New RAW Tag Team Title number one contenders have emerged on the latest episode of the red brand.
The latest edition of Monday Night RAW opened with an over the top rope Battle Royal to determine new challengers for RAW Tag Team Champions AJ Syles and Omos.
While the champions watched along on commentary, RK-Bro, The New Day, The Viking Raiders, Mace & T-Bar and Lince Dorado and John Morrison clashed to earn a title shot. Dorado and Morrison were the sole representatives for their teams as their partners were injured. Although The Miz took up residence at ringside in a wheel chair.
Dorado was eliminated by Morrison after a helping hand from his new ‘drip stick,’ before Mace and T-Bar saw off ‘Johnny Drip Drip.’ T-Bar and Mace were the next team eliminated, and Riddle soon followed suit after a flying knee by Xavier Woods, while Erik saw off Woods shortly after.
Riddle ran back in to try and help his partner, leading to Kofi Kingston being eliminated. However, while Orton had his back tuned the Viking Raiders threw him over the top rope.
With that the new RAW Tag Team Title number one contenders were crowned.

AJ Styles and Omos have held the RAW Tag Team Titles since defeating The New Day at WrestleMania 37.
A feat made even more impressive by the fact it was Omos’ first match in WWE.
It is currently unclear when the Viking Raiders will get their hard-earned shot at the titles.
