The RAW Tag Team Division

Highlights of the Division

A steel cage match for RAW Tag Team Championships at Extreme Rules might be the perfect opportunity for Cesaro and Sheamus to capture the titles. They haven’t had any shot in defeating the Hardys in tag or singles action since April. Their heel turn was supposed to resolve the discrepancies and gap between the teams but the champs have steamrolled their challengers. 

The novelty will wear off from the Hardys if they retain their titles at Extreme Rules. It’ll probably be in the WWE’s best interest to strap the titles to the European bruisers. That should prolong the feud another month and give the Hardys time to adjust their characters. This would be the perfect time to introduce the “Broken” character of Matt Hardy should they lose the titles. Having him mentally snap will force the story to add another dimension to the championship feud.

It’s extremely disappointing that Karl Anderson has been reduced to jobber status in his match against Finn Balor this week. Anderson and Gallows should be positioning themselves for a future title opportunity, not playing the role that Curt Hawkins does every week on RAW.

Enzo Amore getting jumped from behind might be the perfect way to re-introduce the Revival back to the division. They are the only team to operate with that type of viciousness and it’ll be interesting to see if it is them. If Enzo wasn’t attacked by them, it could be by his tag team partner Big Cass—which is a stupid mistake. No need for the WWE to break another tag team apart since there is barely any left on RAW.

These are the rankings for the division this week.

RAW Tag Team Champions: The Hardy Boys (3 Wins – 0 Losses)


  • No.1 Contender: Cesaro and Sheamus (5 Wins – 6 Losses)
  • Contender No. 2: Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson (7 Wins – 9 Losses)
  • Contender No. 3: The Revival (2 Wins – 0 Losses)


  • Pretender No. 1: Enzo and Big Cass (4 Wins – 8 Losses)
  • Pretender No. 2: Heath Slater & Rhyno (2 Wins – 3 Losses)
