Still WWE Tag Team Champions

RAW started off with a bang as New Day defended their WWE Tag Team Championship, in a triple threat tag team match against the team of Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows and the team Sheamus and Cesaro. All the tag teams shined throughout the match as expected. Cesaro stole the show with his multiple spots throughout the match.

Anderson caught a Brogue Kick and Kofi Kingston would connect with the Trouble in Paradise on Sheamus. After the match, New Day celebrated backstage as they sprayed Stephanie McMahon with champagne. This resulted in another triple threat tag team match for the WWE Tag Team Championship in the main event. The New Day had their hands full with the former best friends, Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens and the former Shield brothers Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns.

The former best friends was a count away from the titles after Jericho  hit a Pop-up Codebreaker on Woods. Rollins nailed a Pedigree on Jericho but Big E grabbed Kevin Owens ankle. Woods ended up putting his arm over Jericho for the win. The New Day made history and they broke Demolition’s WWE Tag Team title reign of 478 days.

2) Tune up match

Rich Swann will defend his WWE Cruiserweight Title against the two prior champions, TJ Perkins and The Brian Kendrick at WWE Roadblock this Sunday. The most desperate individuals are the most dangerous and Kendrick is one of them. Kendrick managed to escape the deadly kneebar submission of Perkins. Kendrick would connect Sliced Bread on Perkins for a crucial win heading into Roadblock.
He demands Foley give him a match against Braun Strowman at Roadblock: End of the Line.

3) Motivation

The RAW general manager Mick Foley provided extra motivation to Sami Zayn. Foley teased Zayn that he was going to be traded to SmackDown for Eva Marie. However, that was not the case Foley made a match at Roadblock against Braun Strowman. There is one specific stipulation to this match as Zayn needs to last ten minutes with Braun Strowman.
