Over the past few years, there has been a lot of criticism on Vince McMahon for how the tag team division has been managed. Despite having some of the best couples around, just think of the New Day or the Usos, fans and insiders argue that the Stamford federation does not value these guys enough.
Former WWE superstar Tucker, a victim of the recent spate of releases, has long been a member of 'Heavy Machinery' In his judgment, the company believes the tag team division cannot attract money. An explanation that was often brought up to justify Vince McMahon's attitude.
Tucker has shared a heartfelt message on social media
“I have no idea why the tag team division is being mistreated” - Tucker began. “Based on my point of view alone, Vince McMahon believes that this division is not capable of attracting money.
This seems to be the reason for taking a look at how couple matches are treated. Even when a super exciting story is involved, it can hardly get more than twenty minutes. Athletes can never perform for forty minutes, as they often deserve.
Money in the Bank is one of the main attractions of the company, as well as being a gimmick that has been enormously successful. It is a ticket to the world title, there are very few superstars who have cashed it without success.
It is usually used to allow an athlete to explode permanently. It would be nice if one day they used this vehicle for tag team belts, but I don't think that will ever happen” - he continued. Tucker also commented on his farewell to WWE: “I want to thank all the men and women who have made my time in WWE an enjoyable experience.
I have met a lot of very talented people who are destined to do great things. I have learned a lot and I can only wish you the best. My thanks go to the management for the opportunity that was granted to me, even if we have not always agreed on everything."
Tucker has shared a heartfelt message on social media following a weekend of reflection in the wake of his WWE release. “I’ve had a chance over these last few days to do some reflecting so I want to take this time to say thank you.
Thank you to all of the men and women who made my time in WWE a more enjoyable experience, the men and women of the locker room. So many incredibly talented individuals doing so many great things. I learned so much from you guys, and I appreciate it.
The men and women in the production side, behind the cameras, and the lights and the microphones and setting up and tearing down the rings, and the monitors. We truly would not have a show and it wouldn’t even be an ounce of what it is without all the time, effort, and dedication that you guys put in week in and week out behind the scenes. I learned a lot from you as well, so thank you."
