Cool WWE Tag Team Championship - Money in the Bank, could it work?


----------------------------------------------------------------------------

That's right people I'm proposing an idea and that idea is Money in the Bank for the WWE Tag Team Championship! Now, I know what some of you will be thinking, that this will take away from the other Money in the Bank briefcases and that maybe the tag team division isn't high profile enough to handle it. But I'm here to tell you it can handle it.

For the first time in a long time, the tag team division of the WWE is starting to come together. We've seen legitimate tag teams really come together, some I personally like, some I don't. But I have to admit, the success is really starting to form and you can't deny it.

So here's my idea, new match for the Money in the Bank PPV. 4 teams go at it for the briefcase, only one member of the team needs to retrieve it. Can you imagine it? Tag team moves with ladders, there'll be some great spots. Personally I think this could only make the championships look even stronger. By having a MitB briefcase for the tag team championship, it'll make it look like a high prize, something to really work for.

Also, think about the Raws and Smackdowns after, if a heel team wins it, they can distract the ref, throw it in during the confusion and use it to gain heat.

Let's not go overboard though, I'm only suggesting this for the tag team titles, I don't think having a MitB for any other title would work, but in this case it would be fun, different and just great to watch.

This, in my opinion, can only benefit the division, I hope somewhere down the line the WWE pick up this idea, I'd love to see it happen. What do you guys think? Answer my poll and leave a reply.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I thought the briefcase could be orange. I think it works quite well, hope you like the pic.

4 way tag team ladder matches have been done before, it wouldn't be revolutionary.

And money in the bank should be saved for the world titles or some sort of special stipulation in my opinion.

Honestly, I like the idea. It's innovative and definitely would boost the importance of the tag team division during a time where people use tag team matches as a piss break as much as they do the diva matches. It'll boost the credibility of the title as well as the Tag Team MiTB match will show that the four teams in the ring want to be tag team champions. The tag division has more than enough teams (Team Hell No, The Usos, Primo and Epico, Prime Time Players, Rhodes Scholars [inactive], Team Co-Bro, International Air Raid, Mysterio and Sin Cara, and 3MB) to run something like this. I think it would be really fun to see.

I think this could definitely work. There are a lot of teams now, so we would probably even see qualifying matches for the mitb. I think this could elevate the division even further if they are trying t revamp it, because having a mitb match for the tag titles would put the tag division close to the same level as the main event titles. I also think that the ideas for a tag team cash in would be awesome. 4 teams would have to be the ideal number though, because a mitb with any more people than 8 is just too much. This is a really good idea though, and would help the tag division even more.

I can't quite say I support the idea. However, before I get into my response, I do like the graphic quoted here. This would make a very cool looking briefcase if the idea were to be put into place. I like it and it would fit in well with the red & blue briefcases already in use. I also would have liked a green one.

The Money In the Bank Ladder matches are dangerous enough as it is, if tag team alliances are thrown into the equation it can make for an even more dangerous match. I'm certain it would also be a massive cluster-mess to book it. The risks of injury would be significantly higher and I do not see WWE wanting to take such a risk anytime soon. That's just regarding the match where the briefcase would be won, there are other issues that would follow.

WWE obviously pick their Money In the Bank winners very carefully. We do not want a repeat of the situation with Kennedy in 2007. Someone who will be given a push at the magnitude of a MITB win and eventual cash-in needs to be a wrestler who they can fully trust to not make them regret pushing him. It's difficult enough to find two per year that can be trusted with the push, but now a tag team also? What if one half of the team gets injured or ends up with a suspension? There's just far too many risks involved for WWE to go this route.

If for whatever reason this ever did happen, I can still look at in a positive light. It would be something different that hasn't been done before. It also sets up a great opportunity for a feud between the two champions when one inevitably turns on the other. Also they could tease some tension early on, say if one wrestler wanted to save the cash-in until Wrestlemania or a full year later at the next Money In the Bank while the other wants to be opportunistic and cash in immediately when a chance comes up. Although I don't quite support a Tag Team Money In the Bank briefcase angle, I'd be interested in seeing what happens if it ever did get booked.

I either read something about this idea earlier, or I talked about it with somebody. Either way, I think this idea would be pretty awesome. The tag team division is as hot as its been in years, and now would be the perfect time to capitalize on such an idea. It would be absolutely awesome to have the Usos, Primo and Epico, the Prime Time Players, and other teams in a MITB ladder match. Having more than two teams in a ladder match would be nothing revolutionary, but it would still be loads of fun to watch.

Well, of course it would work. You hang the briefcase (or briefcases) above the ring, throw a bunch of tag teams into a MITB match, and someone's going to win. It's not a question of whether the idea would work or not, the big question is, who would care?

There's a reason why the MITB briefcases are exclusive to the WWE and World Heavyweight Championships. World titles are the holy grail in professional wrestling. It's why every wrestler in locker room laces up the boots in the first place. That's why there's so much buzz and anticipation surrounding the Smackdown or Raw MITB winner. The vast majority of fans want to see the moment, when they finally decide to cash-in, because they're going after a the grand prize in professional wrestling.

Think of the shock and excitement, when Edge cashed in on Cena at New Year's Revolution, When Miz cashed-in on Orton a few years ago. Can you seriously imagine fans getting excited, when they see the Prime Time Players running down the entrance ramp with a ref to cash-in on the current champions?

A tag team style MITB match would be fun to watch, and we'll see plenty of "OMG!" moments (probably something like Sheamus powerboming Sin Cara through a ladder a few years ago), but in the grand scheme of things, I honestly can't see too many people caring about tag team MITB winners.

I really like the whole concept (small golf clap).

My only problem is that this seems like way too good of an idea to wast on teams like the Usos, 3MB, CoBro, Epico & Primo, & PTP. Also Rhodes is injured & the clock is ticking on Team Hell No.

Maybe International Airstrike, ReyCara, Team Hell No, Rhode Scholars, & add one team of Main Event level talent.

Really like the idea but if they were going to do it they would have to eliminate one of the other two because they cant have 3 ladder matches in one night it would just get repetitive. If they went back to having one "main" briefcase where the fans dont know exactly what title they're going for then i think they can do a tag team one as well. Only problem is people will complain if the guy holding the main briefcase cashes in for the WHC because the WWE is clearly promoting it as a secondary title.

Guess I was wrong but in the past I could of sworn the wording in the Money In the Bank Matches was just that the MITB could be used for a title shot at ANY title...obviously they are going to go for the top title, but the idea still stands a person could use it for the tag titles too..but I could be wrong here.

If I am wrong, sure sounds like a cool idea but again, it would surely cheapen the value of the Money in the Bank for the Heavyweight titles..but heres a though

A Money in the Bank Scramble. Have two people representing two seperate teams, and 3 mean all representing seperate divisions of the rosters, a lightweight, heavyweight, and sueprheavyweight. Have them all work for the MITB. iF ONE OF THE MEN REPRESENTING their tag team gets it, a tag team title shot anytime within a year is granted, if one of the 3 singles men wins it, any singles title shot within a year. Just an idea.
