The Street Profits showed up on Monday Night Raw this week following the Super Showdown in Saudi Arabia match where they lost to Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy.

The deal on Monday night was that the Street Profits had to win or they would never get another Raw Tag Team Championship opportunity.

Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy vs. Street Profits on Raw

The match for the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship took place as the opening match on the show after the main opening.

By the end of the match, it was clear that tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw was setting up a great night for the fans.

The opening saw Brock Lesnar come out and when Paul Heyman talked smack about Drew McIntyre one too many times, McIntyre came out.

He then hit a Claymore Kick, taking down Lesnar. Brock sold it like a million bucks.

He went to the top of the ramp and McIntyre came out and hit two more Claymore Kicks and left Lesnar unconscious.

Then, it was time for the Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy to defend their Raw Tag Team Championship against the Street Profits.

If the Street Profits lost, they would never get another tag title shot.

The match was hard-fought and then the Authors of Pain came down to interfere for Rollins and Murphy.

However, the referee saw them and ordered them to leave. They wouldn’t and got in the referee’s face. With the referee dealing with the AOP, Kevin Owens ran in and hit the Stunner on Rollins.

The AOP chased off Owens, Angelo Dawkins tossed Buddy Murphy into the ringside barrier, and then Montez Ford went up top and hit a giant Five Star Frog Splash to pin Seth Rollins.

The Street Profits then took the WWE Tag Team Championship belts out and celebrated with the fans.

Aftermatch of Raw title match

Seth Rollins went into the back and was caught by Charly for an interview.

Rollins was mad and said that they would get their rematch against The Street Profits at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view and planned to win the titles back there.

Rollins then dropped the challenge.

He said that Kevin Owens can name the time, place, and match, and Rollins will fight him then and crucify him.

Expect that big match to happen at WrestleMania.

WWE Monday Night Raw airs at 8/7c on USA Network.
