Well….of course? Last week on Monday Night Raw, Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre defeated the B Team to become the new Raw Tag Team Champions. That puts them on top of a pretty weak tag division, but that’s been the case for a long time on Monday Night Raw. They need some strong challengers and with the next pay per view coming up on Sunday, the best option wasn’t exactly a surprise.
This week on Monday Night Raw, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins were announced as the new #1 contenders to the Raw Tag Team Titles and will be receiving their title shot at Sunday’s Hell In A Cell pay per view. Rollins and Ambrose are no strangers to holding the Tag Team Titles, holding them for about two and a half months last fall. The match will be a standard tag match.
And here’s how it happened.
Opinion: Was there really a surprise here? There wasn’t exactly a big group of challengers to pick from so they went with the logical pick. It’s not a secret that the two teams were likely to face each other at the pay per view anyway, so throwing the titles out there isn’t the worst idea in the world. You could even see a surprise title change, though it’s anyone’s guess.
Are you glad this is now a title match? Who leaves as champions? Let us know in the comments below.
