“Vince McMahon Doesn’t Care About the Tag Team Division” – Former WWE Superstar Makes a Shocking Revelation

Published 07/05/2021, 8:00 AM EDT


WWE has some of the finest talents in the entire pro wrestling world. Despite this, not everyone gets chance to showcase their mettle, and those who do, just have one shot at it. However, tag teams don’t even get one shot to show their mettle as top guys. Why? Because Vince McMahon seemingly isn’t as sold on them as he is on singles superstars.

We have seen the presentation of tag teams in WWE. And compared to what we see elsewhere, there are definitely areas WWE and Mr. McMahon need to look at if they want to make WWE’s tag team a talk of the town. However, former WWE Superstar Tucker feels that is unlikely.

Tucker talks about WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and his view of WWE tag teams

One half of Heavy Machinery, Tucker recently appeared on The OTR Show. During the appearance, Tucky (as Otis called him) talked about a lot of things, including his thoughts on WWE’s tag team division. He shared that the feeling is Vince McMahon doesn’t really see tag team wrestling as a big deal.

He said, “To me, I feel like Vince doesn’t feel like the tag division can really draw money. At least that seems to be the way that they’re booked. Even when they have a super emotional story, they might get twenty minutes at the most. They’re never getting forty minutes, they’re never going on last.”

What Tucker said does hold weight as there are hardly times when two legitimate tag teams get a chance to show their mettle in the main event of any show. Although NXT is an exception. However, when it comes to the main roster, the WWE Chairman doesn’t seem to think that way.

We’ve seen top tag team storylines such as The Usos and The New Day in recent memory. But except those two teams, others haven’t really got a strong storyline and backing from management. Although we can see some emphasis put on tag teams in recent months, we don’t know long it will last.

After all, the two tag team champions on the main roster are AJ Styles and Omos on Raw, The Mysterios on SmackDown. Both are new tag teams and have top stars in them. We wonder what the case would be with the tag team division once these two stars drop the titles and head back to their singles careers.
