RAW Tag Team Championship Match
Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre vs. Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose
What we learned: If we didn’t already know this, we learned here that these four guys are four of the best performers in the world, and this match was simply fantastic. This is what tag team wrestling is all about.
From start to finish, this show-stealer was must-see television. It had all the elements of a classic tag match and the pace was frenetic at times. Seth Rollins took a lot of the punishment here as Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre executed the classic strategy of isolating their opponent to their side of the ring in the first half of the match. Dean Ambrose was itching to get in the ring, and once he did, things went to an entirely different level.
In what could be the best 10 minutes of tag team wrestling this year in WWE, we got to witness these four go back and forth in and out of the ring. There were too many near-falls to keep track of and the execution of each and every spot was done to near-perfection. We know that Seth Rollins and Dolph Ziggler have great chemistry in the ring together, but adding Dean Ambrose and Drew McIntyre to the mix only added to it. The ending was a bit of a surprise to me as I thought that Ambrose and Rollins would walk out with the gold, but it wasn’t to be on this night.
What’s next: Given what’s gone on between these two teams recently, I certainly don’t think this is going to be the last time we see this matchup. And seriously, who wouldn’t want to see more of this?
