The Bar spoke a touch too soon last week by insisting they’d beaten every tag team Monday Night Raw has to offer, but as of this week, Cesaro & Sheamus can finally make the claim: Following their victory over The Revival, the Raw Tag Team Champions have officially swept the field.
And, since a Revival win would have gotten Dash & Dawson a title match at WrestleMania, The Bar have seemingly vanquished all their potential challengers for the big dance. That said, the “Top Guys” fought with all the ferocity you’d expect from their two reigns as NXT Tag Team Champions, and The Bar only beat The Revival by using their own strategy of cutting the ring in half against them.
Even then, however, it was about as close a win as you could get. True to form, Dash & Dawson took a cue from a classic tag team and seized control with a Powerplex that notched a near three-count. With the match slipping away, Sheamus was forced to run interference, taking out Dash Wilder with a Brogue Kick before The Revival could execute the Shatter Machine on Cesaro. The Swiss Cyborg administered the Neutralizer to the stranded Scott Dawson, and that was that. The Bar march down the Road to WrestleMania a little worse for wear, but victorious all the same.
