    Yeah I'm very confused by this, especially since WWE had a camera at the event but decided not to use it, maybe WWE has decided to push Kofi. I mean after going to a show with Air Boom live, I can guarantee that Kofi is the much more over of the two. And he has been working hard for years and he has not gotten into any trouble in the past. And let's face the facts, WWE needs some more African American stars.

    It's not like it hasn't happened before. Now maybe they will do something with Kofi.

    Sure, but it happens so infrequently that one has to wonder if there's some deeper story behind it. Of course, it could be as simple as the WWE caring so little for the tag team division that they didn't want to waste any TV time on a title change.

    At least WWE is acknowledging this. Sometimes title changes at house shows go unrecognized, and wind up not even counting.

    If I remember right, the last time the Tag Titles changed hands at a house show was when Miz and Morrison got a hold of them. I like both teams, but I have to wonder unless something happened or WWE just felt like doing it at a house show for no reason, why not just have them drop the titles on one of the next four shows before the Rumble or at the Royal Rumble itself.

    They acknowledged when Diesel won the title from Backlund. It doesn't much and thank heaven we don't have to hear that dumb ass name Air Boom anymore.

    I didn't say they never acknowledge them, just that it happens sometimes. Actually, now that we're in the internet age, I wonder if they can really get away with doing that. It was easier years ago when things like that could happen and almost no one outside the arena would even know about it.

    Honestly, I don't think they even care.

    I suspect that it may be to increase interest in house shows. It's common knowledge that the titles never change hands at them, so this may have been done to make people think otherwise.


    That's the only explanation I can think of, since they're having the rematch on Raw tonight.

    Air Boom just didn't click for me. The name or the tag team.

    This was an odd decision, but one that's been done before. I have no reason why they chose to have Air Boom drop the title at a house show. It seems like a punishments, or a decision that had to be rushed.

    Airboom was a good and exciting tag team. Primo and Epico are boring.

    It was such an awful name man. They were a fun team, I agree.

    Breaking news: Evan Bourne suspended for 60 days for second violation of Wellness Policy.

    Well, this is just perfect. I think Air Boom should just disband if Evan Bourne is gonna be in potential danger of going to the unemployment line because of WP violations.
