    The Uso's

    Felt they were probably worth putting together. I don't know about you, but they are one of a small number tag teams who, when I watch, I don't even both trying to distinguish - they are just so similar as workers and totally in synch.

    I think they have a strong claim to being the best tag team of the past decade. A bunch of great matches against established teams in The New Day an The Bar, but also much less experienced teams like American Alpha and Cesaro/Kidd. Their matches with Slater and Rhyno are also a great showcase of them carrying an over but limited pair of guys to some really fun matches.

    They are good examples of guys who are "fliers" without every feeling like spot workers, can go in brawls, work in a bunch of typical wrestling Samoan tropes without it feeling dated, and have been really strong as both babyfaces and heels.

    They are both locks for me.

    Totally agree, can’t see a way for me not to include the tag team of the decade. Would love to see some fresh opponents for them in the new year like revival, sanity, Roode and gable etc.

    Re: The Uso's

    Yeah easy choices for the list. Great wrestlers, loads of good matchea, good on TV and ppv. I think they're low end candidates because I don't think they have many matches that I think are truly great, but they are well worth a spot

    Re: The Uso's

    Can't disagree with anything already said. They have become the team in the WWE during this time period and even a poor 2019 won't take away from them being the team for me.
    I have a plan so cunning......

    They’ve come along way since 2010 when they were up for worst tag team of the year

I can honestly say that I have never had anything I would call a bad blowjob, that wasn't a great experience but up until I started gushing blood I was having a great time!

    What's not to get? They were awesome in the Roman feud against AJ and when they did start to get boring they completely reinvented themselves after turning heel. Their feud and matches against The New Day in 2017 were all really good. Their matches against American Alpha were great. They even got a good match out of Heath Slater and Rhyno. Their matches against the Bar were all great, especially their Survivor Series match last year. Their character work since turning heel has been fantastic. I didn't think they would ever change but they definitely proved me wrong.


    The only time WWE came close to a good story line post Attitude Era was Undertaker/Mordecai - Dakstang

    These guys are awesome, it'll be hard to keep them out of the top 50. I do think it's interesting that they teased something with Jimmy & Naomi, if they were to hypothetically give them a singles run of some sort, it could be a long year in 2019.

    I expect they might calm down on that after the poor MMC numbers, might not be a season 3, not much reason to split Jimmy's focus between his brother and his wife.

    Re: The Uso's

    Giving this a bump to say the Uso's were awesome last night, even when lumbered with WWE goofball comedy. The tag against Bryan & Rowan was awesome and hurt only by the cut-aways. Hopefully they get a rematch with more time, could be a total barn-burner.

    Re: The Uso's

    Last nights match was an even better version of their SD match. Hope there's more from them even if it comes at the expense of bizarre wildcard booking with Usos on Raw.

    Having good matches is one thing. Having great matches is another. Dont get me wrong i have seen good matches from them. But these guys can't touch the Bucks or the Briscoes. Id say they cant touch DIY or Kyle and Roddy either.

    Re: The Uso's

    The Rock and Roll Express did actually get an interesting and good match out of the Briscoes last month, but unfortunately those guys have been spinning their wheels for years now. AEW understandably don't want to touch them, but they really could of used a fresh scene.
