HARTFORD, Conn. — A couple of weeks ago, Daniel Bryan & Rowan became the SmackDown Tag Team Champions by defeating The Usos, who took advantage of the Wild Card Rule to vie for the titles. Consider the favor repaid: The Planet’s Tag Team Champions were one-upped by Jimmy & Jey on the WWE Money in the Bank Kickoff in a non-title match that blurred the battle lines between Raw and SmackDown LIVE.

Fittingly for Jimmy & Jey, they started things off with jokes, dubbing Bryan & Rowan “SpongeBob & Patrick” to the delight of the WWE Universe. It had the unfortunate side effect, however, of infuriating the champions, who made sure The Usos went through hell before they got even within a hair’s breadth of sweet victory. The main aggressor in the match was Rowan, whom Bryan deployed at will to pulverize The Usos. The Beard wasn’t entirely absent from the showdown, tagging in mainly to act as a closer, but Jimmy & Jey rightly identified Rowan as their biggest problem (literally and figuratively), and took him out with stereo superkicks outside the ring. When Bryan attempted to join the fray with a suicide dive, he, too, was met with a pair of simultaneous superkicks. The Double Uce that sealed the match was all but elementary, but the implications of the victory were anything but.

True, on its face, this win doesn’t mean The Usos are heading back to the blue brand — the bout was non-title, so Bryan & Rowan are still the champs. Nonetheless, it was a solid boost for Jimmy & Jey as they weigh a challenge from The Revival, and a blow to the barely-crowned titleholders who have already raised the hackles of a potential contender. And that’s before we even get to the Wild Card Rule, which could, conceivably, give The Usos leeway to challenge for the titles in earnest. True, nothing technically changed at the end of this match, but it’s looking more and more like what Bryan & Rowan always said they wanted, though not in the way they hoped: A different world.

Wrestlemania 35 Digitals

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – For a brief moment at WrestleMania 35, the MetLife Stadium became The Uso Penitentiary as Jimmy & Jey stood tall on The Grandest Stage of Them All, defeating The Bar, Ricochet & Aleister Black and Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev to retain the SmackDown Tag Team Championship.

The action was fast and furious right from the get-go as Aleister Black and Jey Uso traded holds, but the frantic nature of the Fatal 4-Way Match soon came into play, as members from all four teams tagged into the fray in rapid-fire succession.

The NXT upstarts looked like they had the upper hand, as Ricochet dizzied Cesaro with a dazzling headscissors takeover, but an uppercut from The Swiss Superstar stopped The One and Only right in his tracks. The Bar went on a rampage from there, as Cesaro spun Ricochet in the Cesaro Swing for minutes, while Sheamus grabbed anyone within reach and pummeled them with the Beats of the Bodhrán.

Ricochet recovered from Cesaro’s stomach-churning ride, but he was soon caught in the clutches of Rusev, who overpowered the speedy Superstar. Soon, the bout devolved into utter chaos, as a stacked superplex-powerbomb combo from the top rope brought all eight men crashing to the mat in a heap.

The relentless pace continued from there, as superkicks, Kinshasas and Black Masses were delivered with extreme precision. After Sheamus clobbered Ricochet with a Brogue Kick, though, The Celtic Warrior was all alone with Jimmy & Jey. The Usos took Sheamus down with a pair of superkicks, then crushed him with a double splash from the top rope to retain their titles.

The Usos may have left The Show of Shows with their SmackDown Tag Team Titles, but it was clear to the WWE Universe that there will be plenty of tough challenges ahead for the champions.

CLEVELAND – None of it worked. Not The Miz’s hometown good vibes, not the presence of good-luck charm George Mizanin at ringside, not even the signature daredevilry of Shane McMahon. The Co-Besties, a.k.a. the Best Friends, a.k.a. McMiz, are neither SmackDown Tag Team Champions, nor are they apparently even a tag team anymore. At the very least, they likely aren’t friends, if we’re to take Shane’s stunning, post-match attack of The Awesome One at face value.

