History has been made! Titles are the main focal point of almost any wrestling company as they are such an easy concept to present. Wrestlers are going to go after championships for the sake of either money, pride or power, making them the most valuable prize in the promotion. That makes title changes mean so much, which was the case again this week when some gold changed hands.
This week’s Monday Night Raw saw Alpha Academy defeating RKBro to win the Raw Tag Team Titles. The win came after Alpha Academy defeated RKBro in a non-title match last week to earn the title match. Alpha Academy’s win gives Otis his first title in WWE, while Chad Gable is now a three time Tag Team Champion on the main roster. The loss ends RKBro’s reign after 142 days, having won the titles at Summerslam.
It was a big night. Check out the title change, the new champs’ celebration, and RKBro’s time with the gold:
Opinion: The title change was a bit of a surprise, but ultimately it isn’t like RKBro had much more to do with the titles. They had held the belts for nearly five months and beaten almost anyone who could come after them. What was left for them to do as champions? The title change came at the right time, as Otis and Gable are pretty hot as a team at the moment. Now they have the gold to prove it.
What do you think of the title change? How will Alpha Academy do as champions? Let us know in the comments below.
