So the WWE has new tag team champions in Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't last week the first time these two teamed up? Maybe they've had some other matches over time, but it seems like this pairing is just a couple of guys that creative has nothing for, so let's put them together.
Now please, don't get me wrong. I am a big fan of each of these guys individually. And honestly, I'm probably passing judgment too soon on how they'll gel as a tag team. My frustrations with the tag team division or lack there of have been well documented on this blog and on YouTube.
That video is from about 9 months ago. I still maintain the WWE has done very little to breath any life in the tag team ranks. This makeshift team of Kingston and Bourne is a start in the right direction. But in my opinion, the first thing they need to change is their separate entrances. I never understood why any team enters the ring as individuals.

Back then though there were plenty of tag teams that they could have different programs with different teams going on at the same time. Now it's a week to week thing and sometimes we go several weeks without even seeing the tag team champions.
This blog is a lot of wishful thinking, but I'm hopeful this time that we may see something happening on the tag team scene. I'm still disappointed they let David Hart Smith go and a Hart Dynasty reunion is no where on the horizon. Again, I think the WWE needs to let some of these teams simmer for a bit. Don't split them up after a run as champions. Help keep the tradition of tag team wrestling alive.
