The WWE is in need to crown its new Raw Tag Team Champions and they will have to do it soon.

Former Raw Tag Team Champions Sheamus and Cesaro will have the chance to reclaim the straps in this upcoming match.

If you recall, they were in the middle of a best-of-7 series of matches against one another when then-Raw General Manager and WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley put them together as a tag team.

Sheamus and Cesaro have went on to be very successful, winning the Raw Tag Team Championships 3 times so far.

Before Sheamus decided to sign with WWE, he wrestled on the European circuit and was a two-time International Heavyweight Champion during his tenure in Irish Whip Wrestling (IWW).

He signed with WWE in 2006 and was placed in the WWE developmental territory at the time, Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW).

Fast forward to the June 30th, 2009 episode of ECW, Sheamus made his unannounced debut as a villain. Sheamus was moved to the Raw brand in October of that year.

Sheamus appeared on his first WWE pay-per-view event, Survivor Series when he was part of The Miz's team in a traditional five-on-five elimination tag team match. WWE pushed him as a top star right away.

At the TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view, Sheamus defeated Cena to win the WWE Championship, which marked his first championship in WWE and making him the first Irish-born WWE Champion.

He also captured the major title in just 166 days since his WWE debut by making it the third shortest time to capture a title since his main roster debut

During his time with the sports entertainment company, he is four-time world champion, having held the WWE Championship three times and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship once.

He is also a two-time United States Champion and a two-time WWE Raw Tag Team Champion with his partner Cesaro. Also, he has won the 2010 King of the Ring tournament, the 2012 Royal Rumble match and the 2015 Money in the Bank ladder match.

At WrestleMania 34 earlier this month in New Orleans, Strowman and a kid that was picked out of the crowd defeated Cesaro and Sheamus to win the Raw Tag Team Titles. It was later revealed that Strowman and Nicholas had to vacate the titles due to Nicholas being a fourth-grade student.

Now, Sheamus and Cesaro will battle Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt for the vacant titles at the upcoming Greatest Royal Rumble event.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that although many fans might think that Wyatt and Hardy will likely win the titles, there is still a chance that WWE swerves its fans by having Sheamus and Cesaro win the titles despite being on SmackDown Live.

This could like to them losing the titles to Hardy and Wyatt at the Backlash PPV two weeks later.
