Chris King breaks down Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman defeating Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson for the Raw Tag Team Championships. Was it the wrong move.
Last week, The Monster Among Men Braun Strowman made his shocking return during the champion vs. champion match between Seth Rollins and AJ Styles. Strowman bulldozes through The O.C. to aid, the Universal Champion from a post-match attack between all three members. On last night’s Raw, The Beastslayer returned the favor and came to Strowman’s aid from a three-on-one beatdown reminiscent to the previous week.
A fired-up Rollins proclaimed that he and The Monster Among Men challenged Gallows and Anderson for the Raw Tag Team Championships. In a stellar highly-intense tag team bout The Beastslayer and The Monster Among Men became Tag Team Champions.
Did they do it? YES, THEY DID.

Normally I would be ecstatic about Rollins becoming a duel champion and Strowman FINALLY making it back to the top where he truly belongs, however, this transition came at the expense of a downfall for Gallows and Anderson’s momentum.
The Good Brothers have been criminally mistreated since their arrival in 2016, there were so much buzz and speculation claiming “this time The Club” would be booked strongly.” I agree that it’s fantastic to see The O.C. receiving a massive amount of tv time, I am just uncertain if them losing the tag team titles to the ongoing storyline surrounding the Universal Championship title scene.
On a side note, The Revival and The Viper Randy Orton joined forces on last week’s SmackDown Live to take on all three members of The New Day and were victorious. On last night’s Raw during Dash and Dawson’s tag team match against Big E and Xavier Woods, struck with an RKO outta nowhere!
As a stable, Randy Orton and The Revival look good together.
Not sure what you'd call them, but they just fit side by side.

The sadistic and vicious Orton forced the WWE Champion to watch Woods get his foot smashed while Kofi could do nothing to help his New Day brother. The Viper appears to be systematically destroying Kofi mentally right now, could the next step in his vindictive process be allowing The Revival to win the SmackDown Tag Team Championships?
