Tyson Kidd & Cesaro’s WWE Tag Team Championship reign may be less than a month old — fact — but in a division packed with worthy contenders, the new champions must defend the titles against The New Day's Big E & Kofi Kingston, Los Matadores and former two-time champions The Usos in a Fatal 4-Way on the WrestleMania Kickoff.
Sunday’s WrestleMania Kickoff is a special two-hour event that begins at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT, immediately before The Showcase of the Immortals goes on air. The first hour will be available on WWE Network, as well as stream live and for free on WWE.com, the WWE App, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ and Pheed. The second hour of the Kickoff will be shown exclusively on WWE Network.
Since winning the tandem titles, Kidd & Cesaro have maintained that any team that believes they deserve a title opportunity at WrestleMania must first prove it. With all three duos making their championship ambitions crystal clear in recent weeks, Los Matadores, The New Day and The Usos set about backing up their demands.
Since then, the division has been marked by great parity and competition, with Diego & Fernando upending The Usos, and The New Day at one point scoring a non-title win over Cesaro & Kidd. The action has grown so intense that it even threatened to claim one Superstar when, during an Eight-Man Tag Team Match featuring all four tandems, The New Day’s Xavier Woods accidentally drilled Jey Uso with a dive, injuring Uso’s shoulder in the process. Luckily for the popular former champions, WWE’s medical staff has cleared Uso for competition, just in time for WrestleMania.
