Tyson Kidd and Cesaro are a professional wrestling tag team who are currently signed to WWE where they are former WWE Tag Team Champions. They formed a tag team in December 2014, and are accompanied to the ring by Natalya, Kidd's real-life wife. While the team has no official name, they have unofficially been called the "Masters of the WWE Universe",[5] a reference to the Masters of the Universe franchise, and the "Brass Ring Club", a reference to the Japanese wrestling stable Bullet Club as well as a criticism of Cesaro from WWE chairman Vince McMahon.[6]

Kidd and Cesaro first teamed on December 1, 2014, when they were eliminated from a gauntlet match for a shot at the tag team titles by The Usos.[7] In January 2015, Kidd formed an official alliance with Cesaro. The pair dubbed themselves "The Brass Ring Club" and proceeded to pick up multiple wins over Los Matadores, as well as allying with Adam Rose to feud with The New Day. At the Royal Rumble, Kidd and Cesaro defeated New Day members Big E and Kofi Kingston, before entering the Royal Rumble match at #12 (Kidd) and #28 (Cesaro) and being eliminated by Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler respectively.[8]

At Fastlane on February 22, Kidd and Cesaro defeated The Usos to capture the WWE Tag Team Championship, a title Kidd had not held for nearly 5 years.[9] They retained their title in a rematch the following night on Raw after Natalya caused a disqualification, cementing her villainous turn in solidarity with the duo.[10] On the WrestleMania 31 pre-show, Kidd and Cesaro retained their title by defeating The Usos, Los Matadores and The New Day in a Fatal-4-Way tag team match. At Extreme Rules,[11] Kidd and Cesaro lost their titles to rivals; The New Day when Kofi Kingston held onto Cesaro's tights for the pin, ending their reign at 63 days. After The New Day turned heel, Cesaro and Kidd became faces for the first time as a tag team (also marking Cesaro's first true face turn in the WWE). On the May 4th episode of Raw, Cesaro and Kidd defeated The Ascension after Kidd drop kicked Viktor while Cesaro was performing his Cesaro Swing. Afterwards, they had a confrontation with The New Day backstage, leading the fans in chanting "New Day sucks" to The New Day's trademark clapping. At Payback, Kidd and Cesaro challenged The New Day for the WWE Tag Team Championships in a two out of three falls match. The duo scored the first fall of the match, but ultimately lost the second and third falls (the third fall being made by Xavier Woods, who wasn't one of the legal participants in the match), failing to recapture the titles. It was announced Kidd and Cesaro would take part in a six team elimination chamber match for the Tag Titles At Elimination Chamber on May 31st, at the event they failed to win the titles. On June 7, WWE announced that Kidd had suffered a neck/spinal injury during a dark match with Samoa Joe a week prior and would be out of action for over a year, ending the team.[12]
