At WrestleMania XXVI, Show and Miz defeated John Morrison and R-Truth to retain the title again.At Extreme Rules ShoMiz was in a tag team gauntlet match where if ShoMiz lost, the winning tag team would get a championship match the next night on Raw for the Unified WWE Tag Team Championship. The first tag team was R-Truth and John Morrison who lost their match. Then the next tag team arrived which was Mark Henry and MVP who also lost their match. The next tag team was the Hart Dynasty (David Hart Smith and Tyson Kidd) with Natalya and Bret 'The Hitman' Hart. They won the match which gave them the title match the next night on Raw.
Big Show was drafted to Raw as a part of the 2011 WWE Draft. He and Kane then started feuding with the New Nexus. After defending the titles against CM Punk and Mason Ryan at Over the Limit, Kane and Big Show lost their titles to Michael McGilligutty and David Otunga on the following day on Raw. After the match, Show was run over by Alberto Del Rio's car, driven by his ring announcer, and was sidelined with an injury for almost a month.
