Team Raw def. Team SmackDown LIVE in a 10-on-10 Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match

TORONTO – The ever-quarreling combination of Sheamus & Cesaro brought home a huge victory for Team Raw at Survivor Series, outlasting five of SmackDown LIVE’s elite tandems and emerging as the Sole Survivors in a jaw-dropping 10-on-10 Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match.

It was the one night of the year when Raw and SmackDown LIVE were pitted against one another for brand supremacy. From the word “go,” each tag team stood ready to fight tooth-and-nail until all of their opponents were pinned, disqualified, counted out or forced to submit. Only then would one brand be declared the winner.

Prior to the contest, both Enzo Amore & Big Cass and Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day vocalized their intentions to emerge victorious, though every tandem wore the mark of determination on their faces while making their way to the ring. Unfortunately, it appeared that Breezango took the start of the match too lightly, enabling Kofi Kingston to take advantage and quickly eliminate the fashion police with the Midnight Hour. Almost as lightning-fast, The Usos returned the favor, delivering a quick superkick on Kofi to score the follow-up pinfall and eliminate Raw’s team captains!

As the fast-paced showdown continued, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson laid waste to Zack Ryder to send Team SmackDown LIVE’s Hype Bros to the showers. American Alpha next rose to the occasion and eliminated Raw’s Shining Stars.

With both sides down to three teams, a brawl broke out, and the action quickly escalated both inside and outside the ring. Yet amid a rapid series of high-flying maneuvers from both brands, Raw’s Gallows & Anderson hit the Magic Killer on Jason Jordan to eliminate American Alpha. Then, when a subsequent mistake caused Gallows to get into a dispute with his own team, Team Blue’s Rhyno delivered a surprise Gore for the three-count. That celebration was also short-lived, as Raw’s Enzo & Big Cass took advantage of the commotion long enough to eliminate the SmackDown Tag Team Champions – only to be upended moments later by a superkick and Samoan Splash from The Usos.

The match came down to a knock-down, drag-out struggle between SmackDown LIVE’s Usos and Raw’s Sheamus & Cesaro. Though both tandems scored near-pinfalls on several occasions, the final moments of the contest saw Cesaro reverse Jey Uso’s Tequila Sunrise to lock in the Sharpshooter. Jimmy tried to break it up with a superkick, only to be intercepted by a brutal Brogue Kick from The Celtic Warrior, Trapped in the middle of the ring, Jey had no choice but to tap out, leaving Cesaro, Sheamus and Team Red victorious.

Though they continued to bicker throughout their team’s shining moment, there can be no arguement that Sheamus & Cesaro standing as the Sole Survivors was a huge coup for Raw in its struggle to prove itself as the superior brand.

Survivor Series 2016 Preview: Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown LIVE In A 10-on-10 Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match

The world will find out which tag team division is superior when Team Raw and Team SmackDown LIVE square off in a 10-on-10 Traditional Survivor Series Tag Team Elimination Match.

Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day will lead Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, Sheamus & Cesaro, Enzo Amore & Big Cass and The Shining Stars into battle against SmackDown Tag Team Champions Heath Slater & Rhyno, The Usos, American Alpha, The Hype Bros and Breezango.

Even though neither brand can claim to have a truly harmonious faction, both armies are full of firepower, and the potential for once-in-a-lifetime matchups is high.

The Traditional Elimination Match can only end when all of the tag teams belonging to a brand are eliminated. Elimination can occur by pinfall, submission, disqualification or count-out, and tag teams must leave the ringside area after one of their members has been eliminated.

What will happen when teams like Gallows & Anderson or Sheamus & Cesaro cross paths with the likes of Chad Gable & Jason Jordan or The Usos? Will The New Day and Slater & Rhyno meet up inside the ring?

Don’t miss the one night of the year when Raw battles SmackDown LIVE. The 30th annual Survivor Series airs live Sunday, Nov. 20, on the award-winning WWE Network, at a special start time of 7 ET/4 PT.

The Hype Bros & American Alpha def. The Ascension & The Vaudevillains

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Hype Bros & American Alpha delivered a high-impact offensive attack en route to defeating The Ascension & The Vaudevillians in a huge 8-Man Tag Team Match on No Mercy Kickoff.

This big matchup wasn’t announced until hours before the No Mercy Kickoff, but that didn’t stop the Superstars in the contest from delivering in an action-packed showdown. This isn’t the first time the teams of American Alpha & Hype Bros have battled on the same side in a large tag team clash, and it showed.

