At WrestleMania, The Bar is heading to a whole new level. That’s because Raw Tag Team Champions Sheamus & Cesaro will be putting their illustrious titles on the line against Braun Strowman and a partner of his choosing.
For the past year, Cesaro & Sheamus have firmly established themselves as Raw’s premiere tag team, overcoming every conceivable combination prior to The Showcase of the Immortals. The brash champions received a rude awakening, however, when they set out to battle The Miztourage on Raw, as Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel were suddenly joined by The Revival, Heath Slater & Rhyno, Titus Worldwide and Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, and the resulting confrontation produced an all-out brawl that The Bar narrowly escaped.
When Sheamus & Cesaro took issue with Kurt Angle, the General Manager decided to establish an impromptu Raw Tag Team Battle Royal to determine the titleholder’s opponents for The Grandest Stage of Them All. However, Angle almost certainly wasn’t counting on the Braun Strowman factor when he made the match, and The Monster Among Men shockingly emerged to punch his ticket to WrestleMania by reigning supreme over every tandem in the ring.
The following week, amidst a sea of speculation, Angle announced he would grant Strowman a Raw Tag Team Championship opportunity at WrestleMania as a result of winning the Battle Royal, provided the Superstar could find a tag team partner.
The Monster Among Men has wreaked has havoc on everybody and everything from the moment he came to Monday Night Raw, but who will the one-man wrecking crew select to be his partner? With the glory of a potential WrestleMania moment hanging in the balance, will The Gift of Destruction be willing to work together with anyone? Will The Bar once again rise to the occasion?
Don’t miss WrestleMania, Sunday, April 8, at a special start time of 7 ET/4 PT, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network!
