LAS VEGAS — Maybe a little corporate sabotage — and that sweet “Step Brothers” T-shirt — were just what The Golden Truth needed to get a leg up on Breezango. By turning up their foes’ joint tanning bed to 11 and frying them to a crisp in the process on last week’s Raw Pre-Show, Goldust & R-Truth not only robbed Breezango of their devastating good looks, but also their trademark agility (not to mention a tolerance for pain) during WWE Money in the Bank Kickoff, allowing the oddest pairing in WWE to claim their very first win.

R-Truth & Goldust team up to battle Tyler Breeze & Fandango to get the action going at WWE Money in the Bank 2016.

And what a win it was, as sweet for Golden Truth as it was sour for Breezango, who had made life hell for Goldust & R-Truth over the last month both in and out of the ring. The tanning bed stunt was a case of turnabout being fair play in that respect, though comedic value aside, it was clear from the opening bell that Golden Truth possessed a sizable strategic advantage.

Which meant the order of the day was chops, chops and chops, each delivered in brutal succession to the blistered and peeling  chests of WWE’s most gorgeous tag team — first by R-Truth to Fandango, then by Goldust to Breeze. The dastardly duo did somehow manage to power their way to a brief advantage by isolating Truth, but The Bizarre One’s re-entry to the match turned the tide swiftly in Golden Truth’s favor. Breeze’s last-second attempt to interfere was neutralized by R-Truth, and Goldust sealed the deal with the Final Cut to Fandango.

Look at it this way: Breezango was already burnt to a crisp. What’s another three seconds under the lights going to hurt?
