Wrestlemania XXVII Preview: The Corre Unite For Eight-Man Tag Team Action

The Corre, Wade Barrett's latest faction, had set their sights on two of Smackdown's biggest superstars. . .both literally and figuratively. . .in Kane and The Big Show. One of their assaults on the monstrous duo saw the quartet put The Big Show through an announcing table and attacking Kane with the steel ring steps. When the WWE Tag Team champions, current Corre members Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater, attempted to do the same to former tag team champions Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov, they might have succeeded. . .if it hadn't been for The Big Show and Kane charging the ring to stop the beatdown from taking place.

Now, the Corre. . .featuring the Intercontinental Champion in Barrett, the tag team champions in Slater and Gabriel, and the powerful Ezekiel Jackson, will take on this mishmash of superstars. It was learned today, however, that The Corre had attacked Kozlov at WWE Fan Axxess this afternoon in Atlanta, and the high-flying Kofi Kingston will replace him in this match.

While Santino may be my favorite overall WWE character right now. . .and you have to give it to the guy, his interviews are great, and he's gone from being an average worker to a pretty darn good one while still retaining his sense of humor. . .if The Corre are going to attempt to continue establishing themselves as a dominant faction, they need a victory over a team with the star power of The Big Show, Kane, and Kingston.

Prediction: The Corre walks out of this one with a victory in what could be a pretty decent match.
