Booking SmackDown Live's Tag Division Through SummerSlam

SmackDown Live's Tag Team Division has grown a bit stale since the brand split, but not for a lack of quantity. Initially with The Uso's, American Alpha, the Headbangers, and the rise of Beauty & the Man Beast, it looked like SDLive could thrive in tag team wrestling. Add in Breezango and The Ascension and SDLive's ranks were no joke. Not to mention, Triple H was overseeing the brand, so everyone thought he would try to replicate what was successful in NXT's tag division.
Right now, we're basically just an American Alpha/Usos feud with a bunch of jabronis becoming fodder for John Cena. My mission here is to fix that.
Right now, The Uso's are your SDLive Tag Team Champions, and I won't have them dropping the belts leading into SummerSlam. In fact, I would only amplify their heel tactics in feuds with guys like the Headbangers. Yes, yes, I know... old guys. But that's the point. They're an act the crowd still gets into, and they too can be booked…
