Oct. 28, 2005 - Dec. 16, 2005

After losing the WWE Tag Team Championship to L.O.D. at the Great American Bash, MNM tried many times to recapture the gold, but were turned back at every venture.

Finally, on the Oct. 28 edition of SmackDown, MNM was able to climb back to the top by winning a Fatal Fourway Match that also included The Mexicools and William Regal & Paul Burchill. A momentary distraction allowed Nitro & Mercury to hit the Snapshot on Heidenreich, and three seconds later, MNM had begun their second reign as champions.
