Y2AJ get a shot at New Day's tag titles on next week's Raw

AJ Styles has only been in WWE for a little more than a month, but he's picking up on how things work pretty quickly.

After he and his new best buddy Chris Jericho teamed with Mark Henry to win a six-man tag against The New Day on last week's SmackDown, on the Feb. 29 Raw, the duo calling themselves Y2AJ earned a non-title match against the tag team champions.

Big E, Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods hit the ring for their usual pre-match promo, hugging out their brotherhood and declaring the New Day the most dominant team in wrestling (shots fired at League of Nations, Edge & Christian and - in a veiled way - the Elite of the Bullet Club).