Of course, heinous ambushes are part and parcel of the game in a tag team division, but the former SmackDown Commissioner’s attack was doubly shocking because it came on the heels of one of his squad’s finest moments in the short-lived alliance, a match in which Shane literally went above and beyond to get to the cusp of victory against The Usos: In what will undoubtedly be this match’s signature moment, The Prodigal Son knocked Jimmy Uso flat out of the sky with a Coast-to-Coast as the titleholder attempted to pancake Miz with a top-rope splash.

The maneuver didn’t just launch a thousand .gifs; it gave The A-Lister new life in a match where Jimmy & Jey competed like they were looking to send a message, even going so far as to add new maneuvers to their repertoire — a pop-up Samoan Drop; a two-man swinging neckbreaker — as examples of the kind of chemistry and creativity that can only come about after years of teaming together. Miz, too, was looking to send a message; with his father in the front row, The Awesome One had been rolling like a house on fire all match and saved the finishing touch for last. At the old man’s urging, Miz ascended the top turnbuckle and attempted a Frog Splash of his own, only to be kneed by Jimmy and rolled up for three.

Cleveland still showered Miz with a hero’s reception in the wake of his defeat, and Shane seemed content to let his partner have his moment. At least until he bulldozed Miz from behind, pie-faced Mr. Mizanin in the crowd and locked The Awesome One in a triangle as Mr. Miz watched in horror. Tears will doubtlessly be shed for the sudden demise of one of SmackDown’s purest friendships, but perhaps the mourners shouldn’t be surprised. Shane is a self-professed student of the game, and the lesson about friends has been told time and time again. The last word on tonight might be that it was simply Miz’s turn to learn it.

Survivor Series Digitals | Video Captures

LOS ANGELES — Under the captainship of The Usos, the blue brand’s Tag Team division came to win in the Survivor Series 2018 Kickoff, defeating Monday Night Raw in a 10-on-10 Tag Team Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match.

After targeting Kalisto’s knee and ankle in the early goings, the aggressive Epico suffered The Revival’s Shatter Machine, giving Team Red the early advantage by eliminating both members of The Colons. The hobbled King of Flight, meanwhile, was replaced on the apron by his Lucha House Party cohort Gran Metalik.

Shortly after The Colons’ elimination, Karl Anderson scored a fast roll-up pin on The B-Team’s Bo Dallas. Team Red’s co-captains Bobby Roode & Chad Gable rallied to eliminate the unpredictable with a Roode Awakening/moonsault combo that, appropriately, no one could have predicted.

The back-and-forth nature of Survivor Series’ first match of the night continued, with The New Day’s elimination of The Ascension followed by Gran Metalik’s breathtaking senton to Karl Anderson, taking both him and his Good Brother Luke Gallows out of the competition. Lucha House Party’s celebration would be cut short, though, when The Usos’ double-team tactics destroyed the masked trio’s figurative piñata.

Big E then used his size to keep Dash Wilder on the defensive with a succession of belly-to-belly suplexes and a spear through the ropes that sent the Revival member to the floor. With the battle spilling outside the ring, Roode saw fit to create a Glorious catastrophe by diving onto the brawling Superstars, but Jey Uso took that perilous flight onto the mass of humanity instead. As the dazed combatants struggled to their feet at the bottom of the entrance ramp, Gable hurled Jimmy Uso off the top turnbuckle onto red and blue Superstars alike with a high-risk German suplex.

Gable was seemingly on a roll, but an ill-timed moonsault propelled him into the waiting arms of Big E, who set the mat tactician up for the Midnight Hour. The Revival stayed alive in the final moments of the match by hitting Woods with the Shatter Machine, but their end came in the form of a series of Uso Superkicks. That left Dawson vulnerable to Jimmy’s top-rope splash — with a tribute to cousin Roman Reigns thrown in for good measure.

