4 Things WWE made clear on RAW (19 August 2019)
RAW produced a superb show this week as it was an action-packed episode with some astounding bouts. After a great show last week, WWE certainly managed to continue their good run. In all honesty, the three-hour show has become enjoyable in recent weeks and it could be the Paul Heyman effect.
Since King of Ring began this week, two matches of the tournament took place on RAW. Cedric Alexander and Samoa Joe won their respective first-round matches. The Women's Tag-Team champions Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross beat Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose, while Roman Reigns defeated Dolph Ziggler.
Sasha Banks assaulted an injured Natalya again. Furthermore, Randy Orton dismantled The New Day after joining hands with The Revival. Interestingly, the RAW Tag-Team Titles changed hands as Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman won the twin belts. The Fiend showed up and attacked the WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler.
Let's discuss four things WWE made clear on the Red Brand this week.
#4 We will see the Women's Tag-Team Titles regularly
Since winning the Women's Tag Team Titles two weeks ago, Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross have been impressive. Unlike the previous champions, Bliss and Cross are proving to be fighting champions. They faced the team of Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville on RAW this week as the champions were victorious.
When the Women's Tag-Team Titles were introduced earlier this year, the anticipation was high. However, the IIconics had a substandard title reign as they didn't defend the belts regularly. Billie Kay and Peyton didn't show up on RAW and SmackDown Live every week. As a matter of fact, they never put the titles on the line in a pay-per-view following their victory at WrestleMania 35.
After winning the titles, Bliss and Cross already put the belts on the line at SummerSlam. Last week, they defended the belts against the Kabuki Warriors, while they faced Fire & Desire in a non-title match this week. It's safe to say that the twin belts will be defended regularly and we will see the Women's Tag Team Champions every week.
