There's no competition for Lord Tensai. He demands Laurinaitis find competition. Later in the show, Brodus Clay approaches Tensai and calls him out on his new gimmick, fondly remembering his A-Train days and asking what the hell happened in Japan. "I know they hit harder in Japan, but DAMN, brotha! They must've knocked you silly! Lord Tensai my funky ass!"
Tensai says he's not insane, he's just paying homage to Japan. And speaking of looney, he wants to know what the hell a Funkasaurus is. Tensai says if anyone is off their rocker, it's Brodus.
Laurinaitis walks in and has a great idea. A match with a five minute time limit to see who the tougher man is! Brodus Clay vs. Lord Tensai!
The match is a total comedy routine on Brodus's behalf. He'll do a dance and "pass it" onto Tensai, who stares at him with no expression and then clotheslines him. The match is a dead heat. They're one for one. This begins to upset Brodus. If he hits his suplex, Tensai no sells and returns the favor with a suplex of his own. The timer buzzes. Neither man is victorious.
RAW, Week 2
Tensai has asked for another match against Brodus, vowing to defeat him before the timer goes off. Brodus is all business this time. The match is another dead heat. The timer runs to zero.
RAW, Week 3
Primo and Epico cut a promo about how they're untouchable as a tag team. They issue an open challenge. Backstage, Tyson Kidd says he would accept if Justin Gabriel wasn't out with an injury. The camera skips to Brodus Clay, except he's not in his typical funky getup. He's wearing a spiked leather jacket. In his hand, he carries another jacket. He kicks down the door of Lord Tensai's dressing room. Tensai leaps to his feet, expecting to be attacked. In the background, Primo and Epico are on the TV still talking.
Brodus hands Tensai the jacket. Tensai puts it on. They walk to the ring sans music. Primo and Epico look like they're about to **** their pants. Justin Roberts announces Brodus Clay and Lord Tensai, but Tensai whispers in his ear and Roberts apologizes, "Brodus Clay and A-Traaaain!"
Within 30 seconds, the match is over and there are new tag team champions in Brodus and A-Train.
RAW, Week 4
Brodus and A-Train grant a rematch against Primo and Epico. The match is over before it begins. Brodus asks John Laurinaitis to cook up some REAL tag team competition.
RAW, Week 5
Brodus and A-Train find themselves wrestling a series of jobber tag teams in a gauntlet match. They're insulted. Things get tense backstage when Brodus and A-Train corner Johnny in the locker room and demand competition. Laurinaitis says he'll make a few calls.
Later in the show, Laurinaitis says a member of the current roster has recommended a free agent and the contract has been faxed to him. He'll be at the pay per view.
Pay Per View
Brodus and A-Train are in the ring awaiting their opponents. Mark Henry's theme hits and Brodus and A-Train smile. Finally, competition! Henry gets down to the ring and points to the ramp.
Laurinaitis comes out and introduces Henry and Big Daddy V as "The Natural Disasters." This match is a NO DQ MATCH for the Tag Team Titles! The Natural Disasters win when Mark Henry hits the World's Strongest Slam on Brodus and Big Daddy V follows up with a huge splash. Before A-Train can break the count, Henry takes him down with a clothesline.
The feud between the Natural Disasters and Brodus and A-Train gets a little stale. One evening, during a tag match on RAW (live in Philly), Teddy Long walks out on the ramp. The fans seem confused, since he hasn't been seen since Wrestlemania 28. The match stops as Teddy speaks:
"Long before I was the longest running Smackdown manager in WWE history, I was a manager of a different sort. I managed tag teams. A few weeks ago, I was watching RAW and I decided I'd been gone LONG ENOUGH! Not only is it time for Teddy Long to return to the WWE, but it's time for Teddy Long to return to his roots! I've combed the country looking for a suitable tag team to introduce to the WWE Universe, and I've found one! Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to ..."
The Briscoe Brothers hit the ramp and storm the ring, causing the match to end in a disqualification. All hell breaks loose. Referees can't get this thing under control and then ...
Kofi and Bourne storm the ring and fly around with the Briscoe Brothers for a moment or two, before the Natural Disasters and Brodus and A-Train destroy them.
Laurinaitis comes to the ring and announces a big time TLC Match at the next PPV for the Tag Team Titles!!
Altitude ERa (formerly Air Boom) vs. Natural Disasters vs. Briscoe Brothers vs. Brodus and A-Train
The WWE fans are properly introduced to the Briscoe Brothers. The storyline painted for the TLC match is this: Two high flying teams comprised of lunatics who will do anything challenging two teams comprised of absolute monsters. Confrontations are aplenty in the build up. The Natural Disasters and Brodus and A-Train laugh at the size of their challengers. The general consensus is that Altitude Era and Briscoe Brothers will be taken out very quickly and the other teams will be left.
There will be a few tag team matches, Brodus and A-Train vs. Altitude Era / Natural Disasters vs. Brisoce Bros, Briscoe Bros vs. Altitude Era, etc.
Going into the PPV, it will become clear that Briscoe Bros and Altitude Era do not stand a CHANCE.
The TLC match proves everyone wrong: Altitude Era and Briscoe Bros are able to bring it in the TLC match due to some crafty partnerships and use of ladders and chairs. The odds just might be even for this big match for the tag team titles.
As the match winds down, it's very clear that the Briscoe Brothers are the ones who just might do the unthinkable and win the match!
Every other team has been taken down due to some huge ariel moves on behalf of Altitude Era and The Briscoe Brothers. As the Briscoe Bros try to recover from the beatdown and set up a ladder, the lights go out and ...
The Dudley Boyz run to the ring, but Bubba stops short and puts a hurtin' on A-Train outside. D'Von enters the ring. Jay Briscoe leaps onto the top rope, but D'Von shoves him off. Bubba, from the outside, leaps up and catches him with a 3D through a table!!
Bubba enters the ring. Mark Briscoe charges at D'Von. D'Von catches him! BAM! Bubba hits the 3D through another table. The crowd is ****ting - and hard. Bubba shoves D'Von
"D'VON! CLIMB THE LADDER!!"
Bubba and D'Von climb the ladder and snatch the tag team titles!
At this point, I'd break up Brodus and A-Train, because honestly, I don't see them being a long term tag team. As for the Natural Disasters, they'd still be around, but the feature of the division would be the Altitude Era, The Briscoe Brothers, and The Dudley Boyz.
The Dudleyz would hold the titles for a very long time, beating all challengers before finally putting over the Altitude Era, which would then allow them to feud with the Briscoe Brothers for the titles.
If the Motor City Machine Guns are still around, I'd try and sign them to a deal too.
