WrestleMania results: Primo & Epico vs. The Usos vs. Tyson Kidd & Justin Gabriel - Triple Threat Tag Team Championship Match
MIAMI - On the Grandest Stage of Them All, the WWE Tag Team Champions stood tall against their challengers when Primo & Epico defied the odds to defeat The Usos and Tyson Kidd & Justin Gabriel in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match with their titles on the line.
Primo & Epico looked as sharp and well-coached (kudos to Rosa Mendes, who clearly has her clients operating at peak level) in a match they didn’t even know was coming until a couple of days ago. Only a few years after Primo (as part of the Colons) unified the Tag Titles against The Miz and John Morrison at The Show of Shows, he and Epico operated as efficiently as the WWE Universe has ever seen. Relatives of the great Carlos Colon, the team used its quick speed and devastating strikes to stave off the wild offense of The Usos and the daredevil strikes of Kidd & Gabriel. ( PHOTOS)
Primo was a workhorse to start the match, tossing his opposition over the ropes to keep the contest 1-on-1 and keep himself from being overwhelmed by the odds.
Tyson Kidd & Justin Gabriel became partners in the final days leading up to WrestleMania. These men have each held Tag Team gold before, though never with each other. However, they looked liked they’d been pairing together for years. Kidd in particular hit a heart-stopping powerbomb off the top rope as Primo was preparing to suplex Jey Uso off the top rope, leaving his opponents strewn in a heap acrossthe canvas.
The Usos, two of the toughest workhorses in the WWE Tag Team Division, came up regrettably short in the match only 24 hours after they helped induct their uncle Yokozuna into the WWE Hall of Fame. The twosome have long been staples in the Tag Team Title race, receiving multiple championship opportunities over the last year and turning in hard-nosed efforts in all of them. Tonight was no exception, as Jimmy and Jey constantly kept the other teams at bay. In one of the match’s highlights, the two joined forces and dropped Gabriel with a joint move, and a cross-body splash from Jey Uso left the champions splayed out across the outside of the ring.
In the end, however, Primo & Epico proved their mettle as champions when Epico administered a last bit of cunning offense by blocking Gabriel’s 450 Splash and administering the crippling Backstabber to Jey Uso when he tried to seize his opportunity. The conniving strategy was enough to put an end to the competition and retain the titles for the wily champions. Clearly, they will not be robbed of their mantles so easily, at this Showcase or any other.
