Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston vs. Team Hello No for the WWE Tag Team Championship
I'm surprised Kane and Bryan have lasted this long as a unit. I really did expect WWE to blow off the team with the anticipated break up and singles match at WrestleMania this year. Instead we have a random tag match against a team whose drama is motivated solely by AJ Lee. I'm going with the champs to retain, in a somewhat surprising and upsetting decision.
This is an interesting match to me as Dolph Ziggler is in an odd place at WrestleMania this year. He is definitely suffering from what I call "part-timers syndrome," as his place on the card has been mostly usurped by returning WWE part-timers, but Ziggler can still make an impact at the PPV. There is of course the lingering Money in the Bank contract, which Ziggler could use at 'Mania to insert himself into the title picture, and I think that is the best direction in which WWE can move. When the part-timers are gone after WrestleMania, WWE can focus on a World TItle picture involving Ziggler, Del Rio and Swagger, and that can only help all three of those guys. I predict a Team Hell No Tag Title win, and a successful Ziggler cash-in.
I really think this is the end of Team Hell No. Maybe they get another rematch, but this is the beginning of their split. Bryan is too good as a single's competitor to be stuck in a tag team that has reached their limits. Big E Langston is going to have his first match and I doubt they don't let him get the victory for his team. This is a match that I think could steal the show, if given the time. Ziggler and Big E are really good together and it still gives Ziggler a chance to get the World Heavyweight Championship. I can see Dolph leaving with all the gold.
On one hand, it’s time for Daniel Bryan to use his great skills in singles competition again, on the other, the same goes for Dolph Ziggler. At this point, who needs that singles push more? The Show Off. Because of that, Team Hell No retains as Ziggler will soon collect on his Money in the Bank.
Looking forward to this match to see what Big E can do; I heard and saw plenty to like about him in NXT. I don’t think we get to see him introduce the five count (here’s wishing), but I see the champs retaining for at least one more title defense. Dolph will have something else to do later in the night…
