On RAW this week, eight teams faced off in a Tag team Turmoil match. The winner would earn the opportunity to face WWE RAW Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman at WWE Clash of Champions. In the match, the Viking Raiders competed with Lucha House Party, Heavy Machinery, the O.C., Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder, the B-Team and Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode. Ziggler and Roode last eliminated Heavy Machinery to win the match.

The B-Team and the Viking Raiders started the match. Curt Hawkins and Bo Dallas briefly controlled the match early on but the Viking Raiders quickly eliminated the duo. The O.C. was the next team to enter the match. Gallows and Anderson dominated Ivar early but a dive to the outside let the War Raiders gain some momentum. Both teams brawled and ignored the referee’s demands. As a result, the official disqualified both teams.

The duo of Roode & Ziggler was the next team to enter the match and they faced Lucha House Party. Gran Metalik gained the upper hand on Ziggler with some high-flying offense. Lince Dorado removed Roode from the equation but Ziggler eliminated Lucha House Party with a kick to the back of Metalik’s head. The Revival came to the ring next. The makeshift team of Roode and Ziggler surprisingly held their own against the Revival. But the former RAW Tag Team Champions isolated Ziggler and ganged up on him. Ziggler tagged in Roode, who planted Dawson with a DDT to eliminate the Revival.

Ryder and Hawkins were the next team to enter the match. Hawkins took the fight to Ziggler but the former WWE RAW Tag Team Champions were quickly eliminated when Ziggler superkicked Ryder. Heavy Machinery was the last team to enter the match. Tucker nearly pinned Ziggler with a crossbody off the top. Otis hit Ziggler with a delayed vertical suplex for a near fall. Roode seized control of the match and tosssed Tucker into the steel stairs. Ziggler continued to ground Tucker, who launched Ziggler across the ring with a catapult. Otis and Roode tagged in and the former cleared house. A spinning slam planted Roode and Otis squashed both men in the corner. The big man hit Ziggler with the Caterpillar but Roode pinned Tucker with the Glorious DDT to win the match.
