Re: Team Hell No needs to reunite to save the tag division
The good thing about Team Hell No was that you had two completely different characters who struggled to get along, yet got along enough to the point that they dominated the tag team division for, what, 6-8 months. With them, it was a question of, if at times, will their differences cost them the titles.
Now, you have The Shield as pretty much a dominant faction WITHOUT the tag team titles. With the way they've been booked since day 1, it's like they're above the tag team titles or, in kayfabe, don't even care that they're the champions. On paper, a team like the Uso's or PTP can get a pretty big rub from dethroning the same guys that hold victories over Team Hell No, the WWE "All-Star" trio of Cena, Sheamus & Ryback and are partly responsible for Undertaker's absence (again, kayfabe wise).
The only problem with that is the bigger picture, with The Shield basically being bodyguards and the only possible elevation to come from it is one of them breaking out as a singles star. Nothing good will happen to the tag team division from it, because eventhough you have the Uso's, PTP and even the Real Americans, you still have Tons Of Funk and whatever they calling the Colon's now, who are nothing more than jokes. And as much as I like Kofi, please don't put him back with R-Truth. Then again, if Tyson Kidd & Evan Bourne ever make it back, that's either a tag team or the start of 2 more tag teams.
Far cry from the glory years of tag team wrestling in the past and that's expected. And regardless of what Bryan marks want to believe, Daniel Bryan DID NOT revive the tag team division. Because even with him and Kane's dominance, what other tag team became established off of their reign?
