Re: So, today I legitimately forgot who the Tag Team Champs were.
There were periods in the mid to late 00s where I forgot who various champions were at all levels beneath the World Titles. Ask me to chart out who the Tag & IC Champs were from about 84 to 00 and I could probably get most of it right. Ask me to do it from 02-10 and I could give you vague descriptions of certain periods, but not much else.
That said...The Shield as Tag champions have been on TV every week and actually beat a well built team in Team Hell No to win the titles and there are teams for them to work with. Really, it is the best the tag division has been since the Attitude Era. Between then and now, it feels like we'd have one or two really good teams (MNM & WGTT for example) and then they'd have nobody to work with and they would ultimately fizzle out because, shit, what do you do with them?
At least The Shield are treated as something important, have at least a handful of teams to work with, and are showcased as meaningful champions, moreso than many of the champions since the Attitude Era.
