Tonight’s episode of Raw from Manchester, England saw a lot of champions, but only one title belt was put on the line in the UK tonight – it was the Raw Tag Team Championship held by Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose. And I say “was” because they lost the belts to new Raw Tag Team Champions Sheamus and Cesaro.
Earlier in the evening both Intercontinental Champion The Miz and Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore had matches but they were non-title bouts. The Miz’s match against Braun Strowman ended in a DQ when Kane interfered and Amore lost his fight against WWE UK Champion Pete Dunne.
WWE Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss was at the show, but she didn't fight tonight. She did appear in a backstage piece being interviewed by Charly Caruso who tried to talk to her about how she ran away during #UnderSiege.
As for Universal Champion Brock Lesnar - no, he wasn't there tonight. But we did get a piece hyping Lesnar v. Jinder Mahal and then it was announced that The Beast Incarnate would be on the "go home" Raw show next week.
The Tag Team title match was announced earlier in the show and it was the Main Event match that ended the night. And, as you might have expected, the fight wasn’t without interruptions. And the interruption came in the form of The New Day.
Late into the fight The New Day’s music hit. Out came the SmackDown tag team walking through the crowd and asking the people how they are liking the 3 hour “B show.”
They also pointed out that Raw had never retaliated to SmackDown’s first attack and they teased what another attack - calling it Under Siege Part 2. But this time Raw was better prepared and out came Raw GM Kurt Angle with the Raw locker room putting an end to any thoughts of a "Part 2" tonight. Meanwhile, back in the ring...
The Bar (Sheamus and Cesaro) got the victory via pinfall after Sheamus connected with a Brogue Kick on Dean Ambrose and voila! New Raw Tag Team Champions.
