That’s one way to solve things. Last month, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose became the Raw Tag Team Champions again in a very good match against Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre. The celebration was short lived though as Ambrose turned on Rollins, leaving several questions to be answered. One of these was the state of the titles, and now we have an answer.
This week on Monday Night Raw, Rollins lost the titles to AOP in a handicap match, as ordered by acting General Manager Baron Corbin. Ambrose ran in and attacked Rollins after the match was over. This marks the first title reign for the AOP, who are currently scheduled to face SmackDown Tag Team Champions the Bar in a champion vs. champion match at Survivor Series.
Here’s how everything went wrong two weeks back.
Opinion: They didn’t have much of a choice but to change the titles and the AOP are as good as anyone else to put them on. There aren’t a lot of top teams on the show at the moment so going with some monsters who can be taken down by another team later is a smart way to go. AOP are already overdue for a push so giving them the titles, even this way, is a good idea.
Do you like this move? Who will take the titles from the AOP? Let us know in the comments below.
