Tag Team TLC
Eleven years ago, a tremendous era in the tag team division was highlighted by one of the most entertaining tag matches in Wrestlemania history. The Hardys, Dudleys, and Edge/Christian pulled off a death-defying spectacle at Wrestlemania X-7 that exhibited the passion, desire, and prestige that used to surround the titles. If there ever was an opportunity to regain some of this lost momentum, another 3-way TLC match may be just what the doctor ordered.
From the looks of things, Kofi Kingston and R-Truth are obvious candidates to participate in such a match, alongside Primo and Epico. I have little doubt that the athleticism possessed by these four would shine in a TLC match. As for the third team…Ziggler and Swagger have been involved as of late, but I see Swagger being tied up with Santino. As a result, following with the theme of rejuvenating the tag division, I’ll make the bold prediction that Christian will return, bash the current state of the tag division, and join Ziggler. Since Dolph claims that he brought prestige back to the United States Championship, the two would fit together perfectly espousing the same goals for the tag team titles. After a brutal TLC match, I see this goal becoming a reality.
I love the idea of reviving the TLC Match at WrestleMania. Also, it would be a great way to give much needed exposure to the tag divison and their current champions. I have to disagree solely for the fact that the card already has a Hell in the Cell match, along with other big marquee matches. This would get lost in the shuffle, even though it would be the most entertaining match. I agree that there NEEDS to be a Tag Team Championship match, and I feel that Kofi and R Truth will be involved as well. I would prefer the addition of Ziggler and Swagger, who would ultimately win if I made the decisions. What could this do for the long haul?
Say Ziggler and Swagger win the titles, you have two established stars who work very well together in every facet. After a few months, you can go the old way of having one turn on the other. Ziggler is the more popular,.but Swagger would benefit more from a face turn. He is a likable guy who is a product of "American Wrestling." I would love to see this match at Mania, especially because the talent deserves a spot. Make a fatal four way, with these three teams, and potentially the return of Christian/Del Rio or even Christian/Henry. I would not announce the final team until their music hits in Miami. It would give us a surprise return. There is no need to really market or try to cash in on an announced return because everyone getting it will be buying the show for other matches. Bring prestige back to the tag division, and this night could be a stepping stone for recreating the importance.
