Dont get me wrong, I do like the combination of "Air-Boom", I just feel that Kofi is kind of stealing the spotlight away from Evan Bourne. I remember when they won the tag team titles, and correct me if i'm wrong, but Kofi did all the talking, and Evan wasnt given the opportunity to say a single word, and it was his first title :/

But yeah back onto the topic of this combination of Justin Gabriel and Evan Bourne
I mean they both have near enough the same physique, roughly the same height, and have a similar agility and in ring style.
It's like they're a mere reflection of each other!

But these are just my thoughts
What are your opinions IWC?

Yeah I was thinking this back during NXT season 1. They both have similar high flying finishers to.

I'd of liked the flying angels more than air boom.
Although I'm not a fan of failing-pyro-man really

I think it works better as it is, Bourne isn't too strong on the mic and neither is Gabriel, so having Kofi there gives the team a good voice on the mic!!

When it comes to tag teams, I think opposites attract. In other words, have a flyer and a heavy hitter (or a technical wrestler). Although neither Kofi or Evan are heavy hitters, they still fit. But tag teams of the past have been successful due to the different styles of the partners. That's why I don't think Bourne and Gabriel belong together. Every once and while it will work (like Kendrick & London), but that's every once in a while.

Complaining that Evan didn't get to talk, that wasn't Kofi's fault. IWC favorite, Zack Ryder stole the spotlight from Evan, before he got to say anything!

I would rather see Justin Gabriel re-teamed with Heath Slater, since neither man really got anything out of their breakup.
