Okay, let's play a game. You can bring in three outside teams to sign with the E. Then you have to create tag teams with the talent already in the E. Let's see if we can create at least eight tag teams. We'll say KOW are already signed
1. MCMG 2. Briscoe Brothers 3. British Invasion 4. Kings of Wrestling 5. Jimmy & Jey Uso 6. Slater/Gabriel 7. Cena/Orton (Joke) 8. Random Nexus Future Endeavors 9. Henry/Truth 10. Marella/Tatsu

This should be fun;
1. Kings of Wrestling 2. Flatliners (Asylum & Matt Burns) 3. Briscoe Brothers 4. Beer Money 5. The Uso's 6. Otunga & McGillicutty 7. Evan Bourne & Mason Ryan 8. Ryder & Hawkins (or Baretta if Hawkins has been released) 9. Tyson Kidd & Santino Marella 10. Truth & Consequences (R-Truth and Kane) 11. Riley & Kingston 12. Brodus Clay & Heath Slater 13. Drew McIntyre & Sheamus 14. Jinder Mahal & Great Khali
WORLDS: Chris Sinclair NORTH AMERICAN: VACANT WORLD TAG: Briscoe Brothers SHIMMER: Nicole Matthews HEART OF SHIMMER: Nicole Savoy SHIMMER TAG: Mount Tessa MAPLE LEAF: Adam Page MAPLE LEAF TAG: Young Bucks HOUSE OF PAIN: Dick Justice HOP TAG: Beaver Boys PHOENIX OF RISE: VACANT GUARDIANS OF RISE: VACANT
Fun game! I was just saying to someone else yesterday that I think that the WWE has suddenly found themselves with a crowded midcard that they could really benefit to pair their existing talent together to give more people a chance on television to break out on their own as future singles stars (anybody remember where Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels came from?)
A lot is sort of made about the Morrison-Truth former partnership, but I think a Morrison-Kingston tag team would be even more fun because the two have styles that mesh a lot better. I would for some reason also like to see Curt Hawkins given another shot. I also really loved the Zack Ryder/Edge promos from when they were teamed up on a couple of Raws a year ago where Edge couldn't stand Ryder but Ryder just couldn't "get it." I think Ryder would be great in that role with either the Miz or Alex Riley.
My tag division: 1. Kings of Wrestling 2. Beer Money 3. Kofi Kingston & John Morrison 4. Zack Ryder & Alex Riley/The Miz (depends if you want to go heel or face) 5. David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty 6. Jimmy & Jey Uso 7. Wade Barrett & either Drew McIntyre or Mason Ryan 8. Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel 9. Tyson Kidd & Evan Bourne 10. Jinder Mahal & Great Khali 11. Brodus Clay & Curt Hawkins/Johnny Curtis & Curt Hawkins 12. Trent Baretta & Axel Mulligan (Baretta playing Ricky Morton while Mulligan clears house in a Jesse & Festus formula tag team) 13. Darren Young & Percy Watson (South Beach Boys) 14. MCMG to feud with Tyson Kidd/Evan Bourne
"Don't matter how many times you get burnt, you keep doin' the same." -Boadie Broadus, HBO's The Wire
Faces: Usos Zack Rider/Trent Barretta -- Some kind of Long Island Theme Kofi Kingston/Ezekiel Jackson Riley/Face Heath Slater Tyson Kidd/Evan Bourne - 80s throwback team with matching fringe outfits and such. Santino/Beth Phoenix - Either a 'rekindling' of the old angle, or a new one where Phoenix does like Sara Del Rey and fights in the men's division without it being a big deal (that is, NOT like Chyna back in the day)
Heels: Incoming KoW Otunga/Mcgilligutty (I hate that he's not Joe Hennig) Rhodes/Dibiase - Heck, have them team WITH Otunga and Hennig as Legacy Swagger/Ziggler (managed by Vicky, and leading to a mid card break-up/feud angle around WM or so) Mason Ryan/Brodus Clay (as the big heel 'punishment' team that makes the little guys look good)
Tweeners: 2nd City Saints (incoming Cabana and Ace Steel, who I know has worked WWE anomyously a few times, or with Punk on occassion)
Morrison/Barrett - This would be HHH's 'corporate' team.. could lead to lots of stuff down the road.
MCMG, or, if they don't like Sabin, Alex Shelley and Christian (who would be awesome together, IMO)
faces: the Uso's Kane & Big Show Yoshi Tatsu & Evan Bourne Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins Darren Young & Percy Watson Richie Steamboat & Alex Riley
heels: Kings of Wrestling Briscoe Brothers Justin Gabriel & Skip Sheffield Mike McGillicutty & Husky Harris Tyson Kidd & Brodus Clay Tyler Reks & Mason Ryan (i was hoping for Reks & Chris Masters before his release)
Kings of Wrestling American Wolves Briscoe Brothers MCMG's Beer Money The Colony
those are the best teams out there. I don't see why HHH can't somehow get them if he wants them. If he did that would kill ROH though. I didn't add Haas and Benjamin because I think they resigned a new deal with ROH. If the WWE got the rest of these teams I'd bet they'd join as soon as they could though.
and I know it sounds crazy, but if I was HHH I'd seriously look at the Colony in CHIKARA. Imagine the Colony with the WWE machine behind them. They wouldn't be able to keep the masks on the shelves. Every kid in the world would have one.
combine those teams with current WWE talent
Uso's Otunga and McGuillicutty Slater and Gabriel Big Show and Ted Dibiase- do a Million Dollar Man/Andre thing. I think Big Show works best in tag teams and Dibiase might be the same If not Show and Dibase as a heel team, then Show and Mysterio is a face team. Big Show and Santino could work as heels. Could also be dumb if faces. Brodus Clay and Tyler Reks - this team would be so bad ass. Like new age Demolition. I actually can't believe we haven't seen this yet. R-Truth and Mark Henry would make a hell of a team. Both are scary. Truth on the mic and Henry as the muscle would be great. Goldust and JTG - they both like gold. I don't know, could work. Drew McIntyre, Wade Barrett and Mason Ryan. Perfect group. Sheamus could feud with all of them when they recruit him and he turns them down. That's months of stories right there. Great Khali and Jinder Mahal Dude Busters - these guys were ok. Good undercard team Hart Foundation - either bring back DH Smith or put Tyson with someone else and give them the Hart gimmick
that's 17 tag teams. Way more than they would ever need or want and all are very (imo) realistic to get.

I haven't been able to see a WWE program since they moved Smackdown to the SyFy network, since I don't have cable, but if Goldust is still on the roster, it'd be interesting to see him drop the Goldust gimmick and become Dustin Rhodes once again in order to team up with Cody as The American Dreams.
