Team D-Z made their tag team debut, as well as this being Bryan's debut, on the April 23rd 2012 edition of Raw, the team lost to the combination of Justin Gabriel & Tyson Kidd, who were also a newly debuting tag team.

They would then also defend their championships against John Morrison & Joey Mercury at Money in the Bank.

The two had a rematch at Bragging Rights, with Team D-Z winning the World Tag Team Championship.
