WWE TLC is on as we speak, we are pretty much an hour into the show as I type this. I’m Jordan Huie of the Overtimer giving you the coverage of the night as it happens! We are now about to witness the second of the night’s three tag team title matches. The Viking Raiders came out to give their open challenge, putting the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships on the line.
This proceeds their open challenge on Monday, which was answered by the Street Profits, in which the champs retained their titles in a couple of minutes. That night on Raw, the OC made their intentions known to go after the Viking Raiders, foreshadowing that they wanted to go after Erik and Ivar and reclaim the tag team titles.
You can see my recap of the segment that ensued below:
Viking Raiders out now for their open challenge. They say that last week they threw down the gauntlet and dared any team to try and take their championships. They dominated then and tonight they are prepared to destroy. So now… let the raid begin! Big chant of “War”, that’s kind of amazing, never heard them being that over on the main roster before. Ohhhh yeah they’re in Minnesota, that’s why, that’s adorable.
The OC’s music hit! Gallows and Anderson emerge, carrying their trophy. Call this Open Challenge lame like Minneapolis. This gets big heat. They say this isn’t about the tag team titles, it’s about you avenging your loss against us! And them defending their position as the Best Tag Team In The World.
Indeed, the OC did end up answering the call after all and the tag title match is now on as I type this. I will be sure to give you the results as they come!
