WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
BIG SHOW & REY MYSTERIO VS THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS (c)
At Wrestlemania 30 the tag team division was given a major shake up with the announcement that Smackdown will be introducing its own separate tag team championship, creating a brand split among the tag teams in the WWE. With the inaugural champions being announced at Extreme Rules. Teams on Smackdown battled back and forth to secure their spot at the top of the new division on the blue brand via a series of matches over the course of four weeks heading into Extreme Rules. Two teams emerged as the new contenders, The Prime Time Players who are former WWE Tag Team Champions in their own right faced the former World Heavyweight Champion Big Show and his partner Rey Mysterio.
The tag titles were decided in a Steel Cage match at Extreme Rules, the team twos battled back and forth for over half a hour inside the cage with Titus O’Neil and Big Show being the last two men standing in the match. This saw these two behemoths go to war, but Titus O’Neil would pick his spot and escape the cage to win the World Tag Team Championships for his team, with the two becoming two time tag team champions and the first ever World Tag Team Champions in Universe Mode.
The build up towards Payback saw Big Show & Rey Mysterio continue to dominate the other teams in the tag team division, as they earned the right to once again contend for the World Tag Team Championships against the new champions Prime Time Players at Payback.
Can The Big Show & Rey Mysterio earn their Payback against the new champs, by taking their titles away from them at Payback? Or will one of the greatest teams in Universe Mode continue to reign supreme by defending their newly won World Tag Team Championships?
