The Usos have enjoyed a successful run as WWE Tag Team Champions. Since capturing the straps on Mar. 3, Jimmy and Jey have elevated themselves near the top of the card. Who would have thought at the start of 2014 that they’d eventually be teaming with the likes of John Cena?
The same can be said for the Wyatt Family, Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan significantly increased their stock this past year. The marquee programs (and wrestlers) that the trio has been involved with speaks to WWE‘s confidence in them. Bray, in particular, seems destined to break out as a singles star.
While “The Eater of Worlds” is busy competing in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship ladder match at Money in the Bank, Harper and Rowan will challenge the Usos for the tag titles. The time is ripe for a change.
The Usos won’t be hurt that badly if they lose their belts in Boston, and it’s not like they’re reign was too short. By Jun. 29, they will have held the titles for 118 days. For all you statisticians out there, the average title reign for this championship, with lineage tracing back to 2002, is approximately 87 days.
More importantly, Luke Harper and Eric Rowan have nothing to do at the moment. Having the Usos defeat them would pretty much stifle any chance of a feud continuation, and neither team can afford a boring summer. Doing a title switch guarantees the program will persevere, putting solid emphasis on the tag titles near the top of the card.
The Usos are great baby faces and fans will enjoy seeing them chase the titles again. For the Wyatts, winning the belts gives them necessary credibility during a lull in their wrestling year. Who knows, maybe the Wyatt Family will hold three title belts after Money in the Bank.
