Title Changes Hands On WWE Monday Night Raw

Should be easy to guess which…

WWE

On a night where Raw faced heavy television competition in the form of a potentially-clinching Game 5 of the NBA Finals, WWE counter-programmed by booking a title change during the show’s final hour.

The Revival are now officially two-time Raw Tag Team champions, after defeating titlists Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder, and fellow challengers The Usos, in a triple threat match in San Jose. Scott Dawson scored the pin on Ryder, after blind-tagging himself into the match off of Jey Uso, and stealing the pin after Jey hit his top rope splash.

Ryder and Hawkins’ reign ends at 64 days, having won the belts from Dawson and Dash Wilder on the WrestleMania 35 pre-show on April 7.

The original match was announced as Ryder and Hawkins defending against The Revival alone, but sometime Monday, The Usos were slotted into the match on WWE.com’s official rundown of the show.

The Revival, at one time earlier this year, reportedly refused to sign new contracts with WWE. Their respective deals expire in 2020, with Wilder’s reportedly having extra months tacked on, due to time off for injury.
