Cesaro & Sheamus came together in timely enough fashion to be Sole Survivors on Sunday, but they’re a ways from becoming Raw Tag Team Champions yet. Despite earning a title match against The New Day, The King of Swing and Celtic Warrior fell short against the champions, who are now determined to beat Demolition’s World Tag Team Championship record by hook or by crook.
It didn’t help that Sheamus accidentally laid Cesaro out at one point. Though The King of Swing certainly roared back with an astounding midair tilt-a-whirl backbreaker to Kofi Kingston, a Cesaro Swing beyond count (though the crowd seemed to think it was 10, for some reason) and, finally, a Sharpshooter. Sheamus even took out Big E at ringside with a Brogue Kick, but Xavier Woods both distracted the ref with Francesca II Turbo right when Kingston tapped. He then physically held Sheamus back from breaking up Kingston’s small package to Cesaro once the action resumed.
