What’s the story?
Following their latest upset win over The Bar, on this week’s episode of Raw, Apollo and Titus O’Neil—collectively known as the Titus Worldwide, have challenged for Sheamus and Cesaro’s Raw Tag Team Titles.
In case you didn’t know…
During this year’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view in January, Sheamus and Cesaro finally put a rest to their long-term rivalry against Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan, when they once again defeated the duo of Rollins and Jordan in order to become four-time Raw Tag Team Champions.
During the build-up to their Royal Rumble tag team bout against Jordan and Rollins, The Bar had evidently faced off against the duo of Titus O’Neil and Apollo on several occasions over on the red brand, that is, Monday Night Raw.
The heart of the matter
On this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw, Apollo and Titus O’Neil defeated The Bar for a record third time, after having competed against them on four previous occasions and following their recent win over Sheamus and Cesaro, the Titus Worldwide have now earned themselves a shot at the Raw Tag Team Titles at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.
As noted, during a backstage interview with Mike Rome earlier today, Titus O’Neil stated that he and his tag team partner Apollo are challenging Sheamus and Cesaro for their Raw Tag Team Titles, this Sunday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Elimination Chamber pay-per-view will take place on the 28th of February, that is, this Sunday in Las Vegas and so far a total of five matches have been announced for the show. Here is the full match card for this year’s Elimination Chamber PPV:
Men’s Elimination Chamber match to crown a new WWE Universal Title #1 Contender:
John Cena vs. Elias vs. Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns vs. WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs. Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor
First-Ever Women's Elimination Chamber for the RAW Women's Title:
Bayley vs. Mandy Rose vs. Mickie James vs. Sonya Deville vs. Sasha Banks vs. Alexa Bliss (c)
RAW Tag Team Title Match:
Titus O'Neil and Apollo vs. Cesaro and Sheamus
Asuka vs. Nia Jax:
(If Jax wins, she's added to the Raw Women’s Title match at WrestleMania 34 to make it a Triple Threat with Asuka and the champion.)
Matt Hardy vs. Bray Wyatt
Ronda Rousey’s in-ring contract signing.
Personally, I think this will be the perfect opportunity for The Bar to gain revenge on the Titus Worldwide by retaining the Raw Tag Team Titles over them at the Elimination Chamber PPV.Published 20 Feb 2018, 22:13 IST
