Ever since the Superstar Shake-up, it’s seemed like Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre’s ascent to the top of the Tag Team division was only a matter of time. That time has come: After helping get The Shield arrested (thus taking a potential Seth Rollins-Ziggler Intercontinental Title rematch off the table), The Showoff and the Scotsman strong-armed their way into a Raw Tag Team Title bout with The B-Team by taking out previously-announced challengers The Revival. Despite a strong effort from the champions, Ziggler & McIntyre ultimately made good on the ill-gotten opportunity, walking out of Ohio as Raw Tag Team Champions.
That victory ends a remarkable Cinderella story for Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel, but The B-Team didn’t shy away from the challenge despite a total lack of preparation for their opponents; they took down the mighty McIntyre at one point, opening Ziggler up to isolation. Axel found himself stranded, however, after The Scottish Psychopath stormed the ring and took Dallas out by fastballing him into the turnbuckle. A superkick cleaned Axel’s clock, and the Claymore-Zig Zag twofer shut the lights. New champs. Cue the bagpipes.
