Team Raw def. Team SmackDown LIVE in a 10-on-10 Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match

TORONTO – The ever-quarreling combination of Sheamus & Cesaro brought home a huge victory for Team Raw at Survivor Series, outlasting five of SmackDown LIVE’s elite tandems and emerging as the Sole Survivors in a jaw-dropping 10-on-10 Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match.

It was the one night of the year when Raw and SmackDown LIVE were pitted against one another for brand supremacy. From the word “go,” each tag team stood ready to fight tooth-and-nail until all of their opponents were pinned, disqualified, counted out or forced to submit. Only then would one brand be declared the winner.

Prior to the contest, both Enzo Amore & Big Cass and Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day vocalized their intentions to emerge victorious, though every tandem wore the mark of determination on their faces while making their way to the ring. Unfortunately, it appeared that Breezango took the start of the match too lightly, enabling Kofi Kingston to take advantage and quickly eliminate the fashion police with the Midnight Hour. Almost as lightning-fast, The Usos returned the favor, delivering  a quick superkick on Kofi to score the follow-up pinfall and eliminate Raw’s team captains!

As the fast-paced showdown continued, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson laid waste to Zack Ryder to send Team SmackDown LIVE’s Hype Bros to the showers. American Alpha next rose to the occasion and eliminated Raw’s Shining Stars.

With both sides down to three teams, a brawl broke out, and the action quickly escalated both inside and outside the ring. Yet amid a rapid series of high-flying maneuvers from both brands, Raw's Gallows & Anderson hit the Magic Killer on Jason Jordan to eliminate American Alpha. Then, when a subsequent mistake caused Gallows to get into a dispute with his own team, Team Blue’s Rhyno delivered a surprise Gore for the three-count. That celebration was also short-lived, as Raw's Enzo & Big Cass took advantage of the commotion long enough to eliminate the SmackDown Tag Team Champions – only to be upended moments later by a superkick and Samoan Splash from The Usos.

The match came down to a knock-down, drag-out struggle between SmackDown LIVE's Usos and Raw's Sheamus & Cesaro. Though both tandems scored near-pinfalls on several occasions, the final moments of the contest saw Cesaro reverse Jey Uso’s Tequila Sunrise to lock in the Sharpshooter. Jimmy tried to break it up with a superkick, only to be intercepted by a brutal Brogue Kick from The Celtic Warrior, Trapped in the middle of the ring, Jey had no choice but to tap out, leaving Cesaro, Sheamus and Team Red victorious.

Though they continued to bicker throughout their team's shining moment, there can be no arguement that Sheamus & Cesaro standing as the Sole Survivors was a huge coup for Raw in its struggle to prove itself as the superior brand.
