WWE revamping tag team division with some major changes lined up

Even when the WWE tries to put more importance than ever on the tag team division, attention always seems to fall elsewhere and the tag teams are sent to the back of the line.

It's changed a lot from a couple of years ago, with the likes of The Bar dominating on Monday Night RAW while the New Day and The Usos were creating waves over on SmackDown LIVE.


Nowadays, that level of entertainment doesn't seem to be there but it sounds like that could change relatively soon.

It was recently reported that Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder reportedly asked to be released from their current WWE deals, with many speculating that they'd jump ship to Cody Rhodes' All Elite Wrestling Promotion - where The Young Bucks are also signed.

However, that situation has switched entirely with WWE reviving the tag team division and The Revival is said to be a big part of the change.

This week, rumours started circulating that the WWE will turn Andrade 'Cien' Almas face and have him team up with Rey Mysterio to boost the tag team division. 

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has reported that WWE officials are planning big things for the division and the teams within have been told that they'll soon receive a big push and it appears to be a counter to AEW who might be putting a big emphasis on tag team wrestling.


The Revival have already been told that they're going to be the face of the division, even though they asked for a release from their contracts which run until April 2020. With AEW in the mix, it's highly unlikely that WWE will grant any major release.


WWE also teased the reunion of Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins on Monday Night RAW earlier this week so that they have more bodies in the tag team division, especially since The Authors of Pain are going to be off television for several months following Akam's leg injury.

The feeling in the WWE is that Matt and Jeff Hardy will also stay in the WWE for another year as they have a third-year option in their contracts, something the WWE is likely to trigger with the brothers receiving a pay rise.

The Revival turning face and spearheading the division is something the tag team enthusiasts can certainly get on board with.
