Though Raw general manager Kurt Angle announced two more matches at WrestleMania 34 on Monday, Cesaro and Sheamus still haven't been told who they'll defend their Tag Team Championships against.
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com, there's speculation that "the Bar is to face a team 'not currently a team 'at Wrestlemania 34." Johnson isn't sure what the team could be, however.
Seth Rollins and Finn Balor were a possible option - given the former's recent feuding with The Bar. However, both of his partners - Dean Ambrose and Jason Jordan - are out long-term with elbow and neck injuries, respectively. Angle announced on Raw that Balor and Rollins will compete against The Miz in a Triple Threat match for the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania.
The Hardy Boyz have been rumored to be an option as well, but Jeff has a shoulder injury and hasn't yet be cleared for action. That would leave Gallows & Anderson or The Revival as the only logical options, but it appears that WWE is set to form a new tag team to challenge Cesaro and Sheamus.
As of now, the only set matches are Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship, the aforementioned Miz-Rollins-Balor match and Angle and Ronda Rousey against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a mixed tag bout.

When next week's episode of Raw rolls around, WrestleMania will only be four weeks away. So we won't have to wait much longer in finding out just whom Cesaro and Sheamus will face.
Cesaro and Sheamus are on their fourth reign (the most for any tag team), together as the Raw Tag Team Champions. They've held onto the belts for a total of 204 days (and counting). The New Day still holds the record with 533 - certainly unlikely to get broken any time soon.
But for now, enjoy thinking of a possible new tag team that'll challenge The Bar.
