It was previously reported that last night’s WrestleMania 34 Fallout Episode of RAW saw new RAW Tag Team Champions Braun Strowman & 10 year old Nicholas relinquish the RAW Tag Team titles. As reported, the storyline was that Nicholas had to go to school and can’t defend the belts with Braun. It was also previously reported that Nicholas is the son of WWE Official John Cone.
RAW General Manager Kurt Angle then announced that there will be a set of Tag Team Eliminator Matches to determine who will face The Bar for the vacant RAW Tag Team Titles at WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble event on Friday, April 27th from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The first match saw The Revival (Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder) defeat Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson while the second match saw Matt Hardy & Bray Wyatt defeat Titus Worldwide (Apollo & Titus O’Neil). Next week’s RAW will see Matt Hardy & Bray Wyatt take on The Revival (Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder) with the winners facing The Bar in Saudi Arabia.
It was also previously announced that WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will be defending the WWE Universal Title against Roman Reigns in a Steel Cage Match. It was also announced that new WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins will be defending the WWE Intercontinental Title in a Fatal Four Way Ladder Match against Finn Balor, former Intercontinental Champion The Miz and the newly returned WWE Superstar Samoa Joe.
