- As noted, this week's RAW saw The B Team become the new #1 contenders to RAW Tag Team Champions Bray Wyatt & Matt Hardy by winning a Tag Team Battle Royal over The Revival, The Ascension, Heath Slater & Rhyno, Titus Worldwide, Drew McIntyre & Dolph Ziggler and Breezango. McIntyre & Ziggler attacked other teams on their way out of the ring after being eliminated early on.
Above is post-match video of Renee Young asking McIntyre & Ziggler about their actions after being eliminated. Ziggler says he felt like they turned a page over the past few weeks but somehow, they lost sight of their goal in the Battle Royal. Ziggler goes on and admits he blew it but says they will have their day very soon. Ziggler says that is a guarantee from him and the psychopath standing next to him.
