WINNERS: Sami Zayn and Adam Rose via Pinfall
The tag team tournament is off to a great start with two well worked matches. Enzo Amore and Collin Cassady are very over right now and rightfully so. They have huge charismas and definitely work as "tweeners". Jordan and Dillinger are both good workers and were easily the more talented wrestlers in tonight's match, but they don't have the "it factor" that Amore and Cassady deliver.
Zayn and Rose worked surprisingly well together. Its strange seeing them team up, but their match was enjoyable to watch. Kidd and Gabriel continued their losing streaks, and its hard to figure out what they are trying to do with them. I'd like to see Gabriel and Kidd as a tag-team on the main roster. They have a very entertaining style and never fail to deliver a quality match. In my opinion, the are better as a team than as singles competitors and can bring another serious player to the main roster tag division.
