WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
THE CHARISMA CODE (c) VS CELTIC THUNDER
The tag team division has given a major shakeup with the split into two different championship belts now occurring and new teams coming together. An example of these two new teams are in this match, The Charisma Code and Celtic Thunder. The Charisma Code created a major buzz when they knocked off the most successful tag team in the history of Universe Mode when they defeated The Shield at Extreme Rules. The ‘Code came together after a mutual agreement that they were going to take over RAW after being drafted from Smackdown. These two all stars eventually gravitated to the tag team title picture and were immediately successful in their venture to gold.
Rob Van Dam (RVD) and Sheamus have a mutual respect for one another, both men having decent success throughout Universe Mode but find them selves stuck in a difficult situation on RAW. The singles competition has been overloaded with an abundance of top tier talent, because of this Sheamus and RVD have slipped down the ranks of the contendership for singles championship gold. Sheamus and RVD have come together to tackle the tag team division, a division thats arguably lacking in teams on Monday Nights.
The signs weren’t great for these two fan favourites as they immediately lost their first match up as a team against the very team they face at Payback the Charisma Code. Christian and Jericho have begun to hold a dominant grip on the division on RAW, after dispatching The Shield, it looks as though The Charisma Code are on the verge of holding the tag team championships for a long time. However, Sheamus and RVD bounced back on RAW after to many would say being handed an opportunity to be in the number one contenders match for the tag team titles against Truth & Consequences. RVD and Sheamus would defeat T&C and would move on to earn their rematch against the Charisma Code at Payback.
Can the new dubbed “Celtic Thunder” become the faces of the tag team division as they look to battle the unforgiving Charisma Code at Payback?
