Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler have finally captured the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships, as they wisely picked their spot after “Acting GM” Baron Corbin gave them a little hint.
There is no doubt that ever since they joined forces during the Superstar Shakeup, Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler have consistently been one of the best things about WWE Raw. Ziggler’s feud with Seth Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship has given us several memorable matches, whereas McIntyre has 100% looked like a star and just might be the best NXT call-up in recent memory. This will become the case if he wins the Universal Championship, as even Michael Cole has alluded to McIntyre as a future world champ.
For now, McIntyre will carry the Raw Tag Team Championships with Ziggler, and it will be interesting to see how long their reign goes. This title change was a long-time coming, and the fans have to be incredibly thankful for this change. The Raw Tag Division has talent, but it seemed to be treading water with each and every fluky B Team title defense over The Revival.
Tonight, The Revival were supposed to face against the B Team after earning another crack at the championships following their loss to Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel on the SummerSlam pre-show. Instead, McIntyre and Ziggler took out The Revival backstage, so that Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder couldn’t physically compete in the match.
Ziggler and McIntyre stole this opportunity from the former NXT Tag Team Champions, and they followed through on their mission of holding the belts together.
These two men have been unstoppable forces on Monday Night Raw, and as the champions, the have put the rest of the tag team division on notice. This includes the Authors of Pain, who seem to be aligned with 205 Live GM Drake Maverick. And, yes, tonight’s episode of Raw has been absolutely insane!
Anyway, it is a treat to watch McIntyre and Ziggler every week, and they will immediately bring much-needed prestige to the Raw Tag Team Division after this tremendous victory over the B Team. I liked the B Team and absolutely love their backstage work, but their title reign always had a shelf life.
Authors of Pain vs. McIntyre and Ziggler after their feud with The Revival ends? I’m down!
