EVERETT, Wash. — The couple that defends their championships together, stays together. At least, that’s what Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch will likely be hoping now that they’ve been roped into a rare, winners-take-all Mixed Tag Team Match against Baron Corbin & Lacey Evans with both the Universal and Raw Women’s Championships at stake.
Some context: Last night, Corbin had rather cleverly selected Evans as his guest ref for his title bout against Rollins, who was pretty chair-happy over the past couple of weeks but wasn't about to turn the steel against The Sassy Southern Belle. However, thanks to Evans consistently abusing her power and making the match no disqualification and no count-out, Lynch rushed the ring to lay a brutal beatdown on Evans, freeing up veteran official and noted Corbin nemesis John Cone to do what he does best and count The Lone Wolf down for three.
On Raw, Corbin and Evans struck back, ambushing The Man and her man during their power-couple victory lap. While the two champions turned back their attackers, Corbin and Evans got the opportunity of a lifetime thanks to an offhanded boast that they could take Rollins and Lynch in a Mixed Tag Team Match. Becky accepted on the condition that, should Corbin and Evans lose, neither of them competes against Rollins or The Man ever again, and Rollins agreed to whatever conditions Corbin & Evans chose. Corbin once again showed his canny opportunism by laying a blockbuster stipulation of his own: Both the Universal and Raw Women’s Championships would be at stake; Winners Take All.
