Cesaro & Sheamus have another chance at gold

After Cesaro & Sheamus remained as the sole survivors for the Raw tag team at Survivor Series, General Manager Mick Foley told Commissioner Stephanie McMahon that they would be getting a Tag Team Championship opportunity against The New Day on Raw which happens to be in Toronto as well. 

The teams had last faced off at Hell In A Cell, where Cesaro & Sheamus came extremely close to dethroning the second longest reigning tag team champions in WWE history. However, they ended up winning by disqualification instead.

While it makes for a good match, it is very unlikely that the titles will change hands on Raw. The New Day are currently at 454 days into their title reign. They are only 25 days away from beating Demolition’s record-setting title reign.

After “Ax” (real name William Reid Eadie) of Demolition sued WWE twice (once in the mid-90s for rights to the “Demolition” gimmick, and this year as part of the multiple lawsuits filed against WWE for head/brain injuries and concussions), it seems that WWE wanted New Day to break their record-setting title reign.

Earlier, WWE did not mention Demolition’s title reign. They set the standard as Paul London & Brian Kendrick’s 331-day title reign when it was known as the “WWE Tag Team Championship”. After they broke that record, they started mentioning Demolition’s reign, which was with the “World Tag Team Championship”.

By Roadblock: End Of The Line (which happens to be the next Raw exclusive Pay-Per-View), The New Day will have broken Demolition’s record by a few days. It is likely that they may drop the titles then.

It is possible that the Raw match tomorrow may end with a dusty finish so that Cesaro & Sheamus could be setup for a rematch against The New Day at Roadblock: End Of The Line. The two teams had also faced off the week before Hell In A Cell, where the odd European duo had succeeded.
