Tag Team Turmoil No. 1 Contender’s Match (Kickoff Match)

Alex Giannini: One thing’s for sure — the tag team division in WWE is looking pretty awesome right now. Who walks away with the opportunity to face off against titleholders Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns? My money is on The Prime Time Players riding their recent wave of momentum to a huge victory. WINNERS: The Prime Time Players

Anthony Benigno: Prime Time Players. They’re the only guys who haven’t gotten a crack at The Shield yet, but with their massive winning streak lately – to quote another Superstar – their time is now. WINNERS: The Prime Time Players

Jake Grate: With five tag teams vying for a precious opportunity at Seth Rollins’ & Roman Reigns’ WWE Tag Team Titles, the Night of Champions Kickoff Match promises turmoil, indeed. Although both The Usos and The Prime Time Players have picked up impressive momentum in recent weeks, the victory here goes to the team with the patriotic mission statement and the mustachioed manager. WINNERS: The Real Americans

John Clapp: There’s a lot of hungry talent in the Tag Team Turmoil Match, not to mention big bodies and risk takers. Few duos, however, run as smooth an operation as The Real Americans. Coupled with their stellar conditioning, which is important in this type of bout, Jack Swagger & Antonio Cesaro’s fine-tuned teamwork will lead to victory. WINNERS: The Real Americans

James Wortman: There’s a level of unpredictability when it comes to gauntlet-style Tag Team Turmoil Matches, with the fifth team selected to enter the fray securing a significant advantage over their weary opponents. Yet, considering the five teams involved in this chaotic battle, The Prime Time Players have been on an undeniable hot streak since SummerSlam, fueled in large part by their increasingly powerful connection to the WWE Universe. Thanks to an offense loaded with double-team maneuvers, Darren Young & Titus O’Neil will be the last men standing, giving the tandem a WWE Tag Team Championship opportunity against Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns that night.  Unfortunately, however, it’s unlikely that any team will be able to overcome The Shield in a weakened state, making a WWE Tag Team Title change on Sunday a near-impossibility. WINNERS: The Prime Time Players

Prime Time Players: 3; Real Americans: 2
