WWE Raw Preview can’t help but wonder if the WWE will allow two titles to change hand on Raw’s Go Home Survivor Series episode.
It seems possible given how hard the Hurt Business has been pushed lately, and they’ve been one of the best things on Raw for some time.
The problem is WWE Creative has worked so hard to push a matchup between the New Day and Street Profits at Survivor Series, it’s hard to imagine them throwing a wrench into the works now.
But that’s what could happen when Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin take the New Day on tonight for the Raw Tag Team Championship.
Passing of the torch?
For argument’s sake, if the New Day loses, it could be touted as a passing of the torch moment to a new faction.
It seems kind of ridiculous in a way to think like that given Shelton Benjamin’s lengthy career, but when we look at how he was practically discarded for years and Alexander being an up and comer it makes sense to a degree.
The New Day are a fun tag team, but we’ve seen them as tag champions so often it’s become boring when they win anymore.
It’s more a testament to the WWE’s abysmal tag team division over the years than anything that there’s only a small handful of teams to compete against each other.
This isn’t meant to take anything away from the New Day as Kingston, Woods, and Big E are awesome performers, but lack of different competition often leads to a meh attitude.
It’s similar to the WWE in the early 80s when they had four or five teams and we saw them face off every Saturday Night’s Main Event.
Hurt Business wins
As much as they’ve touted their match at Survivor Series, we expect the New Day to lose and the Hurt Business to add more gold to their faction.
While the New Day and Street Profits match wouldn’t been a fun one between friends, the Hurt Business adds a whole other element to the match and helps raise their brand.
It’d be cool to see them rewarded with two of the three main championship on Raw for all of their hard work over the months.
Plus, WWE Raw Preview thinks heel tag teams can be so much more fun when they’re allowed to play as it amps up the competition element to a whole other level.
