Shane & Miz vs. Usos

The Usos def. The Miz & Shane McMahon to become the new SmackDown Tag Team Champions

HOUSTON — Raise a glass, if you are so inclined, to the SmackDown Tag Team Title reign of The Miz & Shane McMahon, a.k.a. The Co-Besties, a.k.a. The Best Tag Team in the World, a.k.a. George Mizanin’s Pride and Joy, struck down just weeks into its existence by The Usos at WWE Elimination Chamber in a match that showcased Miz & Shane’s growing skills as a team and the wide chasm that exists between them and some of the more established tandems in WWE.

If the result wasn’t an outright reality check, it was definitely a comedown for an evening that started with The Miz bringing out Maryse to announce that they were expecting their second child (Miz dedicated the match to his growing family). The former WWE Champion was so fired up that he pulled off an honest-to-goodness springboard and seemed to be willing his team into the advantage against a duo that was not so much out to beat him and Shane as expose them.

In that route, Jimmy & Jey were likely surprised. Miz & Shane executed the “cut the ring in half” strategy, and they did so in the most daring possible fashion, with Shane-O-Mac planting Jey Uso through the commentary table with a Leap of Faith. The Awesome One had Jimmy Uso all to himself in the ring, but the same energy that carried him to the cusp of victory led to his defeat: Miz executed the Skull-Crushing Finale and rolled Jimmy over, but the Ano’ai high-flyer reversed his pinfall into a crucifix rollup, stunning the father-to-be with a pinfall and earning The Usos their sixth Tag Team Title. The only ones more shaken than the punch-drunk Usos were Miz & Shane, who walked up the ramp in near total silence — save for an “I’m sorry” from Miz when Shane finally sat up from the wreckage of the table. It was heartbreaking, it was sudden, but if Miz & Shane are going to truly pursue tag team greatness, they might have to get used to it: It happens to the best of teams.
