A loss in the Tag Team Championship match at the 2013 Royal Rumble will be the beginning of the end for Team Hell No.

On one hand, it's unfortunate, because it was Team Hell No that gave the tag team division the kind of attention it had been lacking for a while. Now, there are quite a few solid tag teams that the fans take seriously and are compelled to watch.

Daniel Bryan and Kane have also been responsible for some of the best segments on Raw over the last few months. They're perfect foils for one another and have great chemistry together.

With WrestleMania XXIX approaching, there's no way Team Hell No stays together.

From a business perspective, Kane vs. Daniel Bryan is a match the fans will pay to watch at this point. The fans are emotionally invested in both wrestlers. Having them break up would be a big deal.

This isn't like when Tyson Kidd splintered off from the Hart Dynasty, when almost nobody cared about the future of the tag team of him and David Hart Smith.

A Daniel Bryan/Kane feud would have major heat to it. Right now, it could easily be the second-biggest rivalry in the company, behind whomever The Rock is feuding with.

It's not as if WrestleMania is going to need much more hype, with The Rock facing off with CM Punk, John Cena or both wrestlers and the likely rematch between Brock Lesnar and Triple-H.

The biggest show of the year should have the biggest matches of the year, though, and Daniel Bryan vs. Kane would be one of those matches.

Bryan is one of the best technical wrestlers in the company. Sooner or later, he'll deserve more than to lose in the way which he has been since becoming a tag team wrestler.

Breaking up with Kane will allow him to go back to singles competition and contend for either the WWE Title or World Heavyweight Title.

So the stage is all set for the seeds of dissension to be planted at the Rumble. One member of Team Hell No will cost the champions the belts against Team Rhodes Scholars.

Then in the tag title rematch at Elimination Chamber, the downward spiral will continue with Rhodes Scholars again coming out the victors.

Bryan and Kane will argue with each other, failing to control their anger. Ultimately, the only thing left would be for Bryan and Kane to settle their differences in the ring.

It would be even better if Dr. Shelby became a manager for one of the members of the team after turning on the other member.

As entertaining as it's been to watch Team Hell No grow as a tag team, it's going to be even more entertaining to watch them implode.
