Cesaro and Kidd had a match against John Cena and Daniel Bryan. It was billed throughout the show as some sort of epic clash – the Tag champs against the United States and Intercontinental champions – but was there ever any doubt as to how the match was going to turn out? We all knew Cena and Bryan were going to win and so they did. However, Cesaro and Kidd still persevered through the match, which was a good one. I mean, of course it was, given who was in it, and the foregone conclusion didn't detract from it too much. It was irritating that the show ended with Cena and Bryan both being declared “ready” for their respective opponents at Extreme Rules, while the Tag champs were...just there, I guess. There was really nothing at stake for Cesaro and Kidd, other than cementing the idea that no one in charge actually cares about the Tag division. If you're going to spend the whole show acting like all members of a match are equal champions, you'd better treat them like that during and after the match as well. And then there were poor Natalya's continued valiant efforts to be a part of her team: being just a little too late joining in on the “fact”s, not having a microphone with which to inform Cena and Bryan that the match was on, distracting Bryan and accidentally getting hit by Kidd, caught by Cesaro (I cheered at that part. No shame.),and promptly dumped on the ground when her saviour tried to get back into the match.
