AJ Styles & Omos’ phenomenal Raw Tag Team Title reign lives to see another day, as the former World Champion and his own personal colossus staved off the potent challenge of The Viking Raiders.
Fed up with Styles’ constant putdowns of the Viking culture, Erik and Ivar were hungry for a fight, and Styles was happy to oblige… by tagging in Omos at the outset. This gave the WWE Universe a closer look at Omos, the competitor, than ever, as he manhandled Ivar and Erik with frightening ease. Later, he and Styles showed off their tandem offense when Omos threw The Phenomenal One over the top rope and onto the floor, where he landed on Erik with an eye-popping hurricanrana.

The Viking Raiders fought back, and through a tenacious tandem effort, they even ejected the massive Omos from the ring, though they were never able to take the big man off his feet completely. Still, Omos’ unparalleled power was a gamechanger anytime he flexed his muscle, like when he press-slammed Ivar, disposing of the 305-pounder like a used tissue.
Refusing to go down without a fight, Ivar and Erik forged ahead and connected with a well-timed Viking Experience that nearly spelled the end for the champions. But as Ivar covered Styles, Omos shoved the charging Erik into the dogpile, breaking up Ivar’s pin attempt. The colossus then reentered the match and sent Erik plummeting to the mat with a two-handed slam to score the deciding fall.
