What's the story?

Jason Jordan and Seth Rollins have been embroiled in a feud with Cesaro and Sheamus over the past few months, but since Rollins has entered the Elimination Chamber and Jordan has been ruled out of WrestleMania, it seems that there could be a new tag team stepping up to challenge the champions.

In case you didn't know...

Rollins and Jordan defeated Cesaro and Sheamus on Christmas Day to become Raw Tag Team Champions before the unlikely duo managed to win back the gold at The Royal Rumble after it was speculated that Jordan was struggling with an injury.

Since then, Rollins has lost his final opportunity at the Tag Team Championships when Jordan cost him the match after he had recruited Roman Reigns to help him win back the gold. This means that Rollins isn't allowed a future match for the titles, so there need to be new number one contenders crowned ahead of Elimination Chamber if WWE is hoping for the titles to be defended.

In recent weeks it seems that Reigns has been the main person going after Cesaro and Sheamus, but he will be inside the Chamber next Sunday night which means that he can't be the next person to challenge the Champions.

The heart of the matter

It seems that one tag team on the Raw roster that is picking up some steam right now is former NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival. The hard-hitting duo could be set to earn an opportunity at the Champions if WWE's recent tease is anything to go by.

“Picking up tremendous steam on The Road to WrestleMania, The Revival defeated former Raw Tag Team Champions Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson this past Monday night on Raw.
"Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson call themselves “Top Guys,” but they won’t fully convince the WWE Universe that they’re deserving of that moniker until they snare the Raw Tag Team Champions. Are reigning tandem titleholders Sheamus & Cesaro keeping a close eye on these throwback competitors?”

Is this WWE's way of telling the WWE Universe that Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson could be the stars to step into the Tag Team Championship picture heading into WrestleMania season?

What's next?

It is expected that Dash and Dawson will be named as the new number one contenders for the Tag Team Championships on the final Raw ahead of Elimination Chamber. It will be interesting to see how WWE will push the former NXT stars into the title picture on Monday night.


Author's take

The Revival should have been pushed to this level a long time ago, but it seems that injuries have kept them off TV over the past few months. The duo made quite the impact on NXT but failed to equalize on this on the main roster. Many fans have waited a long time for Dash and Dawson to finally be pushed into the title picture.
