Mike's Thoughts: A pretty solid tag team match, but one we've seen probably half a dozen times already. Nothing really groundbreaking here. The Real Americans didn't have any major issues getting on the same page – they just got beat. A 4-way match was announced for either Smackdown or Raw to determine new contenders, so I expect the drama to build between the two heading into WrestleMania.
