The action between Raw Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Sheamus and challengers Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson has grown so wild and out of control that two referees will be assigned to this Sunday’s title rematch on the Royal Rumble Kickoff.
The last time these two teams met, on the Jan. 16 edition of Raw, Sheamus accidentally clobbered referee John Cone in the bout’s final moments. Seconds later, Gallows & Anderson seized control and took down Cesaro with the Magic Killer. At that point, another referee, WWE official Darrick Moore, entered the ring to administer a three-count. As Gallows & Anderson celebrated their victory, however, Cone regained his senses and overturned Moore’s decision, explaining that he was disqualifying Sheamus.
Gallows & Anderson remained the winners on record, but, as titles cannot change via disqualification, were left empty-handed. The tandem cried foul following the controversy, claiming they were cheated out of the championship, but reiterated their objectives of “being mean and making green,” and of taking over Raw’s Tag Team division. More importantly, they said, they proved they can beat the champions.
Will the bruisers in black finally score their first Raw Tag Team Title win, or will the steadily gelling team of Cesaro & Sheamus find a way to retain? And how will the complexion of the brawl be shaped by the presence of two referees?
Prediction… with two referees, you know that a mix up is going to take place, most likely one will call for a pin while the other calls for a submission, bullshit shenanigans to progress the storyline to a match at WrestleMania – that being said I don’t really care because of that probable outcome so the champions to retain
