There is a new tag team set to be featured in WWE following a video that aired as a digital exclusive.

The current WWE men’s tag team division is strong with several contending teams on the Raw brand while Smackdown has a good amount of teams as well. All of those teams are currently focused on taking the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles from The Judgment Day’s Damian Priest & Finn Balor.

Up next for the champions are Pete Dunne & Tyler Bate, who won a number one contender’s Tag Team Match over #DIY on the February 9th edition of WWE Smackdown.

While other teams are going after the champions, a new tag team was featured in a video that aired on WWE’s social media channels.

In the video that WWE posted, former Raw Tag Team Champion Cedric Alexander and former Hit Row member Ashante “Thee” Adonis did a seated interview together. They spoke about how they had come together to become a tag team in WWE.

There was some friendly banter in the video as Cedric questioned Ashante’s wardrobe choices, which led to Ashante saying he wanted to help Cedric improve his wardrobe. Adonis suggested they are called Rags & Riches while Alexander wondered why he was rags. It may not be an official name.

In the Fightful Select rundown on Smackdown in Charlotte, this video featuring Adonis & Alexander was listed as airing during the show, but it was only aired as a digital exclusive.
