In 2010, the tag team division in World Wrestling Entertainment was far from great, but it did tout two bright young teams with tremendous potential.
The Hart Dynasty consisted of David Hart Smith, Tyson Kidd and Natalya. Smith was the son of the legendary British Bulldog, Kidd was a graduate of the Hart Dungeon in Calgary and Natalya was the daughter of tag team great Jim Neidhart.
Together, they were coming off a WrestleMania moment in which they assisted Bret Hart defeat Mr. McMahon in a street fight.
Their opponents at Money in the Bank were the Usos, a freshly debuted tandem of twins. The sons of longtime WWE star Rikishi, the brothers had a championship bloodline, and with Tamina by their sides, they had the opportunity to knock off the WWE Tag Team champions.
The teams provided an example of what tag team wrestling in WWE could be when talented workers are paired together and given time to craft a quality wrestling match. The Usos were still incredibly raw performers and nowhere near the level that they are now, but as the straight heels, they complimented the style of the champions well.
Kidd and Smith scored the win and continued their reign until being unseated by Drew McIntyre and Cody Rhodes in September.
