Luke Gallows def. Raw Tag Team Champion Cesaro
If not for a miscue involving the referees last week, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson would be Raw Tag Team Champions. But the good brothers didn’t exactly let themselves wallow in disappointment one week after their non-victory, with Gallows picking up a singles win over Cesaro despite the fact that Karl Anderson was chased away from ringside by Sheamus.
Left to his own devices against Cesaro, The Suntan Biker Man struggled to find an answer for The King of Swing’s multifaceted attack, not to mention some chicanery from Sheamus that let him get a cheap shot in on Gallows. Anderson made his return right as Cesaro locked Gallows in the Sharpshooter, taking out Sheamus from behind and distracting the referee right as the big man tapped. When Cesaro released the hold, Gallows sprang into action with a big boot and fireman’s carry flapjack for the win. So some referee funny business mars the match again. Good thing the title rematch this Sunday will have two.
