A few weeks ago Braun Strowman and Seth Rollins defeated The OC (Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson for the Raw Tag Team Titles. This continues the puzzling way of how the WWE books the tag team division on Raw the company has never really cared about properly giving a hot feud to the tag team division. From The Revival to The OC to the short lived tag team of Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy the division hasn't had a proper direction for years. It is an unfortunate side effect of how little Vince McMahon believes in the tag team division and that he hasn't in nearly two decades. Even though the talent level is just as high as it was back in the early part of the decade but it seems like they aren't believed in as much as they use to be.
The reason for this title is that I think that when two people that have never teamed together before not only defeat the tag team champions, but win the tag team titles from a well respected team. Now don't get me wrong one loss will not kill a tag team but if it happens often enough it could kill a lot of the credibility that a team has. Since they debuted there has been a lot of ups and downs for Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson recently have regained some credibility that they had lost in the past. However, losing to Strowman & Rollins does show just how undervalued the tag team division is, because when a team has chemistry and can work well together that is made such a big deal in matches with The Revival and The Uso's. But then you see Strowman & Rollins team together once and win with no chemistry.
In my opinion, what is the point of having a division if you are just going to give the tag titles to a non team. I know that this could be win it and lose it right back to The OC. Simply put them having this title change seems like an unnecessary addition to the developing rivalry between Rollins and Strowman. This is lazy booking as there is a division for a reason and this like a slap in the face to the actual teams that the company has. Unless this helps elevate an actual team when they win the titles then I will eat my words, until then I hate this booking style, because it forces WWE to push all the teams in Raw's division to the background which is pointless as you are paying people to sit back instead of just allowing them to do what they are being paid to do.
