The best tag team in WWE is Tyson Kidd & Cesaro … FACT! The WWE Tag Team Champions retained their titles in front of an electrified capacity crowd at Levi’s® Stadium after overcoming The Usos, Los Matadores and The New Day’s Big E & Kof Kingston in a high-flying Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Championship clash during the WrestleMania Kickoff.
WWE’s tag team division didn’t disappoint on The Grandest Stage of Them All, kicking off the biggest event in sports-entertainment with an instant classic. The single pinfall contest began with The Swiss Superman and The Dreadlocked Dynamo squaring off, but it didn’t take long for things to quickly spiral out of control after Los Matadores’ Diego tagged himself in. This prompted Cesaro to take his frustration out on Jey Uso, sending the Samoan Superstar over the announce table and onto his previously injured shoulder. Despite his brother being helped off to the locker room just seconds into the matchup, Jimmy stood strong, immediately taking out the competition with a series of superkicks.
The action continued fast and furious, with Superstars tagging themselves in at a rapid rate. But then the battle moved to the outside floor, where the wily Kidd used his wife for protection before El Torito and Naomi launched themselves into the chaos.
The referee had his hands full keeping track of who was legal in the contest, as bodies flew around the ring at a fevered pace. Eventually, Cesaro and Big E showed off their strength in an “OMG” moment, bringing the WWE Universe to its feet as they hoisted Diego & Fernando onto their shoulders while the masked luchadors superplexed Kingston and Kidd to the mat below.
Attempting to take advantage of the chaos below, Jimmy Uso hit a top-rope Splash onto a fallen Big E, only to get tossed from the ring by the legal man, Cesaro. A replay showed The Swiss Superstar had shrewdly tagged himself in before Jey left the top rope, allowing him to secure the pinfall victory and keep the WWE Tag Team Championship around himself and Kidd.
The ”fact-droppers” had talked a big game leading up to The Showcase of Immortals, but like all great WWE champions, they backed it up inside the ring. Now that the Kidd & Cesaro have a victory under their belts on The Grandest Stage of Them All, what’s next?
