Quote We go backstage where Kurt Angle is decorating a Christmas tree. Jason Jordan walks in and the fans boo. Seth Rollins walks in next. Jordan and Rollins both want Samoa Joe tonight. Angle says before they take on Joe, they need to deal with The Bar first. Rollins and Jordan get in each other's faces, and Jordan complains about having to work a tag match. Angle says his decision stands, and Jordan and Rollins will face Cesaro and Sheamus tonight for the RAW Tag Team Titles. Jordan and Rollins leave, then Roman Reigns walks in. Angle tells him that Joe is all his tonight, and Angle makes it a Championship match.
 
 
We see Seth Rollins backstage watching in approval on a monitor as Joe retreats up the ramp. Jason Jordan walks in, and Rollins says he's only doing this because he owes Kurt a favor, and he wants a piece of Cesaro and Sheamus. Rollins tells Jordan to bring his A game and listen to him. Jordan says he makes a good replacement for Ambrose, but Rollins says he'll never be Dean Ambrose. Jordan says he'll be better, and walks off.
 
 
The Bar (c) vs. Seth Rollins & Jason Jordan: Sheamus and Cesaro's Tag Team Titles are on the line in this one. Sheamus and Jordan start off, and Jordan overpowers him and slams him. Sheamus fires back with an elbow to the face, then Cesaro tags in. They briefly double team Jordan, until Rollins runs in and breaks it up. Rollins hits a slingblade on Cesaro and sends him to the floor. Rollins hits a suicide dive on both Cesaro and Rollins at ringside. Sheamus and Rollins now go at it in the ring and Sheamus gets the upper hand. Cesaro tags in and hits a leg drop on Rollins for a two count. Sheamus tags back in quickly and punishes Rollins more. Sheamus tosses Rollins out to the apron and distracts the ref, allowing Cesaro to hit a cheap shot on Rollins. Rollins briefly fights off The Bar, but they double team him and Jordan runs in and levels Sheamus. Rollins finally gets the tag to Jordan, and Jordan starts cleaning house. Jordan beats Sheamus into the corner and hits a running spear. Jordan hits a suplex on Sheamus for a near-fall. He goes for another suplex, but Cesaro breaks it up. Sheamus drops Jordan with a clothesline, then Cesaro tags in for another double team move. Cesaro goes for the Sharpshooter and locks it in on Jordan. Rollins and Sheamus go at it, and Cesaro breaks the hold to deal with Rollins. Cesaro picks up Jordan and Sheamus hits a flying clothesline off the top. Rollins runs in again and dropsCesaro, but then Sheamus hits a BRogue Kick on Rollins. Sheamus then locks the Cloverleaf in on Jordan. Jordan reaches the ropes to break the hold. Sheamus picks up Jordan and Cesaro goes up top for the double team, but Rollins knocks off Cesaro. Sheamus hits the white Noise on Jordan by himself. The fight spills out to ringside where Sheamus goes into the steel ring steps, and Cesaro hits an uppercut on Rollins. Sheamus rolls back in the ring, and Jordan immediately drops him for the win.

Winners & new Tag Team Champions: Seth Rollins & Jason Jordan

- The Bar recovers on the floor as Rollins and Jordan celebrate with their new Title belts. The last RAW of 2017 goes off the air as Rollins and Jordan hold their Tag Titles in the air.

Chicago is one of the most markish crowds in the world, but the title change got a massive reaction.
 
Looks like creative have changed their mind on turning Jordan by pairing him with someone very popular to help his pops, which it actually did greatly.
 
I wouldn't have them on the same page though. Have them squable and disagree all the time like when Cesaro/Sheamus were first put together by Mick Foley, but when in a match scenario they work on the same page just for that time.

I'm still certain he's going to turn; they've invested months in this heel run and I don't see them pulling out of it now, especially after what Jordan said about near universal fan favourite Dean Ambrose.

He'll turn heel they'll just use this as a way to do it. I can't see them holding the titles for more than or month or so.

I think this is actually quite a good move for Jordan's story going forward and possibly even further cements his heel turn in the future. I can see the success of winning the tag titles going to his head and him getting too big for his boots.

This could still easily result in a heel turn for Jordan, I also wonder if the plan is for a Kurt Angle vs Seth Rollins match at some point as this match had been previously rumoured and this could all be part of the set up.

Dirt sheets are suggesting that WWE have temporarily pulled the plug on the Jason Jordan heel turn as they needed someone to fill the Raw babyface void left by Ambrose, seems a bizarre choice to go with Jordan for that as he’s so universally disliked, it will be hard to get fans to change their opinion of him now. Shame Neville hasn’t ironed out his differences with WWE yet as he would have been a great choice to return as a face and team with Rollins to win the tag straps.

@Flech - If that's true that they've nixed the Jordan heel turn to fill the babyface void, I'll be really disappointed.

It would be much better if Jordan acted like an arsehole throughout their reign. Just feuls the fire for a super heel turn.

It would surprise me to see if this is WWE's way of swerving us again to be honest. Jordan is primed for a heel turn...and them releasing to the dirt sheet's in been temporarily held up due to Ambrose being out for a while could just mean he will turn heel just as quick and a name will return to fill the face void.....Miz anyone?

Absolutely agree. E have done good work recently in making Jason Jordan hated. So to forget it all and have him as a whiter than white babyface would suck.
 
Quote After Jason Jordan and Seth Rollins won the RAW Tag Team Titles this past Monday night, it seems that the gradual heel turn for Jordan has been called off, per a report from Rajah. With Ambrose being injured the company needed to elevate someone up to his level to fill the void. The decision was made to have Jordan fill that role instead of continuing his “whiny face turns heel” progression.
 
Jordan needs to continue saying Dad when sucking up and calling him Kurt when he doesn't get his own way.
 
They also need to make sure they don't have Rollins kissing his ass.

i also agree, however part of me thinks he would become more popular as a result and then when the heel turn happens - he will get ace reactions - similar to what they get with Joe and what they were getting for Strowman.

Maybe the Heel/Face thing is changing and they are just letting the crowd pick and choose who they cheer for regardless of what character they portray because everyone can see the edginess Jordans character had recently and then they stick the title on him with one of the biggest babyfaces in the company

The heel turn dynamic has changed recently, largely because of the Roman Reigns effect. People don't cheer or boo faces or heels anymore, they cheer or boo booking decisions that they agree or disagree with. As such there's a fair worry that turning Jordan heel too early will turn him face.

Perils of post kayfabe.

It's why Rawley took so long to turn and why Big Cass turned so early. If you do it when the fans want it then it's a failure.
