Seth Rollins And Buddy Murphy Crowned RAW Tag Team Champions

Seth Rollins And Buddy Murphy Crowned RAW Tag Team Champions
Tonight's RAW saw The "Monday Night Messiah" Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy defeat The Viking Raiders to become the new RAW Tag Team Champions.

The title match took place on tonight's RAW after Rollins issued the challenge earlier in the show.

The champions overpowered Murphy early on. When the Authors of Pain tried to interfere, Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe fought them off and the duos brawled into the crowd. A splash from Rollins onto Erik earned the Architect a two count. Murphy and Rollins took control but Erik rocked Murphy with a nasty knee to the head. Ivar floored Murphy with a clothesline but Rollins broke up the Viking Experience. The champion dove onto both Rollins and Murphy. Rollins broke up the pin after a Viking Experience.

Murphy and Rollins double powerbombed Ivar for a near fall. Rollins shoved Ivar off the top rope and distracted Erik. The "Monday Night Messiah" hit a Stomp on Erik onto the apron and Murphy pinned Erik to win the match and the titles.

This is the first reign for Rollins and Murphy together, but Rollins is now a six-time tag team champion. Erik and Ivar won the titles back on the October 14 RAW, by defeating Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler.

Below are a few shots from tonight's title change at the INTRUST Arena in Wichita, Kansas:
