The Usos have been a vital part of the success of The Bloodline and hold both sets of Tag Team Titles.
The duo won the SmackDown titles back at Money In The Bank in 2021, before adding the Raw titles on the May 20th, 2022 episode of SmackDown. During this period the brothers have become the longest-reigning WWE Tag Team Champions in history surpassing the New Day.
However, recent developments have hinted that their run of dominance could be coming to an end. Fresh off the back of the Judgment Day winning a shot at the Raw Tag Team Titles, it was announced that a tournament will be held on SmackDown to decide number one contenders for the SmackDown titles.
This is the first time that the two sets of titles have been regarded as separate entities in a number of months, paving the way for the unification to be ended.
The Usos’ Dominance Set To Be Broken?
In a new report in the Wresting Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer has noted that the idea for the change came directly from Triple H.
“The idea right now on the tag team front is that there are two sets of belts. The Usos are champions but the Raw and Smackdown belts are different. This is a new Paul Levesque move and it does allow the Usos to lose one set of belts and keep the other. It was explained to me that the hope is it makes fans think it’s more likely somebody beats them for one set of belts.”
The Usos will be back in action on the January 23rd edition of Monday Night Raw. The special episode of the red brand will celebrate the show’s 30th anniversary and is set to feature an “Acknowledgement Ceremony” with “every generation” of The Bloodline. In the ring, The Usos will put their Raw tag team gold on the line against the Judgment Day.
