- As noted, RAW Tag Team Champions The Bar prevented The Revival from earning a WrestleMania 34 title shot on last night's RAW by defeating them in a non-title match. WWE has been pushing the idea that there are no teams left to face Cesaro and Sheamus because they have defeated the rest of the division. PWInsider reports that word going around at RAW said that the current plan is for The Bar to defend against a new tag team that is "not currently a team" at WrestleMania.
No word yet on who the mystery team might be but we will keep you updated. For those who missed it, above is video from last night's win over The Revival.
