Hopefully without the injuries yeah.

They're pretty well established now, in a way that would really devalue the tag division if they moved into it, I feel. I still think vs AOP is the next big tag feud.

Quote Baron Corbin is backstage berating a production assistant when Braun, Drew and Dolph walk in. Dolph and Drew want a match for the Tag Titles tonight, but Corbin says he can't tonight because The Revival has already got the Title shot. Drew says he heard The Revival isn't able to compete tonight, and asks what if they aren't able to compete tonight. Corbin says if they aren't, then he'd have to make other arranements. Drew and Dolph smile and walk off. Braun gets in Corbin's face and tells him to find him some competition for tonight.
- The Revival is backstage for an interview, when Drew and Dolph attack from behind. They beat down The Revival around the backstage area and throw them into some production equipment.

- The B Team (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre: The Revival's music hits, but they don't come out. It looks like Drew and Dolph will get this Tag Title shot instead. The opening bell sounds and Drew starts off strong, knocking Dallas off the apron and then hitting a belly to belly suplex on Axel. Ziggler gets the tag and goes at it with Axel, until Dallas gets the tag. Ziggler misses a splash in the corner and Dallas hits a lariat then knocks Dolph to the outside. The B Team clotheslines Drew to the outside next. Back in the ring, Drew turns things around against Dallas and beats on him in the corner. Dallas fights back with some kicks and then a DDT. Axel and Ziggler get the tags, and Axel cleans house. Axel hits a Perfect-plex and pins, but Drew breaks it up. Drew splexes Axel down, and then Dallas runs in but Drew drops him too. Ziggler and Axel get to their feet, and Ziggler hits a superkick. Drew tags in and they follow up with the double team Zig Zag for the three count.


Winners & new Tag Team Champions: Drew McIntyre & Dolph Ziggler

- Drew and Dolph celebrate with their new Tag Title belts after the match.
 
Great booking. Take out the number one contenders to take their place in a title match and then win.
 
About time that the tag titles were back on a serious team that look the part for the role they are in.
 
I can see a long run for them now. I suspect at Survivor Series they will be in a traditional ten man match, but still be champions.

Really good match and McIntyre/Ziggler continue their monster push by winning the tag belts. It's a decision I'm happy with it as I'm loving the combination of these two guys and I think we all knew the comedy act the B-Team wouldn't be champs long-term.

McIntyre continues to impress me with his power game in the ring, he's reinvented himself as a monster heel and I hope they keep booking him this way.

Quote Corbin comes out to the ring, and he's got a mic. He talks about his plan to defeat Strowman at TLC to become the permanent RAW GM. Corbin says he's proof that if you're born better than everybody else, you can achieve anything. Corbin says he's had some thorns in his side, but lately his journey has been smoother than usual due to this man - Drew McIntyre. Corbin introduces a highlight video about Drew, then McIntyre comes out to the ring. Corbin says they have to commemorate this night, and he presents Drew with a gold medal in a box. Corbin says now that Kurt Angle is gone, RAW needs a new gold medalist, so he presents Drew with RAW's "gold medal of excellence." Drew says thanks, and says he was just doing what no one else on RAW was strong enough to do. Drew talks about seeing wrestlers in the back playing on their phone and just showing up to collect paychecks. Drew says he's reforming RAW in his image - strong and giving 110%. Drew cuts a promo on Finn Balor next, and he says he's going to break his spirit at TLC. Dolph Ziggler's music hits while Drew is talking, and Ziggler walks down to the ring. Ziggler gets on the mic and says Drew must have memory problems - because Dolph brought Drew to RAW and dominated with him. Ziggler complains about not being in Drew's highlight video and not being invited to this ceremony. Drew says the truth is Dolph was never invited because he doesn't meet the height requirement. Drew says they had a business relationship, but it's not working for him anymore. Drew says Ziggler's role was to get Drew in a prominent position, and Ziggler succeeded for once in his life because he is prominent on RAW now. Drew tells Ziggler to get lost, but Ziggler doesn't leave. Ziggler and Drew start throwing punches, and Ziggler hits the Zag Zag then leaves while Drew is down. Corbin tells Ziggler to stop on the ramp, and yells about Dolph ruining their night. Corbin says if Dolph wants a fight, he's got it, and it starts right now.

- Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler: Drew starts off strong and dumps Ziggler outside to the floor. Drew follows him out and carries Dolph up the ring steps to the apron, and he throws Dolph back into the ring. Back on the mat, Drew slams Dolph down by the hair and applies a shoulder lock. Dolph fights his way up with punches and chops, then he looks for a DDT, but Drew catches him and hits a Northern Lights Suplex. Drew rolls out to ringside and gets on a mic, and he talks trash to Dolph on the floor. Drew says he still like Dolph, so he's going to pretend that Dolph is Finn Balor. Drew picks up Dolph and repeatedly slams him into the ring apron and the fan barricade. Drew rolls Dolph back in the ring and follows him in. Drew toys with Dolph now and punches him down to the mat. Finn Balor comes out to the stage and distracts Drew. Finn watches from ringside, and Dolph starts to fight back with some kicks. Drew catches a kick attempt and hits his reverse Alabama Slam for a two count. Drew takes Dolph up to the top turnbuckle, but then he wastes some time posing for the fans. Drew looks for a superplex, but Dolph punches him off and then hits a tornado DDT off the middle rope. Drew gets up and charges at Dolph, but Dolph dodges him and throws him out to ringside. Dolph jumps down on Drew on the floor and pummels on him. Drew and Dolph brawl around ringside, and Drew gets the upper hand. Drew throws Dolph into the ring and the ref momentarily gets knocked down. While the ref's back is turned, Finn Balor dropkicks Drew into the fan barricade. The ref starts counting, and Drew gets back in the ring at his 9 count. Ziggler immediately hits a superkick for the three count.


Winner: Dolph Ziggler
 
Such a short lived partnership, but I guess it's reached it's natural conclusion quicker than anyone expected.
 
Drew has outgrown the E veteran and Dolph has midcard written all over him, so can't be hanging on to Drew who's going straight to the very top.
 
A touch disapointing though that the whole partnership was blown off with a match the same night.

It was strange the way this happened and it can only be due to the injury to Strowman.

Had strowman not been injured, Corbin v Braun would have been the sole focus but because of that injury, Drew has resorted to hiding behind Drew and feuding with multiple people

Glad the 2 are separate now and Drew can push on up the card where he deserves to be

Champion written all over him

Seems strange that they handed Drew his first main roster pinfall loss in a impromptu match with Ziggler on Raw, however I’m sure there will be another meeting between these two where Drew will go over clean, Dolph is a vital cog in the WWE machine but he’s the go to guy when they want to make someone look good, McIntyre on the other hand is being pushed all the way to the top.

I expect Drew to go over against Finn Balor at TLC and then beat Ziggler in their next meeting.

I think there was still mileage in the Ziggler/McIntyre alliance but what was said in the promo was basically true, Ziggler was used to get Drew into a good spot on Raw and now he’s proved what he can do and is the clear standout star of the partnership he doesn’t need Dolph anymore.

To my knowledge it was McIntyre himself who wanted his first loss to be to Ziggler. The two have enormous respect for each other and very much enjoyed their partnership.

I can see that and at least last night Drew got his revenge win where he looked much stronger in victory than Dolph did last week.
 
Quote Drew McIntyre comes out to the ring for an interview. Drew talks about his performance in WWE, and tells the fans to shut up when he talks. Drew talks about thinking he's better than everyone, and then Ziggler comes out to interrupt Their match is up next.
- Dolph Ziggler vs. Drew McIntyre: Dolph starts off strong off the opening bell, but Drew slows him down with some punches to the face and chops to the chest. Drew takes Dolph up to the top rope and hits a super back suplex for the three count. Ziggler falls out to ringside and Drew follows. Ziggler fights back and they get back in the ring. Ziggler wants a superkick, but he's too hurt and he collapses. Drew wastes some time taunting Dolph, and Ziggler comes back with a Zig Zag, and both men are down. They're slow to get up, and Dolph looks for the superkick, but Drew strikes first with the Claymore Kick for the three count.

Winner: Drew McIntyre
- After the match, Drew throws Ziggler into the ring post and beats him down on the ringside floor. Referees pull of Drew, but he comes back and hits a running dropkick on Ziggler against the ring apron.
 
Dolph made Drew look a main event player once again.
 
Drew got to shut up the show off. I think we will see a third match between them at least.

I would love to see a big feud with Seth and Drew. The 2 top guys in my opinion since they aren’t going to put the strap on Braun and Brock is a joke.

Think well see Ziggler help Finn during or after the match at TLC setting up a formal feud between the 2 that will lead to a PPV match which Drew will ultimately win and propel further up the card
