Originally posted by Tribal ProphetYea I think Shane said the last (and only) tag team that they liked were the Road Warriors. Other than that, it seems the McMahons have never really thought to take tag teams seriously.
It's astounding that this is their attitude, considering the luck they've fallen into in the past with teams being successful.
Modern corporate WWE developmental under EVPTR John Laurinaitis has also taken the misguided philosophy that if we don't think a talent can main event Wrestlemania, we shouldn't waste our time investing in them. Which is crazy ("wrestling was never, ever like that, why do I have to headline Wrestlemania, why can't I just be Hillbilly Jim?" - Colt Cabana) but since a tag team isn't going to main event Wrestlemania, they don't put any effort into tag teams, and when they do hit on something with a team, they break them up into singles as soon as possible (e.g. Miz and Morrison).
Jericho's justification, I'm sure, is that Dolph just cost him his match, which upsets him both because he loses the winner's purse and because CM Punk beat Del Rio on Monday, and Jericho doesn't want to be outshone by Punk.
