SummerSlam Preview: WWE Tag Team Title Match
Published by: · Date: 2015/08/18 · Filed Under: Match Preview, PPV

Presiding over a division marked by great parity, WWE Tag Team Champions The Prime Time Players get set to battle The New Day, The Lucha Dragons and Los Matadores in a Fatal 4-Way Match at SummerSlam.

Diego & Fernando first upended Titus O’Neil & Darren Young in a non-title match on the July 20 edition of Raw, thanks partly to a distraction by Big E, Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods. Since then, The Lucha Dragons have been able to notch a win over Los Matadores, as have The New Day, underscoring the competitiveness in the tag ranks.

Which duo will assert itself as WWE’s premier team at The Biggest Party of the Summer?

Can O’Neil & Young’s well-meshed combination of strength and precision help them extend their golden reign? Will the presence of a third man at ringside for The New Day ensure their victory and, in turn, a second run with the WWE Tag Team Championship? Or will the mesmerizing speed, polished teamwork or awe-inspiring agility of either The Lucha Dragons or Los Matadores net one of those teams its first tag title?

Don’t blink when these four teams lock up in what is sure to be a fast-paced and exciting championship match at SummerSlam. Watch WWE’s summer spectacular live, only on the award-winning WWE Network, on Sunday, Aug. 23, at 7 ET/4 PT.

WWE’s 8 Most Underrated Superstars & Divas
Published by: · Date: 2015/07/21 · Filed Under: Articles, WWE.Com

WWE recently published an article entitled 8 Most Underrated Superstars & Divas. In the article, WWE.com editors write about 8 Superstars/Divas and Tag Teams who they believe are underrated and should be kept an eye on. Kalisto and Sin Cara were listed as the Lucha Dragons:

There will never be another Rey Mysterio, but if you’re looking for an heir apparent to The Ultimate Underdog, these human ping-pong balls from NXT are a good place to start. Formed in Full Sail University after the dynamic Kalisto united with incumbent luchador Sin Cara, The Lucha Dragons instantly cemented themselves as show-stealing attractions who could back up their bravura, knocking off The Ascension’s herculean NXT Tag Team Title reign.

The fireworks continued when the Dragons appeared together on the main roster for the first time on March 30, but they haven’t been in the mix as much as you might expect since that night, as The New Day commandeered the WWE Tag Team Title picture almost instantly. However, like any good dragons, don’t expect them to be kept down for long. — ANTHONY BENGINO
