As we head into the Royal Rumble, the current Raw Tag Team Champions are none other than the pairing of Bobby Roode and Chad Gable. Both men have plenty of experience from being in tag teams, due to Roode's involvement in Impact Wrestling as Beer Money Inc and Team Canada as well as Chad Gable's stints with American Alpha, along with teaming up with Shelton Benjamin.

The speculation surrounding the wrestling world is that the long term idea for the team of Roode and Gable is to eventually split them up with Roode turning heel. This might possibly be the reason why they are the current champions, as it seems as if WWE want to give them enough credibility before pulling the trigger on Roode's potential heel turn.

There are many tag teams on Raw that have what it takes to take the Raw Tag Team title belts away from Roode and Gable, so here are 5 tag teams that should dethrone them to become the new Raw Tag Team Champions.

Funnily enough, AOP was the tag team that Roode and Gable faced that led to the newly formed team becoming the new Raw Tag Team Champions on the December, 10th 2018 edition of Raw in a Three-On-Two Handicap match as AOP teamed up with their current manager, Drake Maverick. It was a shocking decision for some, as the entire WWE Universe had expected AOP to retain.

But the fact that Maverick was the man to take the pinfall suggests that creative did not want Akam and Rezar to look weak. They have also yet to gain their rematches for the tag team titles, which shows that AOP may be the next team in line to regain the Raw Tag Team Championships against Roode and Gable.

AOP only held the titles in their first reign for 35 days, but they have proven that they can run a Tag Team division as we have previously seen over in NXT due to the fact that they were not only winners of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic 2016, but they were also former NXT Tag Team Champions.

Akam and Rezar are more than capable of putting on fantastic matches, as we've seen during their bouts with The Revival and #DIY. Seeing AOP regain the titles wouldn't be a bad decision at all, as we could see them get the long title reign that they may need to establish themselves on Raw.
