Ok so Kurt was super over in his TLC return match so we definitely need Stephanie to come out and bury him

The Usos vs New Day (WWE SummerSlam 08/20/17)

Pulled the conclusion from my longer review on the Usos thread in Microscope because I think this match deserves some attention.

 

 

That was incredible. The first few minutes were relatively routine but well worked tag procedure. The Usos had good strikes as always and have a perfect heel demeanour. Once the hot tag came then shit got real. I've said that the Usos have great ending sequences but here they esentially did three in a row, culminating in a huge nearfall for themselves, a huge nearfall for New Day and then the victory. The crowd were popping huge for the big spots and, although all four workers had excellent performances, I want to particularly shout out Xavier for his awesome forearms and knees. I loved the innovative double team spots too. Low-key WWE MOTYC.

Huge pop for the Ambrose and Rollins stuff this week. Amazing what some thought out weekly booking can do. Revitalised two stale characters, made the tag titles seem important and got a huge reaction.

Hope they add Roman down the line

The triple threat match on Raw should be god damn incredible.

The Usos

27 July 2017 - 10:04 AM

Following their match with The New Day on the WWE Battleground PPV, there was a talking point going around Twitter that The Usos were one of the top five WWE tag teams of all time. They have certainly been in consistently good television matches during their WWE run and have a handful of really high-end PPV title matches under their belt too. As a babyface team, they got really hot in 2013 feuding with The Wyatts and The Shield and were a consistent factor at the top end of the tag division throughout the next couple of years. Jey's injury in 2015 allowed them a chance to rest their act but, although they remained consistent in-ring, there was a sense that their babyface routine had somewhat staled. But a switch to Smackdown after the brand split as well as a heel turn has really refreshed the team and, although the tag division on the blue side is quite weak, they've been once again consistently entertaining in-ring and as characters.

 

In terms of work, they're probably best known for their dynamic matches and for putting together exciting finishing sequences on a consistent basis. I'm going to use this thread to review matches from throughout their run to assess their case as an all-time top WWE tag team.
