WWE has been teasing the possibility of a title change before Survivor Series this coming Sunday night, booking two title matches for this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, the go home show for the big pay-per-view.
In the first, The New Day attempted to successfully defend the Raw tag team titles against Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander of The Hurt Business. This after the two defeated Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston in a non-title match.
It looked close a few times:
There were multiple near falls, with Woods and Kingston saving each other time and time again, the story of the match the fact that they simply would not give up despite everything being thrown at them. In the end, Kingston hit Trouble in Paradise and Woods followed it up with Daybreak to score the pinfall.
The New Day are still your Raw tag team champions, and will still be wrestling The Street Profits at Survivor Series.
