Welcome to the Gutt Reactions blog, a slightly skewed look back at the last week in wrestling! Warning: there be attempted humour here.
A catchy, succinct name is a must for a professional wrestling unit. Almost every successful team of the past 30 years has had a unique title that encapsulates everything about them. The Mega Powers were the two biggest stars in the business. The Four Horseman were the harbingers of doom for many a babyface back in the day. But these days, I think they've lost their way.
If you look at stable names these days, they very rarely reflect the men in the team. But don't worry! As always, I am here to shepherd my flock towards more enlighten times. So on this weeks Gutt Reactions, I will address each and every team and put things right.
Problem: They don't shield anybody from anything.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why they are the tag team champions!
