Jason Jordan made history this week.
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Rosemont, IL at the Allstate Arena on the USA Network, Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan defeated Sheamus and Cesaro to win the Raw Tag Team Titles.
As a result of winning this title, Jordan achieved a major accomplishment. He was the first man to win all three WWE Tag Team Titles including the NXT, SmackDown, and Raw Championships.
Jordan was previously teamed up with Chad Gable as American Alpha where the two were outstanding standouts in both NXT and on the main roster.
They picked up the NXT Tag Team Championships while in NXT and later on after they were drafted to SmackDown Live, they picked up with SmackDown Tag Team Championships.
After WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle was named the new General Manager of Monday Night RAW, he began a storyline in which he was being blackmailed with some personal information that was being threatened to be leaked out. Following weeks of anticipation, Angle finally revealed the big secret that was being kept to the WWE Universe.
It turns out that Angle had an illegitimate son from a college relationship decades ago, and his son was none other than WWE Superstar and former SmackDown Live Tag Team Champion Jason Jordan.
Jordan was moved over to RAW to begin his singles career and also work alongside his father on Monday nights. As of late it seems as though the WWE Universe hasn't responded well to Jordan's new character.
WWE sent out the following on the accomplishment:
Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan both came to Raw wanting a piece of Samoa Joe. But as far as Kurt Angle was concerned, given that Cesaro & Sheamus keep running interference for The Samoan Submission Machine, The Kingslayer and his son would team to face them instead. To sweeten the pot, The Olympic Hero put the Raw Tag Team Titles on the line, and that gambit paid off in something of a Christmas miracle, or at the very least, a gift to two Superstars who needed a big win.
Rollins was vocally hesitant to team with Jordan, and when the former SmackDown Tag Team Champion took himself out of the running with a hasty attack, it seemed as though The Kingslayer’s fears would prove to be well-founded. But Jordan returned at the moment of truth, putting on the same showcase that took Raw’s top Superstars to the limit over the last few months. Where those displays weren’t enough to seal the deal for Jordan in a singles match, a series of clutch interferences by Rollins made sure they were enough to carry the young Superstar over the hump.
Rollins’ last interference, in which he threw Sheamus into the steel steps, took The Alabaster Gladiator out of the match entirely. Cesaro blasted The Architect with a running European uppercut, but he was flustered enough that Jordan was able to catch him with the Angle Slam-neckbreaker hybrid and land the unlikely duo their first Tag Team Championship together. Jordan had raised Rollins’ ire earlier in the night by claiming he’d be a better partner to The Architect than Dean Ambrose ever could be. Now, he’ll get the chance to prove it.
