During Monday’s episode of Raw, a tag title match was set up that led to Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy becoming the new Raw tag team champions.
Rollins & Murphy defeated The Viking Raiders after challenging the reigning champions earlier in the night with the Raiders aligning themselves with Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe.
The match went 11:04 with the finish occurring after Rollins shoved Ivar off the turnbuckle and landed back first on the edge of the apron. From there, Murphy struck Erik with a knee, he was draped on the bottom rope and was hit with the stomp from Rollins leading to Murphy getting the cover.
The switch ends the Vikings Raiders’ three-month reign as champions after winning them last October. It is the sixth time that Rollins has won the Raw version of the tag titles with past partners including Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Jason Jordan, and Braun Strowman.
During Murphy’s tenure with WWE, he has previously held the NXT tag titles with Wesley Blake and was the WWE Cruiserweight champion from October 2018 until last April.
