On WWE Raw this week, The Bellas compete as a team for the first time on television in nearly three years. Plus, Shawn Michaels is in the house, and the Raw Tag Team Championships are on the line. Follow along with our live review!
Previously on WWE Raw, Braun Strowman picked the most logical but least likely backup in history in his battle against The Shield. Dean Ambrose tried some meditative breathing. The Revival beat the Raw Tag Team Champions to get a match for the Tag Team Championship. Trish Stratus made a surprise return. And Kevin Owens quit.
This week, it’s going to be a wild one on a Labor Day edition of Raw. Two matches have been announced so far — a pair of tag team matches at that. In arguably the more high profile of the two, Nikki and Brie Bella will compete as a tag team for the first time (on television) since October 2015. The twin sisters will face two members of the Riott Squad in their big return.
The other tag team match is for the Raw Tag Team Championships, as The B-Team will defend against — stop me if you’ve heard this one — The Revival. I know, right? Dash and Dawson have defeated Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel in singles matches and a tag team match, which apparently was finally enough for interim GM Baron Corbin to award another championship match to the Top Guys.
In other news, Shawn Michaels will pop in on this week’s episode of WWE Raw to weigh in on the whole Triple H and Undertaker match that’s taking place in Australia at Super Show-Down. HBK has been working as a coach at the Performance Center, but he’s got more history with both The Game and The Phenom than pretty much anybody on the planet. Will Michaels take sides, or play it down the middle?
