since they makes their debuts on Raw, I loved them, they got everything to be a succesfull team

Team Friendship had a chemistry, they had a story. It's credible for me to see them being a team and also, don't forget that they are two Main-Eventer. That can only means good things for the tag team division

Laycool really wasn't funny. I've seen kid shows for 7 year olds with better material than them. Everything from their childish nicknames, to the Piggy James shit even though McCool looks skinny as fuck, just sucked. The thing BP had over them was that they were tons more serious and knew when shit got real. Laycool was just unentertaining.
So to answer on the topic, no. Rather have 7 Claire Lynch's for a women's division.

Chemistry? Outside of the comedy segments they do what chemistry are you talking about. In the ring, they act like singles wrestlers. I haven't seen a single tag team move from Team Friendship. They don't even have matching attire. I like them as much as most of the people on this forum but they aren't a good TEAM. Maybe that will improve as they go on but right now they suck as a team. You can't blame tag team for not having a story. WWE creative has to give them one like they did Bryan & Kane.

Ok. MAYBE an overexaggeration. Maybe just 5, Sara Del Ray, Kelly Kelly, and Lacey Von Erich.
