During this year’s WWE Draft, there were several tag teams split up. Those teams were Veer and Shanky, T-Bar and Mace, Natalya and Tamina, Shotzi and Tegan Nox.
Fightful Select reported today that “there were teams that actually learned on social media that they would be split up.”
It was said when people in the company pushed for several teams to remain together, they were told AJ Styles and Omos was the only team that “didn’t fall upon deaf ears.” WrestleVotes reported this a few weeks ago as Vince McMahon wanted to go through with it, but some people in WWE felt that Omos wasn’t ready just yet to be a singles star.
Per the report, there were “instances where people even asked the sense in drafting individuals instead of teams within a story perspective,” but they were told it wasn’t that important.
WWE has broken up tag teams for years and most of the time, there isn’t a storyline behind the split, but rather they break up teams just to do it.
