— On Monday’s RAW, Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov captured the WWE tag team championships in a Fatal Fourway match. The finish came after John Cena distracted the Nexus members, allowing Santino to hit his Cobra finisher and get the pin.
— Also on RAW, we saw the debut of Tyson Kidd’s new (huge) bodyguard, former developmental star Jackson Andrews. Andrews has been billed at over 7 feet tall in FCW and has been working live WWE events in recent weeks.
From what we’ve heard, WWE was very happy with Kidd’s match with DH Smith on last week’s Superstars and their rematch on RAW where Jackson Andrews was introduced. Kidd getting a new bodyguard is a good indication that WWE is behind his character.
