Very good match. Definitely gets the match of the night vote from me.

The break up of them post match and them being added to the same Survivor Series team, turned it up another notch.

Going to be very interesting seeing how they are booked to co exist for the good of the brand, when they would rather batter eachother.

my only issue with this is it's being wasted as a feud over nothing when this could be a money title programme.

it will be interesting to see how this affects the balance of the match, and might be used as the reason for Smackdown to win before they continue the feud on Raw.

I don't see it as wasted. I imagine something will happen sunday to make them physical eachother and then we have a good fued in the run up to Royal Rumble time.
 
Quote Finn Balor and Samoa Joe vs. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson: Balor and Joe argue before the match, and as the opening bell rings Anderson gets a cheap shot on Balor due to the distraction. Balor comes back and tags in Joe, and they take control the match early on. Balor comes back in and works over Anderson until Gallows runs in. Joe runs in and drops Gallows, and it appears Balor and Joe are doing well as a team. Balor and Joe double team Anderson now and then Balor knocks Anderson to the outside. Back in the ring, Balor geos up top but Anderson crotches him on the top rope with the assist from Gallows. Gallows tags in and they turn things around on Balor. Gallows puts the boots to Balor and tries to keep him grounded. Gallows drops some elbows on Balor before tagging Anderson back in for some double teaming n the corner. Balor tries to fight up, but Anderson drops him with an elbow to the face for a two count. Anderson keeps Balor grounded and then hits a spinebuster. Balor finally breaks away and makes the hot tag to Joe. Joe runs in and unloads offense on Anderson. Joe hits an atomic drop, a big kick, then a senton on Anderson. Joe hits a shot on Gallows on the apron, then turns his attention back to Anderson before tagging in Balor. Joe throws Gallows to the floor as Balor climbs to the top rope. Balor comes off the top with a boot to Gallows, while Joe drops Anderson with a suplex. Joe hits a dive on Gallows on the floor, while in the ring Balor hits the Coup De Grace on Anderson for the three count.

Winners: Finn Balor and Samoa Joe

- Balor celebrates the win after the match, but Joe doesn't stick around.

I'm surprised they were booked so much on the same page and even picked up the win.
 
They argued a little but for the most part they got along for the good of Raw, which didn't further their own storyline.

nothing really happened at Survivor Series to further this.

the feud is due to continue, I saw a tweet by Samoa Joe prior to Raw starting saying about it continuing, so Brock needs to hurry up and lose the Universal Championship so these guys could be feuding over the title or a title opportunity.

Yeah I expected something to happen to build to their Raw match, instead of nothing being booked.
 
Quote Finn Balor vs. Samoa Joe: The opening bell sounds and Joe gets right to business with right hands on Balor. He backs Balor in to the corner, but Balor fights back with kicks. Joe shuts Balor down with an elbow to the face, then he works on keeping Finn grounded. Joe sits up on the top turnbuckle, but Balor jumps up and kicks Joe in the head. Joe falls all the way down to the ringside floor, and Balor follows up with a big suicide swanton bomb on him. Back in the ring, Balor tees off on Joe with a series of kicks. Joe manages to drop Balor out to the ringside floor and he immediately follows up with a big suicide dive. Back in the ring, Joe goes for the Rock Bottom but Balor blocks it. Joe fires back with a chop to the chest, and Balor answers with a Sling Blade. Balor goes for a running dropkick, but Joe side-steps it and hits a senton bomb for a two count. Joe locks in the Coquina Clutch but Balor escapes and hits a stomp on Joe. Balor dropkicks Joe into the corner then climbs up top. Joe stops Balor and pulls him down, then locks Balor in the Coquina Clutch again. Balor goes to sleep and Joe wins via TKO.

Winner: Samoa Joe

The match seemed rushed. It could have done with being given much more time.
 
I would have built up tension between them a few more weeks before they got in the ring too.
