WWE RAW saw a few interesting progressions in the storyline this week, but the fact that Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler were teamed up and automatically became #1 contenders for the RAW Tag Team Titles seems to be a fascinating choice.
As we previously reported, Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman are very likely to drop the titles at Clash Of Champions to build heat for their match.
Dave Meltzer explained on Wrestling Observer Radio that they needed wrestlers with unique ability for their Clash Of Champions tag team title match. Heavy Machinery didn’t meet those qualifications, so they picked two guys who could work around Braun Strowman.
“I don’t think they want to do a match with Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman against Heavy Machinery. I don’t think that’s a good match for a pay-per-view. You could do the Revival, but the one thing with Roode and Ziggler you’ve got there is you could put them in there with Strowman and you know, they’ll know how to work around him and things like that. It’s not going to be anything you have to worry about. Whatever it is, they came up with a team, the team was good, so that’s cool. I think it’s a good thing that they came up with a good team. So many times they’ve come up with bad teams.”
It will be interesting to see what WWE does from this point on, because they have all the ability in the world to change things up. At this point, it looks like Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode are set for a big match on September 15th and they could very well walk out of Charlotte as RAW Tag Team Champions, but they’ll have to figure out a way to defeat Rollins and Strowman first.
