TAMPA Abraham Lincoln once said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”

It’s an insight the members of The Corre should take to heart. Plagued by infighting and a lack of direction in recent weeks, the band of renegades continued to fall apart at Extreme Rules as Wade Barrett & Ezekiel Jackson failed to beat Big Show & Kane in a WWE Tag Team Championship Lumberjack Match.

It was yet another disappointment for the squad of Barrett, Jackson, Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel. At WrestleMania XXVII, The Corre lost a huge Eight-Man Tag Team Match to Show, Kane, Kofi Kingston & Santino Marella. Weeks later, Slater & Gabriel dropped their tag titles to The World’s Largest Athlete & The Big Red Monster. This string of failures has had the team members at odds, constantly bickering instead of working as a unit.

Tonight, Barrett & Jackson had the opportunity to put their group back on the right track. If they could take down two of the largest Superstars in WWE history, they’d prove that The Corre truly were the future of sports-entertainment. But even with Gabriel & Slater watching their backs, the duo couldn’t stay on the same page.

Battling in a ring surrounded by WWE Superstars and NXT Rookies, Jackson looked impressive as he displayed his amazing strength by bodyslamming the 485-pound Big Show. But Barrett couldn’t resist the opportunity to batter his rival and tagged himself in. It was a serious error in judgment. After a failed attempt to deliver the Wasteland to The World’s Largest Athlete, the British Superstar was nailed with a chokeslam and pinned.

This loss is yet another embarrassing setback for The Corre. Will it be a wakeup call for the group to finally get things together? Or is the set headed for a brutal breakup? Check out SmackDown on Friday night to find out.
