Strowman says it pains him to say it, but they’re relinquishing the RAW Tag Team Championships. Nicholas has a scheduling conflict… he’s still in the fourth grade. Strowman says when Nicholas is out of school, they’re coming back for the titles. Nicholas says, “And somebody is going to get these hands!” That got a huge ovation.
