WWE has announced a Raw Tag Team Championship three-way bout for WrestleMania 38 in April.
On last week’s (March 14) edition of WWE Raw, Raw Tag Team Champions RK-Bro accepted the Street Profits’ challenge for a title bout for WrestleMania. The following singles match between Riddle and Montez Ford was interrupted by Alpha Academy, who laid the duo out.
RK-Bro will now defend their title against both The Street Profits and Alpha Academy on WrestleMania 38 Sunday.
The WWE.com preview of the match reads:
At WrestleMania, RK-Bro will defend their newly reclaimed Raw Tag Team Championship in what is sure to be a highly explosive Triple Threat Match against The Street Profits and Alpha Academy.
Randy Orton & Riddle earned their second Raw Tag Team Title reign by jumping through hoops that included spelling, scooter contests and academic challenges, and they did so prior to defeating The Alpha Academy and Seth Rollins & Kevin Owens to claim the gold and punch their ticket to WrestleMania.
In retrospect, however, Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins had already positioned themselves for a showdown against the new titleholders at The Showcase of the Immortals. Prior to the title match, The Street Profits had defeated Orton & Riddle in a hard-fought clash. With that important win, the determined former Raw and SmackDown Tag Team Champions wasted little time informing the new titleholders that they indeed wanted the smoke at The Show of Shows.
Although The Viper was skeptical as to whether one victory earned Dawkins & Ford a title match after everything RK-Bro had been through, The Original Bro suggested that they should face them, and WWE’s Apex Predator soon agreed. During a subsequent one-on-one matchup pitting Riddle against Ford, though, Chad Gable & Otis took out both tag teams. It was later determined that the three tandems would settles things at The Showcase of the Immortals with the Raw Tag Team Titles on the line in an all-out free-for-all.
WrestleMania Sunday will also feature the Women’s Tag Team Championship four-way bout, with Carmella & Queen Zelina set to defend their gold against Liv Morgan & Rhea Ripley, Naomi & Sasha Banks and Natalya & Shayna Baszler.
