This week’s episode of Monday Night Raw featured a tag team battle royal to determine who would be challenging Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt for the Raw Tag Team Championship at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view.
The B-Team (Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas) won the match but it seemed like the team of Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler were the favorites going in. Instead, their tag team title hopes were dashed when Ziggler was the first to be eliminated from the match.
For whatever it’s worth, the feeling in WWE is that McIntyre will be getting a big singles push sooner than later. Following the battle royal, Renee Young interviewed the duo and Ziggler did all of the talking. McIntyre stood silent and chose not to say anything but some fans have looked at this post-match interview as a sign that McIntyre will be turning soon on his tag team partner.
Check out the video below. When you watch this, keep in mind that Vince McMahon absolutely loves McIntyre and he is looked at as someone that could main event a WrestleMania in 2-3 years.
I think it’s widely expected by fans that McIntyre and Ziggler will split up but it looks like the split could happen much sooner than most of us expected.
