While talking about the historical significance of the tag team titles being in the main event Triple H added, “People saying, ‘Tag team championships haven’t been in that spot. History making.’ I didn’t even know that, to be honest with you. Talent are talent, nothing else to it. Whatever storyline is resonating the most and has the most impact, that needs to be the story that’s told. In this case, it was the Usos, Kevin, and Sami.”
