Quote Dolph Ziggler comes out on the stage, and it appears he is now on the RAW roster. Ziggler comes down to the ring and gets on the mic and talks about being back on RAW. Ziggler says he's still the best Superstar to ever walk the aisle, but something changed. Before Ziggler can say what changed, Titus Worldwide comes out to interrupt. Titus welcomes Ziggler back, and he steps in the ring with Apollo and Dana. Titus tries to recruit Ziggler to Titus Worldwide, and he says Ziggler is a multi-talented super star. Ziggler thanks Titus for the offer, but declines. Ziggler says before he got interrupted, he was about to say something changed: he didn't come to RAW alone. Drew McIntyre then runs in and attacks Titus and Crews from behind. Dolph and Drew continue to beat down Crews and Titus. They hit a double-team Zig Zag and Claymore on Crews before leaving.
 
Now this is an interesting pairing. The best part of the whole first night of the shake up.
 
Because of how much they will strengthen the tag team division, I can look past Drew turning heel for no apparent reason and therefore not getting his babyface return from injury pop.
 
I hope they give a good explaination why two guys with no history, all of a sudden are looking out for eachother.

I agree this was easily the most interesting move in the shake up.

I liked McIntyre as a edgy babyface in NXT but this heel partnership with Ziggler is interesting, both men are loaded with personality and in ring talent so this could work and I’m very interested to see where it goes.

At the very least they would be a very good tag team but I would rather see them in singles matches.

I was super surprised with this one

Was still annoyed they havent fixed Zigglers entrance

Hopefully now they are a tag team then they will get some decent music and maybe a slight repackage in terms of attire etc

Mcintyres aggression and Zigglers flair make good ground for a good team

Quote Titus Worldwide vs. Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre: Titus Worldwide comes out first, then Drew and Dolph come out separately. Ziggler and Titus start off and Titus takes control early on. Crews tags in and hits a moonsault on Ziggler for a two count. Crews continues the offense until Drew gets the tag and double teams Crews. McIntyre works over Crews and taunts Titus on the apron. Ziggler and McIntyre hit some double team moves now, and finish up with the Claymore - Zig Zag combo on Crews for the three count.

Winners: Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler

- After the match, Ziggler and McIntyre do an interview in the ring with Charly Caruso. They talk about how dangerous Drew is, and Drew says he's a superstar and he's the reality check WWE needs. Ziggler says they don't care about showing off, because this is the show. They walk off and heads to the back.

I guess we won't be getting an explaination for the unexplained change of attitude with Drew.
 
Drew has bulked up a lot. He appears to be a fair bit bigger than his NXT days and a lot bigger than during his first E run.
 
I can see Dolph being pushed the most, at least to begin with. Think of him as HBK and Drew as Diesel for their roles.

I like the comparison to HBK and Diesel, I see them as almost a more PG more serious version of the original DX too.

Liked Dolphs line about not stealing the show because they are the show. Drew certainly has bulked up since his early days, think he’s just grown into his physique as he was only in his early twenties during his first WWE run.

Yeah I made the HBK Diesel comparison as soon as they appeared on Raw and I hope that continues to play out that way. 

I'm a bit worried seeing them in tag team competition though, as I hope they'll be more singles competitors than anything. TBH I really enjoy the pairing and I hope this leads to Ziggler being a main event star. I think McIntyre might just be the thing Ziggler was missing to be WWE Universal Champion once Lesnar is gone and out of the picture. Ziggler, with the help of McIntyre would be great as the guy that takes the title away from Roman Reigns. At the VERY LEAST Ziggler should be in the main event against Reigns at a PPV or two over the summer, even if he doesn't win.

It’s a really interesting partnership because it feels fresh and different and it’s giving the long held back Ziggler something noteworthy to do and almost has people forgetting all the jobbing he’s done.

I do wonder if the goal here is to put McIntyre over, it could go several ways.....

1) They become a regular tag-team chasing the tag titles - I hope this doesn’t happen as both men could be singles stars.

2) They get so over that they end up turning babyface.

3) They follow the same path as Diesel and Shawn and ultimately split up and feud.

I really DO hope it's #3. I'm sure you're right that the whole point is to get McIntyre over, but if Ziggler were to become WWE champion on down the road, and then they split and McIntyre takes the title from Ziggler? To me that's just win-win, except for the fact that someone still needs to get the title off Brock, and if Brock is holding the title until he breaks CM Punk's "record" then it's probably not going to be Reigns, and then who will it be? So it just doesn't seem likely to me.

However if it were Ziggler vs Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship, then maybe that'd be a more realistic and acceptable compromise?

The whole thing with this is Ziggler came out and said he brought someone with him who of course turned out to be McIntyre instantly suggesting Ziggler is ‘the guy’ in this arrangement and Drew is his back up.

Would be something wouldn’t it if Ziggler goes on to win the World title this year which in turn leads to a split between him and McIntyre and a feud between the two over the title. Like I said I think the goal here is establish Drew as a big player and doing that should achieve it.

There has been alot bout this on the internet over the past week or so

Its a great act if they can let it run for a prolonged period of time instead of having the inevitable split after about 3 weeks

They need a tag team entrance because the merging of the two themes is awful

Regarding Adders' point - Mcintyre was about this size during his recent run with NXT but he is certainly alot bigger than his first run in WWE.

Probably been on the gear in his years between his first and second run

I'm looking forward to see how these guys are booked going forward


Mcintyre has all the attributes - hes going to be a superstar if he keeps up this level of performance and this new attitude.
