They’re already done? WWE has a weird history with tag teams, as they have presented several different teams over the years but a good many of them have split up. The company has a fascination with putting two people together for the sake of splitting them up again for a feud of some kind. That might be the case again, even though the team was not together that long in the first place.
This week on SmackDown, Ricochet beat Sheamus in the show’s opening match. Sheamus lost the match after a failed distraction from his protege and tag partner, Ridge Holland. Following the match, Sheamus shoved Holland down before leaving on his own. While not confirmed, this could suggest that the two are on their way to splitting up. Holland has been Sheamus’ protege since he debuted on SmackDown in the fall of last year.
Opinion: I hope WWE doesn’t go with this so soon as it isn’t like Sheamus and Holland have some kind of a long history together. Maybe WWE just wants Holland on his own sooner rather than later, but this is a fast turnaround even for them. Holland beating Sheamus would feel like a nice moment for him, but it isn’t like there is likely going to be some big, career making story from the whole thing. Just let something go on for a bit for once. It shouldn’t be that much to ask.
What do you think of the split? Are Sheamus and Holland better together or apart? Let us know in the comments below.
