WWE Tag Team Splitting Up

WWE Tag Team Splitting Up WWE

After a few teases already, it was made very clear on today’s WWE SmackDown that a tag team is on the verge of splitting up.

As announced, there was a Grayson Waller Effect segment as Waller and Austin Theory, the WWE Tag Team Champions, were joined by DIY.

DIY were clearly trying to highlight the recent issues between Waller and Theory, including last week when Waller pulled Theory in the way to take a dive from Gargano so that Waller could avoid it.

Gargano also had a bit of a heart-to-heart with Theory harkening back to their days in The Way in NXT, saying he was proud of Theory for what he accomplished on his own, but said Waller is using him.

Eventually, DIY challenged Theory and Waller to a title match “right now”, and just as Theory looked like he was going to accept, Waller interrupted him and declined the challenge.

A brawl then broke out, during which – not once but twice – Waller dodged a strike from Gargano and Ciampa, leaving Theory in the way to get hit by it.

A WWE Tag Team Championship match between the two teams is definitely on its way, as is a split between Theory and Waller, which is heading in the direction of a Theory face turn.

A date for the inevitable championship match has not yet been announced.
