Well, it seems that the WWE's is no longer concerned with revitalizing its tag team division.
Just last week, the company split up Rhodes Scholars and now it appears that the Prime Time Players aren't too far behind.
Titus O'Neil has been discussed for a singles push. This would likely mean a major de-push for his current tag team partner Darren Young. Vince McMahon has been high on Titus for some time now.
I understand why the WWE would want to get O'Neil's solo career started as soon as possible. However, I feel that he is currently better served as a member of PTP, simply because the tag division needs to keep some of its momentum. The fact is, the division just lost one of its best teams in Rhodes Scholars. Couple that with the potential loss of PTP, and you might as well just disband the division and deactivate the titles altogether.
This may sound a bit dramatic, but outside of those two teams, there really isn't much competition for Team Hell No. Ultimately, up until last week, the WWE had been doing a solid job at revitalizing the division. However, now it appears we will never see the company bring the tag division back to its former glory.
Sadly, the WWE has really missed the mark in terms of keeping the tag-team tradition alive. Let's face it, pro-wrestling was built around giving fans different gimmicks to enjoy. Sadly, this is particular gimmick is becoming a lost art, as both WWE and TNA are moving their focus away from tag-team wrestling.
In the end, I am hopeful that the company doesn't break them up right away. Don't get me wrong, I realize the WWE really hasn't given them a title push, but with their biggest threat disbanded, they have nothing standing in their way at getting a shot for the gold.
