Cena shares a birthday with WWE Hall of Famer Tony Atlas, who turns 64 years old.
– Sheamus and Cesaro are looking to set the bar in Team Blue’s tag team division after being moved to SmackDown LIVE in the Superstar Shake-up last Tuesday. The Bar cut a pre-taped promo talking up their accomplishments and putting the tag team division of SmackDown LIVE on notice.
Behind-the-scenes, this was a last minute decision by WWE creative. The feeling now is that the move left Raw depleted on top tag teams and SmackDown a bit too heavy.
SmackDown now has The Bar, The Usos, The Bludgeon Brothers, The New Day, SAnitY, Rusev & Aiden English, and Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson.
Raw now has Bray Wyatt & Matt Hardy, Tyler Breeze & Fandango, Titus O’Neil & Apollo Crews, Heath Slater & Rhyno, Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre, The Authors of Pain, The Revival, and The Ascension.
WWE creative is now thinking about getting The Bar back on Raw by having them regain the vacant Raw Tag Team Championship this Friday at the Greatest Royal Rumble with a win over Wyatt and Hardy.
