AOP, Rollins & Murphy vs. Owens, Joe & Viking Raiders Set For 2/10 WWE Raw

An eight-man tag team bout is set for Monday's WWE Raw.

Seth Rollins will lead the newly christened Murphy and AOP (Akam & Rezar) against the fearsome foursome of Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe, and Vikings Raiders (Erik & Ivar). Joe reportedly suffered a concussion on the Jan. 27 episode of WWE Raw. He was not on last Monday's Raw, but is scheduled to compete this Monday.

As first reported by Sports Illustrated, an epic Eight-Man Tag Team Match will pit Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins and Murphy with AOP against Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe & The Viking Raiders.

Last week on Raw, Murphy & AOP took out KO & The Viking Raiders in a grueling six-man tag bout, thanks to a little help from Rollins. Despite his squad coming up short, KO received a standing ovation from the WWE Universe after eliminating Murphy and Akam and eventually being pinned by Rezar.

Tensions between the opposing groups carried over into last week’s main event – a Triple Threat war with major implications for Rollins. A Rollins victory against Bobby Lashley and Ricochet would have given him exactly what he has been thirsting for – a chance to challenge WWE Champion Brock Lesnar at WWE Super ShowDown.

Unsurprisingly, AOP & Murphy got involved in the match, but Owens and Erik evened the odds, and Ricochet scored a win to earn a chance at The Beast.

With the WWE Universe behind them, can Owens & Co. draw from that potent backing and parlay it into a win? Or, will the self-proclaimed Monday Night Messiah lead his squad to victory? Find out at 8/7 C on USA Network!

Fightful will have live coverage of WWE Raw beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Monday.
