Sami Zayn Feels Main-Eventing WWE WrestleMania Elevated The Tag Team Titles

Night one of WrestleMania 39 was headlined by Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and The Usos, with the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship on the line. With the story they were able to tell, let alone the competitors involved, Zayn believes those titles have now been elevated.

"You've never actually seen a tag team title match main event WrestleMania. It's unheard of," he told Alex McCarthy of Inside the Ropes. "You know, the tag team titles have always sort of been in the background. And that's a testament to The Usos and The Bloodline and the whole story, how they've elevated those titles."

Recently, Owens and Zayn retained their titles in a WrestleMania 39 rematch during the April 28 episode of "SmackDown." For the better part of a year, ranging from Zayn's spell as 'Honorary Uce' to K.O.'s repeated failed attempts to dethrone Roman Reigns, they've been entrenched in Bloodline matters. Yet despite losing to The Usos and Solo Sikoa in a six-man tag team match alongside Matt Riddle at Backlash on May 6, it appears they are done with Jimmy and Jey. At least on a weekly basis, as they've officially been drafted to different shows.

Owens and Zayn's historic night aside, a tag team match did headline "The Showcase of the Immortals" once before, that is the first-ever WrestleMania in the company's history. Though, it feels safe to say the stakes that night were somewhat lower. Hulk Hogan teamed up with Mr. T to defeat Paul Orndorff and "Rowdy" Roddy Piper with Pat Patterson serving as special guest referee while Muhammad Ali played the role of special enforcer. But at WrestleMania 39, the tag team titles finally got their moment in the sun.
