WWE upset a lot of fans when they pulled the plug on the previously-announced WWE Tag Team Championship unification match at WrestleMania Backlash. Instead, fans were treated to what turned out to be a very entertaining six-man contest between The Bloodline and RK-Bro & Damian Priest. On last night’s episode of Raw, Randy Orton and Riddle announced that they still wanted to unify the titles.
It appears that match will happen, but the titles might not be unified. While discussing Raw on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that he asked around about the plan with several people from WWE. They said they expect a unification match, but they do not anticipate the titles being unified.
“So, this is what I was told on this. They are going to do the match, but as of right now, and I was also told this can change, but, they are not planning on actually unifying the titles. But, they are planning on doing the match.
So, I don’t know if that means another run-in DQ. They obviously can always change their mind, but they are right now planning on doing the match. I’m presuming it’s going to be the next pay-per-view. That, I don’t know for sure.”
The WWE Universe was already upset when the match between the Usos and RK-Bro was scrapped. Previous reports indicated that there was never a plan to unify the tag team titles. That still seems to be the case, despite yet another build towards a unification bout.
Another bait-and-switch on the highly anticipated matchup may be a bridge too far for many fans. As always, things can change, but advertising a title unification twice and not delivering either time would be baffling. Time will tell if WWE decides to switch gears on this very confusing storyline.
