Surprised at that. They are a new pairing, so E should want them seen as much as possible, so people get more and more used to seeing them together.
 
Quote Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre vs. Rhyno & Heath Slater: Rhyno and Ziggler start this one off. Ziggler slaps Rhyno across the chest, and Rhyno drops him. Slater tags in and they double team Ziggle. Heath hits a big right hand on Ziggler, and then he attempts a suplex, but Dolph escapes. Drew tags in and trades punches with Slater. Slater starts firing up, but Drew shuts him down with a big boot. Drew chops Slater, then hangs him upside-down over the ropes and Ziggler superkicks Slater from the floor. Ziggler knocks Rhyno out to the floor, and then they hit a double-team Zig Zag/Claymore on Slater for the three count.

Winners: Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre

- Ziggler and McIntyre leave the ring and head to the back.

Really hope E are working on a team theme music, as that's one of the main things they are missing.
 
The mixture of their finishers into one special move looks brilliant.

I actually sent WWE a tweet the other day asking them to give them new music and it got quite a few retweets but they probably still didnt take any notice

Ive honestly got no idea why Strowman and Balor teamed up this week - the only thing i can think of was that they wanted Drew and Dolph to get a win over 2 big name superstars.

McIntyre v Strowman could be an interesting feud going forward

Drews "new" attitude is brilliant and i dont think there are many superstars who look the part as much as he does.

Hopefully they do. To be taken properly seriously as a tag team, you need a tag team theme.
 
Quote Ziggler came out to a record scratch and his shitty music, which is different than his recent scratch, pause, and shitty music entrance. McIntyre’s music took over and spared the world from hearing more of Ziggler’s shitty music…

7. Braun Strowman and Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler. Strowman and McIntyre glared at one another once they were both in the ring. Balor and Ziggler started the match. The big men tagged in quickly. McIntyre tagged out before they could lock up. [C] The heels isolated Balor until Strowman took a hot tag at 10:20. Strowman worked over Ziggler briefly, but Ziggler avoided him charging into the corner.

Balor tagged back into the match and fought with Ziggler. Balor had Ziggler down and started to go up top, but McIntyre reached up and stopped him. Strowman took out McIntyre with a shoulder block on the floor, but Ziggler took advantage of the distraction and hit the ropes. Balor fell to the match and was pinned by Ziggler…

Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler defeated Braun Strowman and Finn Balor in 12:25.

The only way they were going to win was to pin Balor, but I will take it.
 
It's a shame the crowd didn't react much. Drew being Scottish should have got him major heat, not silence.

You are aware that generally English and Scottish hate each other right? so him not getting a reaction over here doesnt really surprise me

They really need to sort their fucking music out

Drew has star written all over him and I would say he looks the part even more than Roman Reigns. 

WWE have done the right thing here by having Drew work heel alongside a established star like Ziggler, hopefully this can result in Drew getting over strong with the fans organically and then at the right time WWE can pull the trigger on a babyface turn for him. He proved effective as a face both in TNA and NXT. 

A win over Strowman and Balor shows that WWE have big plans for these two.

I get that. That's why he should have got a reaction of hate. The English crowd couldn't be arsed giving the Scottish guy any banter chants.
 
Quote Kurt Angle is backstage trying to get cell phone service, when he gets interrupted by Chad Gable. Angle and Gable chat about Gable possibly being in a Money In The Bank qualifying match, but then Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler walk in. Drew talks about beating Balor and Strowman last week, and says they'd love to do it again, but those decisions are above Angle's pay grade now. They make some jokes about Kurt not being in his office anymore, and they mock Gable too. Gable says they aren't as special as they think they are, and Drew steps up top Gable. Angle gets between them, and says they'll settle it in the ring tonight. Drew and Ziggler walk off, and Angle calls them jackasses.
 
Chad Gable vs. Dolph Ziggler: Back from commercial, this one is already underway. McIntyre is at ringside in Ziggler's corner. Gable takes down Ziggler early and wrestles him down to the mat. Ziggler turns it around and hits a dropkick, then keeps Gable grounded. Ziggler continues to work over Gable until Gable takes him down and rolls him up for a two count. Ziggler gets up and starts working over Gable's knee. Ziggler blocks a German suplex attempt, and follows up with a neckbreaker on Gable. Ziggler charges at Gable in the corner, but Gable stops him with an elbow to the face. Gable dodges a superkick, and then rolls up Ziggler for a two count. Gable sends Ziggler int othe corner and hits a German suplex for a two count. Ziggler comes back with a headbutt and then a superkick for the three count.

Winner: Dolph Ziggler

- After the match, Drew hits the ring and hits the Claymore kick on Gable. Ziggler and McIntyre stand tall over Gable as we go to commercial.

Management are really behind them, as their heel win streak continues to grow.
 
They haven't been together long, but will be fast tracked to a title match or even a defense no later than Summerslam I would guess.

I would expect we'll see Ziggler and McIntyre pushed for a couple of months while the B Team and maybe Breezango get title shots to firmly cement Wyatt and Hardy.

Ziggler/McIntyre take the belts around Summerslam as you say, leaving Wyatt and Hardy to implode. Long term I think we'll see American Alpha vs Ziggler/McIntyre for the belts at Wrestlemania.
