Raw tag team titles to be decided at The Greatest Royal Rumble

Woken Warriors

On a backstage segment on Raw, Braun Strowman and his partner Nicholas relinquished the WWE Raw tag team titles, citing Nicholas' scheduling commitments to school.

The Bar (Sheamus and Cesaro) attempted to simply get the titles they lost at WrestleMania back, but general manager Kurt Angle announced two matches would take place on Raw with the winning teams advancing to a match on Raw next week. The winner next week will face The Bar at The Greatest Royal Rumble for the titles on Friday, April 27th.

In the first match, The Revival defeated Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows after hitting the Shatter Machine on Anderson for the pin. In the second match, Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt teamed up to defeat Titus O'Neil and Apollo after hitting Sister Abigail into the Twist of Fate.

The Greatest Royal Rumble is a WWE Network special airing live from Saudi Arabia, headlined by a 50-man Royal Rumble, Universal Champion Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns in a steel cage match, John Cena vs. Triple H, and more. Originally, The Bar was set to defend the tag titles against Matt and Jeff Hardy on the show.
