We witnessed a shocking title change on last night’s episode of WWE Raw occurring at the main event. Previously, the scheduled match was about to happen for the United States title between AJ Styles and Braun Strowman. But that lineup changed as The OCs attacked Strowman during the title match. WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins ran out to the ring to provide him the backup. He also proposed that Braun Strowman should team up with him to feature in a tag team title match against Gallows & Anderson.
The officials sanctioned the match where Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman worked side by side despite their differences. AJ Styles was present at the ringside to provide distraction whom the monster bulldozed with a Running shoulder-block. Thereafter, he knocked out Anderson with a Running Powerslam whereas Rollins neutralized AJ with a Stomp. Strowman pinned Anderson to become the new WWE Raw tag team champions to shock the world. They celebrated to end last night’s show in the midst of big cheers from the crowd.
Last week, Post-Summerslam edition of WWE Raw started on an interesting note where we expected to get the next challenger of Seth Rollins. He ‘conquered the Conqueror’ at the biggest event of the summer to win the Universal Championship. Going forward, WWE was about to announce the next opponent for him and thereby the main event of Clash of Champions PPV.

The reports suggested that Braun Strowman might be standing next, in line for Seth Rollins to set up the contest. So he returned on last week’s WWE Raw saving him from a beatdown of AJ Styles and Co. aka The OCs. This, in turn, switched the storyline as AJ challenged Braun Strowman for a United States title match. WWE.com later confirmed the match stating the following,
“In a WWE.com interview following the physical altercation with The Monster Among Men, Styles challenged Strowman to a match next week, where the United States Title will be on the line. Strowman accepted the challenge via Twitter. Will Strowman soon wear WWE’s star-spangled title around his waist, or are The O.C. looking to set a trap for the battle-ready behemoth? Don’t miss Raw this Monday night, live at 8/7 C on USA Network.”
But that match turned out to be happening with a different lineup in the main event of WWE Raw. Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman teamed up to come out of the show as the new tag team champions.
