We are back with another episode of Saturday Morning Slam.
Before our first match, we take a look at the participants in the match.
First, we look at the Prime Time Players of Darren Young and Titus O’Neil. They have found success since forming their team. They might not be favorites of the WWE Universe.
Next, we look at Brodus Clay and Kofi Kingston. They are solid as singles wrestlers, but will they gel as a tag team?
Before we get to the match, Titus has to blow his whistle and he throws a flag for the WWE Universe. He calls a personal foul for not acknowledging them as the most entertaining and dominating tag team in the company. Darren agrees with Titus and he tells him that is all he has. Titus says that they compete against the sideline players when they are the Prime Time Players. They are asked to pose with the children but they don’t have time for that. They will prove why they are worth Millions of Dollars. They do the Millions of Dollars dance until . . .
