The RAW Tag Team Division

Highlights of the Division

The story of the division wasn’t the huge win the Hardys secured against Cesaro and Sheamus but the beat down they endured after the match ended. This is what the tag team division sorely needed since WrestleMania concluded last month—a team that wasn’t going to lay back for the legendary Team Extreme. The Hardy Boys need foes like Cesaro and Sheamus to maintain their babyface momentum before it eventual wears off very soon. 

The fans need to get invested if they want to rationalize Cesaro and Sheamus getting another shot for the tag titles. Let’s be frank here, based on their win/loss record they shouldn’t be sniffing for a title shot but their new attitude change might make up for it. That’s where next week’s tag team turmoil match for the No. 1 Contender spot comes in.

Cesaro and Sheamus should be favoured to win the match since they have unfinished business with the champs. Gallows and Anderson might be a long shot to win the match but they are still entangled in a bitter feud with Enzo and Big Cass—so both teams will cancel each other out. The Revival are still out of contention due to Dash Wilder’s jaw injury but they’ll make a splash on the division in the next few months.

The rest of the pretenders of the tag team division won’t have shot in winning the match at all. Heath Slater and Rhyno have been abysmal since losing their titles on Smackdown Live last year and aren’t considered to be an elite team on RAW. For the Golden Truth, it was a noble gesture for them to beg Kurt Angle for a title opportunity but that’s as far as they will go for earning a title shot.

These are the rankings for the division this week.
