Come on I think that most people want it by now. Sure Edge is having a semi-succesful feud with Regal and the IC strap, but it's not the same. E&C were the tag division. What's so wrong with having a tag team stick together for a long time. Some of the best tag teams were together for ever The Road Warriors, The Midnight Express, The Rock and Roll Express. Not everyone was meant for singles stardom, and when you find a pair that works as well as E&C did why break that up.

We might have been sick of seeing them fighting the Dudleys and the Hardys, but that's the WWF's fault for not making new tagteams. The tag team belts used to really mean something, or at least it seemed that way. Now they are just used for the old Russo plot of the can they co exist teams, and that just sucks.

Tag team wrestling can really be a good change of pace for a show. Why not have the tag belts on the line between two LEGIT tag teams during the main event. Tag Team wrestling can be a great tool for wrestling unfortenatley it seems to be lost. To bad...I miss E&C.

******SMACKDOWN SPOILER WARNING****************















Christian and Edge go at it on SD.

"After the match, Christian gets a mic. He's sure the fans expect him to throw a tantrum, that they like the fact that a former IC-Euro-Tag Champion can't even win a match anymore. He's not going to cry, though. As of now, he quits! "

May be this is the way to do it. Christian takes some
time off to think about things. Make Christian realize that he had a good thing with Edge. They are brothers after all, and when he comes back, voila, E&C are back together as a FACE team...

Me thinks the WWF might actually be moving this one the right way...

I want E&C back so bad as well, there was a time when team ECK was the funniest stuff on TV. Now they seem like just two guys with no real direction.

It's amazing as well that the Dudleyz & Hardyz are still teams. And I think E&C was a lot more fresher then either of those two teams easily.

There will always be some PPV/TV time for major tag teams why not have talented guys like Edge and Christian taken that time up unlike the complete bores that are on now... For christ sake APA vs. Spike/Tazz for WrestleMania, that's jakked match maybe Heat. Not the biggest PPV of the year

But that is because they are the only one capable of being broken up successfully and imo that has happened.
The Dudleyz are 100% a tag team gimmick. Never split them up.
Semi-shockingly it turned out the same can be said for the Hardyz. Everyone thought they could handle themselves solo but apparently they cannot (yet)

E+C are good wrestlers, good mic guys, got the looks, etc..the WWF gave it a shot, kinda blew it with their splitting feud but they were prominently featured after that. Edge has a good run now and at any time can be considered an upper midcarder/IC contender.
Christian, alas started off great but kinda was misused after..
Anyways, my point was..of any of those 3 teams they were the only one that could split and still be successful.

I'm kind of undecided.

I was hoping and PRAYING they'd split them up b/c a feud between them would've been off the chain. Unfortunately the writers broke them up at a bad time - during the inane Alliance storyline. The breakup was HOT as hell w/ Christian slamming that KOTR trophy on Edge and that one man conchairto but they made a couple huge mistakes.

(1) They made Edge job the IC Title to Christian at their 1st PPV match. BAD BAD MOVE.
(2) They blew the feud off at the very next PPV (No Mercy) in a just OK ladder match.

The Edge v. Christian could've carried out until WM but THEY BLEW IT.

I wouldn't mind so much them reuniting - but I really want to see Edge in the big time since that seems to be the direction they were PLANNING on going.

How about something that brings Christian and Edge back together, and they feel like they should team up, but they have a lot of past to bury. So they set up a brother vs brother "Best of 7" (or something like it). So we get some awesome, heartfelt matches, and at the end we either have so much energy that the Edge/Christian feud would just continue, or they could go back to being a fresh and renewed team. Just a thought.

I loved Edge and Christian as a tag team. They're backstage vignettes and mic work were awesome, but honestly, I don't think they ever put on great matches outside of the ladder matches and TLC matches. They're straight up tag matches with the Hardy's weren't ever that good. But I have a feeling Christian will make his return at WM to help Edge beat Regal for the IC in Toronto. That'll pop the crowd huge. It wouldn't be a bad way to start the show. I think it would be pretty cool if they reunited at the start of the show and went on to win the tag titles together later on in the card.

Ever since it became known that WM would be in Toronto (and E+C split up) I have expected them to reunite there..
Just like Trish winning the title..just for home town cheers..
Test however will do a heat promo bashing the city, and so will Jericho *grin*