Mojo Rawley & Zack Ryder’s amped up style meshed well with Chad Gable & Jason Jordan’s athletic prowess, allowing the foursome to put the heat on their foes from the opening bell. Simply put, Konnor, Viktor, Simon Gotch & Aiden English could not keep up with the high-octane energy coming from their opponents.

After a red-hot start, The Hype Bros & American Alpha were grounded thanks to a well-executed game plan from The Ascension & Vaudevillains. However, once the action began to break down and competitors started hitting the ring left and right, Jordan & Gable took advantage of the mayhem by hitting Grand Amplitude on English to pick up the pinfall.

With The Hype Bros & American Alpha picking up the “w,” they now have momentum on their side and a much needed victory to elevate their respective standings in SmackDown LIVE’s competitive Tag Team division. Now the question is whether or not either duo can capitalize on their No Mercy Kickoff performance.

While American Alpha are hungry to get back into the SmackDown Tag Team Championship hunt, there is little doubt that the other three tandems are just as hungry. Considering their ambitions, will Chad Gable & Jason Jordan be able to co-exist with Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley? They had better, if they hope to overcome the dangerous combined forces of Konnor & Viktor and Aiden English & Simon Gotch.

The Usos, American Alpha & The Hype Bros def. Breezango, The Ascension & The Vaudevillains

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — After weeks of taking a backseat to the American Alpha hype train, The Usos reasserted themselves by earning the decisive pinfall in SummerSlam Kickoff’s opening 12-Man Tag Team Match. So why aren’t they smiling?

The win should, by any indication, have been a windfall moment for Jimmy & Jey, the longest tenured duo of a SmackDown Live Tag Team division that is almost entirely comprised of tandems that were formed in WWE NXT (Breezango being the sole exception). American Alpha has been by far the most heralded of the bunch, and the two-time WWE Tag Team Champion Usos were claiming as recently as last week that they weren’t quite ready, willing or Gable to cede the driver’s seat of the division.

So it’s understandable that the Slammy Award-heavy twins used this 12-Man Tag Team Match as an opportunity to make a statement, especially after Alpha scored the deciding pinfall in a similar content a few days earlier. They did so after a bout that erupted into chaos rather quickly, with each tandem looking to position themselves as Team Blue’s top team. At one point, The Ascension had cleared the ring until American Alpha sent them packing, and Aiden English of The Vaudevillains (who had taken the fateful Grand Amplitude on Tuesday) singlehandedly neutralized both grapplers.

When the action resumed, Zack Ryder was left to the mercy of Breezango, The Ascension and The Vaudevillains, who attempted to isolate the WrestleMania 32 miracle man from all 11 of his would-be saviors. After taking an artillery’s worth of offense, Ryder finally managed to land a neckbreaker on Konnor and reach Jimmy Uso, who was quickly stopped short by Tyler Breeze. Enter Jason Jordan, who delivered suplexes left and right until each Superstar rushed the ring to attack anyone and everyone who stood in his path.

When the dust cleared, Jordan and Gable managed to catch Simon Gotch in Grand Amplitude, only Jey Uso tagged himself in right before Gable could complete the maneuver. Jey swooped in with a Frog Splash to steal the pin for himself, clearly marking his territory for the benefit of anyone who may have forgotten.

So, perhaps the reason he wasn’t smiling was because he felt The Usos had to prove themselves all over again. Perhaps the reason Alpha wasn’t smiling was that it came at their expense.

The SummerSlam Kickoff just got much bigger.

In a return match from Tuesday’s SmackDown Live, The Usos, American Alpha & The Hype Bros will meet Breezango, The Ascension & The Vaudevillains in a gigantic 12-Man Tag Team Match on Sunday’s Kickoff.

The six duos lit up the blue brand earlier this week with a jaw-dropping bout that ended in victory for The Usos, American Alpha & The Hype Bros after Jason Jordan & Chad Gable connected with Grand Amplitude against The Vaudevillains’ Aiden English. Now, the 12 Superstars gear up for round two at The Biggest Event of the Summer.

SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan previously indicated that the vacuum left by championships lost to Raw during the Brand Extension Draft — presumably, WWE Tag Team Titles included — will be filled in the not-too-distant future. Could a strong performance on the Kickoff put one or more teams in the catbird seat as Team Blue’s upper management contemplates plans for the Tag Team division?

Don’t miss the massive 12-Man Tag Team Match on Sunday’s SummerSlam Kickoff, airing live on WWE Network at a special start time of 5 ET/2 PT. In addition to WWE Network, the Kickoff streams on, the WWE App, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+.
