This bout will actually be contested on the pre-show of WrestleMania, immediately before the pay per view broadcast goes to air. While it is a sad fact that it has become common practice in recent years to relegate a previously announced bout to the pre-show, this was a more strategic move than most.

With the WWE Network just recently launching, WWE has more freedom to create original content. This year’s pre-show will be expanded to two hours, with the second hour airing exclusively on The Network.

That is where this bout will air.

There is no real story or build to this match, but rather a showcase for the burgeoning tag team scene in WWE and The Usos in particular. Jimmy and Jey Uso have been riding high since mid 2013 and have earned every opportunity they have been given. They just won the Tag Championships in early March and deserve a long and healthy title reign. The twin sons of Rikishi have been a staple on WWE television since the summer of 2010 and are a great throwback to the tag teams of old.

It also a showcase for the company’s tag team division, something that has been given much needed attention since the fall of 2012. Currently there are easily nine combinations that can be considered a true tag team unit. While this match provides for a random assortment of those teams, it is still a massive step up from the decade that preceded it.

Los Matadores are the legitimate son and nephew of 2014 WWE Hall of Fame inductee Carlos Colon. However their new characters hide their identity, and it is more than likely that any connection between Colon and The Matadors will be glossed over with a wink and a nudge on commentary.

The match is one fall to a finish, with the first man scoring a pinfall wins the Championship for his team. It should be a fun sprint of a match, but The Usos should walk away with a victory here.
