NEW ORLEANS – Using their cohesion as a unit as well as their fast-paced, agile style of competition and great communication inside the squared circle, WWE Tag Team Champions Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne brought the boom to the bayou and defeated Jack Swagger & United States Champion Dolph Ziggler to retain the titles.

After weeks of vying for the managerial services of Vickie Guerrero, Jack Swagger recently got his wish, but his uneasy alliance with The Queen Cougar’s first client, Dolph Ziggler, was certainly a determining factor in the outcome of this contest. Perhaps Vickie’s inexperience managing tag teams played also played a role, but the chemistry between the WWE Tag Team Champions, Air Boom, allowed them to secure the win and continue their reign as the most impressive pairing in recent history.

Air Boom vs. Dolph Ziggler & Jack SwaggerDays before, Vickie assisted Swagger in earning a victory over Bourne in singles competition on SmackDown, but even her unmistakable screech wasn’t enough to slow down the high-flying championship duo, with Bourne getting retribution by and pinning Swagger at WWE Hell in a Cell, following an amazing reversal off of a double-team effort.

In an interview with WWE.com, Vickie noted that her dream would be to put together a stable that would rival the legendary “Heenan Family,” led by the incomparable Bobby “The Brain” Heenan. Swagger, her latest client, even went so far as to compare her to the great managers of the past. However, her track record is suspect, especially when it involves her clients teaming together against the tag team champions, and the loss at WWE Hell in a Cell only adds another blemish to they record.

Air Boom vs. Dolph Ziggler & Jack SwaggerThe apparent uneasiness between Ziggler and The All-American American is something that Vickie Guerrero will certainly have to work on, and help them find success together as a pair. After all, legendary tag teams of the past such as Demolition and The Hart Foundation had excellent managers early in their careers with Mr. Fuji and Jimmy Hart, respectively. Both of these great tag teams of the past also had phenomenal chemistry with one another, something that is clearly evident with Air Boom and of great potential for Ziggler & Swagger.

If Vickie Guerrero can channel her inner Heenan, and help build chemisty between Swagger and Ziggler as a unit, just as she has for the U.S. Champion as a single competitor and other Superstars such as Edge in the past, she may indeed match the triumphs of managers such as “The Brain.”