SmackDown Tag Team Title Match: The Usos vs. The Bludgeon Brothers

Winners: The Bludgeon Brothers

WWE Summary: JEDDAH, SAUDI ARABIA — Jimmy & Jey Uso brought the fight to The Bludgeon Brothers halfway around the world and to the sold-out Greatest Royal Rumble event, yet the high-flying twins were unsuccessful in their mission to reclaim the titles less than three weeks after losing them to Harper & Rowan at WrestleMania.

Days after Rowan was humiliated when Jimmy Uso’s wife Naomi cost him a victory in their SmackDown LIVE singles match, the malicious champions came to the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in a foul mood, keeping the pressure on The Usos in the early goings.

Even though the twin challengers found temporary success in this bout with divide-and-conquer tactics to isolate their titanic foes, the “bludgeoning” was imminent. Harper & Rowan used the same strategy on Jimmy, allowing Rowan to score the pinfall victory after a devastating double-team maneuver.

Now that The Usos have been turned back in their rematch, it seems SmackDown LIVE’s Tag Team division will continue to be crushed beneath the mighty mallets of The Bludgeon Brothers. Can anyone stand up to these barbaric colossi?

Fastlane 2018 Full Results w/ Video- March 11th
Posted by   |   Date: Mar 12, 2018   |   Read more

Introduction: The Usos and The New Day have had some of the most explosive matches in tag team history. These teams have gone through Hell and back to remain the top tag team. Can The Usos hold on to the SmackDown Live Tag Team Championships, or will The New Day catch up with The Usos and become Five time champs? One team has never won at WrestleMania. The other has never made a WrestleMania. And a third team isn’t about to be left behind on The Road to WrestleMania so easily.

The long-awaited, rivalry-renewing clash between The Usos and The New Day ended in indecisive fashion when The Bludgeon Brothers came calling and put a brutal end to what had been shaping up to be among the most unpredictable of the instant classics between ya boys and the Day One twins.

Match Summary: WWE Smackdown Tag Team champions The Usos vs. The New Day.

Xavier Woods started off with Jey Uso. He got drilled hard early and The Usos cornered him and tagged in and out, stomping him hard. Corey Graves referenced the Samoan SWAT Team. I popped for that. Xavier finally tagged out to Kofi Kingston, who nailed a lot of hot offensive maneuvers before nailing the Boom Drop.

Lots of really good back and forth action. Kingston was worked over but made the tag to Xavier. Xavier fired back with roaring forearms. Kingston added a kick, setting up Jimmy Uso for a Woods superkick. Kofi tagged in and went to the top. Xavier nailed a superkick and Kofi nailed a superfly splash for a two count.

New Day were sent to the outside, setting up a double dive from the Usos onto all three members of New Day.

The Bludgeon Brothers’ music hit, and they came down to the ring. They attacked everyone on the floor, so the referee rang the bell. I get they are obviously setting up Wrestlemania but given the level of work those involved could pull out in the ring, this was disappointing to see.

The Brothers pulled Woods off the apron and suplexed him down to the floor. They ran the Usos into each other, then slammed them on the floor. Harper slammed Harper atop of one of the Usos and then splashed the champions.

They then powerbombed Woods on the bottom half of the ring steps.

Everyone was left destroyed by the Bludgeon Brothers. As a vehicle to get them over, it was very effective. One would assume a three-way bout at Wrestlemania.

They promoted the Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar storyline leading into Wrestlemania.

AJ Styles was being interviewed by Renee Young when Shinsuke Nakamura showed up. Nakamura told him he hoped that AJ won tonight so he could beat AJ. An intense AJ cut him off and warned him that at Wrestlemania, Nakamura was who was going to get beat.

They stretchered out all of the Bludgeon Brothers’ victims.

The Usos (Jey and Jimmy Uso) (c) vs. Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin 2 out of three falls.

Benjamin and Gable are first to the ring. Usos are next and for heels, the crowd is into them, making a lot of noise. They talk their way to the ring. The announcers let us know that the last match they had was reversed.

