After WWE Smackdown, it seems like WWE is going in a fresh and new way in terms of the WWE Tag Team Division. The first thought that I had after seeing The Uso's pick up the win is that when will Cody and Goldust split and face off against one another? This tweet below is from Goldust earlier in the week:

I took this with a grain of salt for this very reason: Why would WWE let them drop the titles if they did not have another plan for them? They have been the most consistent tag team in 2013 and into this new year. Cody vs. Goldust needs to happen and it need to be at WrestleMania XXX. As for Ryback and Curtis Axel, they are very boring to me. The lack of character development makes them disposable. The Uso's have the crowd behind them and Total Divas. Oh yeah, and they are exciting and unique inside and outside of the ring. They have a great look, adding the face paint. Aside from them and the Outlaws, who else is there? Time for a new team to debut, especially since The Real Americans may not be involved in the tag title chase. The Ascension would be a great fit to debut, possibly Miz and Ziggler. New Age Outlaws need to be faces. Nostalgia should always been faces.

Score: 6/10

Cesaro Steps Up in the Main Event

He drops the name Antonio and picks up a huge win over Randy Orton. Seeing Cesaro win may just be the storyline of Randy Orton losing to his opponents before the Elimination Chamber and coming out as champion. That is the likely scenario, but Cesaro came out and put on a great match. Give credit to both guys in this match. Randy Orton needed to step up his personality in the ring while facing another "heel." Can't you see Cesaro thriving as a face in the WWE? I sure can andn am a big fan of that happening. Cesaro has an offensive skill set for fans to cheer him. The European uppercut is fantastic and rare to see these days. The Cesaro Swing is always a crowd pleaser. The best part about Cesaro, to the fans, is that HE CAN WRESTLE. Simple, huh? He stepped up in a big spot and Orton put on another classic match.

Score: 8/10

WWE Smackdown Grade: 7/10
