WWE News: Big Championship Match Added To Royal Rumble PPV
It was after Dean Ambrose’ injury on WWE Raw, last month that the officials were forced to come up with a name as his replacement. At that point, he and Seth Rollins were pursuing the tag team championships. Hence, it was decided that Jason Jordan will be teaming up with Rollins filling up the void of the Lunatic Fringe.
Just one week later, the newly formed team became the new championships dethroning The Bar on the Christmas edition of WWE Raw. This cemented their solid run on the Raw locker room, going forward. However, the rematch of the tag titles was due, and it was announced by the general manager, Kurt Angle.

After pledging for getting the championship match on the edition of WWE Raw, Kurt Angle declined the thoughts of Sheamus and Cesaro. He allowed them to claim the titles on January 28th. Following this, WWE.com came up with an official announcement that suggested that it is going to be the fourth championship match on the Royal Rumble night. Check out the updates:
“Destiny didn’t quite bring them together, but Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Jason Jordan are destined to be in for an incredible fight when they defend their newly-captured titles against former champions Cesaro & Sheamus at Royal Rumble.
Find out when the Raw Tag Team Titles are defended at Royal Rumble, streaming live on WWE Network on Sunday, Jan. 28, at a special start time of 7 ET/4 PT.”
This is going to be the first-ever defense of tag team championships by Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan. On the other hands, Sheamus and Cesaro will be on the verge to set a new record. Currently, they hold the record of capturing the Raw tag team titles (previously known as WWE tag team championships) on three different occasions.