Benjamin and Jay start hot, and Benjamin controls as he tags in Gable. Jay breaks away and goes back to his corner. They trade holds until Jimmy tags in and the brothers go for a superkick as Gable leaves the ring to slow things down. Gable gets back in and they trade holds back and forth until Jimmy takes control, hitting blows at will. Jimmy gets a two count and Gable escapes, tagging, but Jimmy doesn’t see it.

Gable hits a chop block as Benjamin comes into the match. Benjamin is now in control, working over the leg that was hit. Gable tags in for more leg work and a two count. They have Jimmy trapped in their corner and tag in and out to keep working that leg, slowing down the Usos. The crowd is behind the Usos, are they still heels at this point?

Eventually, Jimmy is able to fight back, and both he and Benjamin are down and Jay gets in the match and attacks. He gets Gable outside the ring on one side and Benjamin outside on the other. He dives on Benjamin first and then Gable. Gable gets into the ring and Jay is able to get a two count. Jay rolls up Gable for another two count/ He kicks out knocking Jay into the ropes where Benjamin gets in a kick and Gable is able to get a tiger suplex for two count.

After some more double teaming brawling by Gable and Benjamin gets a two count. Jay is knocked out of the ring, and Gable moonsaults into both Usos. He tosses Jimmy into the ring, and Jay hits a superkick on Gable, then a splash from the top rope for a two count. Jay is tagged in and they look to both splash, but Benjamin stops him.

Usos start hitting superkicks and Gable is pinned.

First Fall to the Usos

The match continues, and Benjamin is able to hit Jay in the corner. There is some brawling, and we end up with Benjamin has Jimmy on his shoulder outside the ring and Gable clotheslines him. Back into the ring. Benjamin starts setting up for a big power move and whichever Uso is in the ring wraps him up in a small package for a three count.

Fall number two and still champions, The Usos

Introduction: For The New Day, it was a reminder that they are one of, if not the, top threats of any division they compete in, as an early burst from ya boys led Gable & Benjamin to focus their efforts on The New Day while and Rusev & English isolated The Usos – there was a friendly submission competition of sorts between English and Chad Gable at one point – before coming to blows against each other.

Speaking of Rusev & English, it was a declarative statement that they’re more than an odd-couple tag team, as English played spoiler on multiple occasions when other teams were primed to win the contest, and Rusev — a vocal favorite of the WWE Universe in this match — nearly sealed the bout with an Accolade on Big E that the formidable Superstar was shockingly able to power his way out of.

WWE Smackdown Tag Team champions The Usos vs. New Day vs. Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin vs. Aiden English & Rusev

They have four competitors in the ring at the same time. It broke down quick with everyone brawling. Kingston was elevated over the top into a dive. Jimmy Uso followed up with another dive. Benjamin leapt to the top and nailed a superplex off the top on Jey. It tooked great. Big E broke up the pinfall and shoulderblocked Benjamin in the corner. Rusev started demolishing everyone. The crowd got really into that and chanted “Rusev Day.” It settled into Gable working over Kofi with an armbar while English worked over Uso. Having two sets of guys wrestling at the same time in the same ring was beyond distracting.

The Usos went for the superkicks on Gable and Benjamin but they were stopped. Gable locked in the Texas Cloverleaf on Uso. Kofi tried to dive into the ring but Benjamin caught and powerbombed him. English pulled Benjamin out and nailed him. English drilled Gable with a powerbomb and scored a close two count. Rusev tagged in and the place went nuts. He locked in the Accolade but Big E attacked Rusev from behind and sent him to the floor. New Day tried to set up for the Midnight Hour but English attacked Kofi. Rusev hit all his signature moves on E for near falls.

E locked the Accolade on E, who powered out to his feet. Gable grabbed Rusev and snatched him with a German suplex, then did the same to English. He hit the Doug Williams Chaos Theory on E, which looked awesome. Uso superkicked Gable. The other came off the top with a splash and they scored the pin.

Your winners and still WWE Smackdown Tag Team champions, The Usos!

Despite the distracting “dual matches” in the same ring, most of the big spots and most of the near falls got great reactions. They are onto something with Rusev. Usos are in a world of their own as a tag team. Entertaining.
