It now looks like Sheamus and Cesaro finally have their WrestleMania plans set - sort of.
Last week, it was speculated that WWE had two plans for The Bar. The first was that they would defend their RAW tag team championships against two stars who are currently not a team. The second plan was that they reportedly wouldn’t even be in a match and instead, they would be used in an angle.
WWE looks to be going with the first option, as an impressive team like The Bar deserve to be involved in a match at the Grandest Stage of Them All next month, following on from an impressive year where they’ve practically steamrolled through the RAW tag team division.
This week on RAW, there was a tag team battle royal to determine who they will defend their titles against in New Orleans, Louisiana next month. The Club, Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel, Titus Worldwide along with The Revival were all vying for an opportunity.
Instead, the dominant Braun Strowman entered the match and won. Now, there’s talk of either Elias being his partner or WWE could go ahead with a handicap match. Before the battle royal, though, Sheamus and Cesaro were in tag team action before getting attacked by the other tag teams.
Following that altercation, Cesaro and Sheamus have revealed that a Superstar Shake-Up is around the corner and they won’t want to wait, they want a move to SmackDown LIVE immediately.
However, something subtle yet hilarious happened during the first tag team match which WWE fans might have missed. With tag team chaos all over the ring, Sheamus and Cesaro retreat up the ramp with more teams entering.
As Titus O’Neil and Apollo were on their way down, The Celtic Warrior tried to get them to calm down by throwing up the ‘Wakanda Forever’ sign to seemingly show solidarity. This is from the hit Marvel movie Black Panther, with Wakanda being a fictional city in Africa which has taken the world by storm and plenty of athletes are using this as a celebration.
Clearly, throwing up the Wakanda Forever sign wasn’t enough, as Sheamus and Cesaro were still attacked as they have a huge target on their backs.
For now, they need to focus on Strowman and see who they could be facing. Plus, with a Superstar Shake-Up on the horizon, it will be interesting to see whether or not they will switch over to SmackDown LIVE to continue their dominance.
