Tumultuous tag team
ALBANY, N.Y. -- When General Manager Theodore Long announced last week that Matt Hardy and MVP would team up to take on Deuce & Domino for the WWE Tag Team Championship, nobody could have expected to see the two coexist. The heated rivals have been battling over gold for weeks, but that would be MVP's United States Championship. This week was a different story, however, as the heated rivals were forced to compete for the tag titles. Neither man wanted to team with the other and Montel Vontavious Porter made it clear that he could, "win the tag titles alone."
Nonetheless, Hardy and Porter arrived in Albany to face the duo that attacked their challengers during MVP and Matt's One-on-One Basketball Challenge one week ago.
As the match progressed, it became clear that MVP didn't care about his tag partner, watching as Hardy was pummeled for most of the contest by the cohesive unit of Deuce & Domino. When Hardy finally mounted enough offense to give him the opportunity to tag in his partner, the Franchise Playa MVP was not in his corner, but rather on the floor "spittin' game" to Deuce's girl Cherry. When MVP returned to the corner, Matt tagged him in the hard way, slapping his partner across the face before he delivered a Twist of Fate to Domino.
Not to be outdone, the United States Champion MVP entered the ring and tossed Matt to the outside and then covered Domino to get the victory and the WWE Tag Team Championship. Usually after a team accomplishes such a high honor, they celebrate their win together -- this is not one of those teams. As Matt looked on in stunned disbelief, MVP stood in the center of the ring draped with all the titles.
Now that the Ballin' Superstar and Matt Hardy are tag champions together, where do the rivals go from here? Will they be able to successfully defend those titles as a team, or will MVP continue to alienate Matt? More importantly, will Matt Hardy, now an eight-time tag team champion, forgo his pursuit of the United States Champion held by his co-champion MVP?
If the words MVP spoke after the match are any indication, the uneasy partnership between Porter and Hardy will be nothing short of interesting. "I don't coexist with Matt Hardy, I just exist and Matt Hardy follows," he said. Now it remains to be seen if MVP can lead.
