The Revival def. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson in a Tag Team Eliminator Match
Alas, Braun Strowman & Nicholas the fan’s Cinderella run with the Raw Tag Team Titles has come to an end. Due to the young champion’s scheduling conflicts — as Strowman helpfully pointed out, he’s in the fourth grade — the champs relinquished their titles on Raw, setting up a two-week bracket that Raw General Manager Kurt Angle dubbed the Tag Team Eliminator, where the winner battles Cesaro & Sheamus for the vacant titles at the Greatest Royal Rumble event.
First to advance? The Revival, who began their Raw journey at last year’s #RawAfterMania and did not waste the opportunity to hit reset on a Team Red run that has been haunted by injuries. To wit, they powered relatively quickly past Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson thanks to a strategy that zeroed in completely on The Suntan Biker Man’s leg. When Anderson was forced to turn on the jets, The Revival used his frenzy to their advantage, scoring a sneaky tag and sending him stumbling headlong into a waiting Shatter Machine for the 1-2-3.
