This tag division is looking really thin

Vince has really hurt it, War Raiders barely had the titles and they was called up, Heavy Machinery was barely getting some momentum and they was called up. Now Street Profits just win the titles and now they're apparently called up and will likely drop the belts soon.

I mean who do we got in this tag division? UE, Burch and Lorcan, Forgotten Sons, if Street Profits leave thats all we got left. They're gonna have to start churning out some new teams and quick. They're just gonna have to pluck some teams from the NXT live events and try and get this tag division some depth.

They've got a fair few teams on the live shows that could do with some NXT screen time. Doubt Street Profits are gone anyway. Breezango will probably be around in NXT for a bit.

There's Rinku Singh and Saurav Gurjar, 3.0, Cezar Bononi and whatever name they gave Adrian Jaoude.

Re: This tag division is looking really thin

WWE's singles mentality has hit critical mass on more then one occasion

Despite what you may have heard about so-called "smark marks" and the "IWC" some of us are actually here to help. All you have to do is ask.

Re: This tag division is looking really thin

Yep, it sure is thin. The Strauss team (The Outliers) has probably the biggest potential from the house show tag teams. They are getting good heat already.

I don't think the Profits are going anywhere in the short term. That in-ring promo thing they did with the Forgotten Sons was really poor from both teams and that will need to improve before going any place.

Jaoude and Bononi have been working as singles lately. Don't know if that is a permanent arrangement.

They need face teams. Carrillo and Mendoza would boost things. They have a lot of new guys in the singles division that could be used

It's not thin. More underutilized. They got teams they can plug in they just haven't

Re: This tag division is looking really thin

they should start using some of the tag teams from NxTUK, they got a nice little division of tag talent.

Re: This tag division is looking really thin

With this one I feel the same way I feel about the Raw and SmackDown situation that if they unified NXT and NXT UK or NXT Bangladesh or NXT Jupiter, they would have a much more solid product and it would engage much more viewers to watch each of the Brand's programming.

Re: This tag division is looking really thin

Honestly, the way the main roster uses tag teams, all of them are better off going to NXT or something. Have a huge division there.

Yeah i think combining the NXT and NXT UK tag divisions would be the right move, especially since NXT UK's tag division is just as thin as well, i think it just consists of Grizzled Young Veterans, Mustache Mountain and Wild Boar and Primate lol.
