Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn will have a tough challenge on their hands on the July 17th edition of WWE Raw although their Tag Team Titles won’t be on the line.
It’s been over three months since Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn became the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions at WrestleMania 39 when they ended The Usos historic reign as the champions in the main event of WrestleMania Saturday.
Since their title, Owens & Zayn have been carrying around the Raw & Smackdown Tag Team Titles and taking on all comers. Since they hold the Tag Team Titles of two brands, they are allowed to appear on both brands. That has led to the champions facing Raw tag teams like Imperium and Smackdown tag teams like Pretty Deadly as well.
This past Monday on the July 10th edition of Raw, Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn teamed up with the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth “Freakin” Rollins to form a championship trio against The Judgment Day’s Finn Balor, Damian Priest & Dominik Mysterio.
That huge six-man tag team match was won by Balor hitting the Coup de Grace double foot stomp on Zayn.
Thanks to The Judgment Day’s win in that tag team match, WWE has booked the champions Owens & Zayn against Priest & “Dirty” Dom for Raw on July 17th. Here’s the official announcement from WWE about the match:
As The Judgment Day recently got back on the same page, they have continued to provoke the rest of the locker room, running into Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn on more than one occasion.
On Raw, the two sides will meet again with The Judgment Day’s Dominik Mysterio and Señor Money in the Bank Damian Priest battling Owens and Zayn.
Just last week The Judgment Day dispatched of Owens, Zayn and Cody Rhodes in Six-Man Tag Team Action. The Judgment Day consiting of Priest and Finn Bálor also hold a tag team victory over the champions.

In addition to that, WWE also posted this video with Dominik Mysterio talking about how sooner or later, The Judgment Day will be Tag Team Champions.
