Did you watch them in NXT Russ? Or are you just basing your opinion based on what they've done on the main roster?

Well the OMG moment winner this year is going to be them winning a match LOL

Daniel Bryan did a great job on Talking Smack of rating them highly, bringing up how long he's known them for, their NXT history etc.

Probably be back to jobbing in a month or so, but we will see.

2 year bump, that shows how irrelevant they've been LOL

Was very strange to see them given the rub, however there's an opening for the #2 heel team behind The Usos and someone needs to fill it.

They'll probably make the final two at EC now just to make us all think "what the hell has been happening with these guys for so long"

Never thought "The Ascension wins" would be a phrase I'd ever hear again.

They had a strong showing during the Tag Team EC in 2015, eliminating the Los Matadores and Lucha Dragons, but it didn't really matter since they disappeared back into obscurity immediately afterwards. I do agree that its a good possibility that the Ascension makes the final two, not without eliminating a team or 2. Hell, if they want to make them a legit threat, have them just run the gauntlet.

EDIT: I'll just edit this instead of making another post.

So yeah, that win was rather short lived. The Usos practically handed them the titles on a silver platter, but instead they were made to look like chumps, not being able to put away AA. If there was any glimmer of hope for these guys, its gone. Shame, really...

Already after 2-3 weeks they look like heading back out of relevance LOL

They lost too easily and it doesn't make sense when the brand has so few strong teams and needs some built up.

Maybe they will stand more of a chance if the gimmick was dropped?

Maybe so, but it'll be hard to change them from the Ascension. What they could do with is someone becoming a leader for them and then give them a slow build but that seems very unlikely to happen.

The Elimination Chamber was the ideal opportunity to have them win the titles and get a renewed push to try and establish them as the force they should be on the tag-team roster. It would have protected American Alpha as well who would have gone down fighting after a gauntlet match and absorbing a beating from the Usos.

Sadly that didn't happen and now after loss to AA on Smackdown the Ascension are right back to being a jobber team that you know are going to lose 99% of their matches.

NXT teams have been very hit and miss on the main roster so far, the Ascension and VauldeVillains can both be seen as flops who could easily be released in the next twelve months.
