So here’s what’s up in the Tag Team division: The New Day are still your W. W. E. World. Tag. Team. Champions. An injury to Enzo Amore at WWE Payback derailed his and Colin Cassady’s chance to become The New Day’s No. 1 contenders, handing the spot, by default, to The Vaudevillains. The Dudley Boyz crashed a confrontation between champions and challengers to demand a redo of the entire No. 1 Contenders’ Tag Team Tournament, sponsored by Booty-O’s. (They make sure you ain’t booty.) Big Cass joined the fray looking for some payback for Payback.
The solution? An Eight-Man Tag Team Match, playa. The Dudleys served as de facto mentors to The Vaudevillains throughout the contest. But Kofi Kingston managed to battle his way out of a hole by taking out both Vaudevillains and tagging in Big Cass, who rampaged his way through the opposition and pinned D-Von Dudley with the East River Crossing. As for The Vaudevillains? They stuck it out till the end, but looks like they’ll have to abide by that most old-fashioned of strategies and live to fight another day.
