It’s been a crazy night for title changes at WWE’s SummerSlam pay per view. Having already seen new Women’s, Cruiserweight and Smackdown Live Tag Team Champions, fans have had plenty of news to soft through. Joining that band of champions is the unlikely team of Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins – who are the new Raw Tag Team Champions.
The pair captured the belts from Sheamus and Cesaro, who have been constant figures at the top of the Raw tag team division.
Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose reunited this past week on Monday Night Raw to take on the ex-champions. Having been the subject of various beat downs from the Raw tag team champions, the pair eventually put aside their differences to try and put an end to the ongoing situation.
Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins were previously members of The Shield, a monstrously popular stable that dominated WWE during 2014. Along with Roman Reigns, the stable became hugely popular with WWE audiences as they sought to assert their presence. During that run, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns captured the WWE tag team championships as a team. Because The Shield didn’t utilize the Freebird rule, Dean Ambrose was never classed as a Champion. It marks the first time that he has held tag team gold in WWE.
The victory also means that Dean Ambrose joins a very exclusive WWE club – the Grand Slam Championship Club. It means that Dean Ambrose has held all four major championships in modern WWE. These include;
- WWE Championship/ WWE Universal Championship.
- Intercontinental Championship.
- WWE United States Championship.
- WWE Raw/Smackdown Live Tag Team Championship.
We want to congratulate him on this achievement – something that very few other WWE Superstars have achieved.
Are you happy to see Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins as the new champions? Who should challenge them first?
