The unthinkable

It has been almost 3 months since the WWE brand split took place and we have already tasted the fruits of this epic event in WWE. We have seen some great storylines and matches in the past three months and have every reason to expect a lot more in the coming days.

Back on 19th July 2016, the day on which the official draft took place, expectations about the future were a mix of confusion and unpredictability.

Today, we have a spectrum of things that you probably hadn’t expected on the day of the brand split to happen within 3 months of the D-day. As part of the slideshow, let us have a look at 5 things that seemed very distant immediately after the brand split and the draft but have still happened in the WWE-  

#1 The Rhyno reign

First ever SmackDown Tag Team Champs

There are instances where we see veterans coming and going in WWE but these guys getting title reigns happens only once in a blue moon. The SmackDown team had unique plans for the returning Rhyno as he was crowned the inaugural SmackDown Tag Team Champion.

Rhyno has always maintained a power-house kind of an image since his earlier days with the company and other promotions in the past. He may not have carried the same aura today to the WWE ring but he surely was a Championship material back then.

Rhyno and Heath Slater, the weirdest combination you could ever think of were made the Tag Champs, and this duo is getting along quite well having defeated the Usos at No Mercy to retain their titles. None of us would have expected things to turn out so good for someone like Rhyno.
