According to numerous sources within the WWE, plans are in place to put a big emphasis on the tag team division in 2014.
The WWE tag team division has been heavily criticised over the years for lacking depth and on occasion being boring, however the WWE has decided to focus on the division in 2014.
One of the lowest points in recent years came in late 2010 when the team of Vladimir Kozlov and Santino Marella became the tag team champions. In recent months the division has improved, especially since The Rhodes Brothers won the titles in October but more needs to be done to cure the damage done by years of bad booking of the division.
The reason for the WWE’s decision to focus on the division is said to be because of Triple H’s affection for tag team wrestling. Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque made the decision to push the division in recent months and is said to be dedicated to returning the division to its former heights by introducing new tag teams.
The repackaging of Primo and Epico as ‘Los Matadores’ is said to be the first of many new tag teams set to debut in the next few months.
Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards of ROH fame are set to sign for the WWE in the next few days after competing at the recent NXT tapings and many see this as a big moment for the division, if the WWE makes the decision to keep the team together.
The WWE are also set to hold a three-day tryout camp for tag teams in January in an effort to sign fresh new teams to be a part of the new revitalised division.
