5. 30-Minute Ironman Match for the Raw Tag Team Championship
Cesaro and Sheamus (c) vs. The Hardy Boyz
Is this feud still happening? It seems like it has drug on forever. Hoping to get a definitive winner, Kurt Angle has opted to have the two tag team battle it out in a 30-minute Ironman Match. The stipulation seems to benefit Sheasaro to begin with, as the younger duo has shown stamina while the Hardyz are known for jumping off things in a very scary manner. Entertaining, for sure, but probably not the best strategy in this type of match. The high-risk high-reward might burn them out quickly.
WWE also should shy away from hot-potatoing the Tag Team Championships, less the feud become stale the way Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte Flair did last year. As the defending champions, that gives them also a slight advantage.
Then again, they’re the Hardyz and always credible as Champions. With no plans to break them up anytime soon, it’s a possibility that they might pull out this seemingly impossible feat. Sheasaro are the smart bet, but this could be an easy swerve for Great Balls of Fire.
