Tag Belts Going Nowhere For Now

As stated here on Friday during the preview, I felt that if the Highlanders did not win the titles on Sunday night against the Spirit Squad, that they were not going to win them. Sunday night at the PPV, they did not, and I will stand by what I said. This face team that reminds many of the old Bushwackers has already had enough title shots, and despite the constant rumors that the Spirit Squad will be no more, the team continues to stick around to the point where maybe keeping the belts on them a little longer is not such a bad thing.

I'm not sure of the WWE's thinking on this one. It looked as if going in the Highlanders were the easy choice to hand the belts off to. The members of the SS could go their separate ways, and maybe 1-2 stay on RAW (Kenny would be an easy choice based on his real-life relationship with Mickie James) and then you could put 1-2 on Smackdown and 1-2 on ECW. The Highlanders would protect the titles for a month of two and then the new gangsta tag team of CrymeTime would eventually come in and get the belts.

For some reason, it was not to be for the Scotts, as the SS took the clean win on Sunday, and seemed destined to again keep the belts for another few weeks at least until Cryme Time or maybe in a shock the Hardy's reassemble and get a shot. The match itself was your usual SS match, full of the boys taking their share of bumps and then interference getting the best of the Highlanders. A decent match in the tag ranks, just still a little bewildered at the outcome and where they go from here with the two teams.
