Jim Cornette appeared on Busted Open Radio recently and commented on how tag teams are used by WWE in comparison to singles stars. Check out highlights and audio below.
“Tag teams are not featured in the WWE on the same level as the top, main event, single stars and therefore, people get the perception that it’s something that’s to be seen on the middle of the card. Then when their in another world, in another environment, watching another company and tag teams are featured just as importantly as the top single stars, then it’s a better environment. And even subconsciously, you can see someone featured in a certain spot one place and go, ‘Okay, that’s where there supposed to be.’ But when it’s a completely fresh environment with completely different logic of their universe, well of course they can be main event guys if they can perform and carry the ball"
