It was announced during Monday’s live edition of WWE RAW in Toronto, Ontario, Canada that at this Sunday’s WWE Night Of Champions pay-per-view there will be an official “Kickoff Show” pre-show prior to the pay-per-view, which will feature what was promoted as a “Tag-Team Turmoil” match.
The match will involve the following tag-teams battling in an elimination style match, where the winners will receive a WWE Tag-Team Championship shot at the current title-holders, Shield members Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, later that night during the actual live pay-per-view.
* Tons Of Funk
* The Real Americans
* The Prime Time Players
* The Usos
As noted above, the winner of the pre-show match will face Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns for the tag-team titles on the live pay-per-view. It should be noted that the talk over the weekend was that Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins would defend the titles against either the Primetime Players or The Big Show and R-Truth. Truth has been filling in for Henry on the house shows but the original plan was for The Primetime Players vs. The Shield. We’ll see if that is still the case come this Sunday night.
