Sheamus and Cesaro beat Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose to become the new Raw Tag-Team Champions on last night's episode in Manchester, England.

The win kickstarts a third Raw Tag-Team Title reign for the team, collectively known as The Bar, and they will now be the ones to face SmackDown duo The Usos at Survivor Series. That isn't the only change WWE have made for the November 19 pay-per-view.

Both the male and female traditional Survivor Series teams were padded out with some key additions. Team Captain and Raw GM Kurt Angle added Jason Jordan, Samoa Joe and Finn Bálor to his side, and the Raw women's side is almost complete after both Sasha Banks and Asuka were added. It's expected that Bayley will get the final spot.

The biggest news is that Tag Title switch though. Rollins and Ambrose only won the belts this past August at SummerSlam and had recently reformed The Shield alongside Roman Reigns.

As surprising as it is to see the Rollins/Ambrose combination lose the titles after just a few months, it's also heartening to see WWE show so much faith in Sheamus and Cesaro.
