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.

SmackDown Live Digitals | Video Captures

Introduction: Ever since the Superstar Shakeup, The Usos have had their plates full. They have the ongoing feud with The Revival on Raw and making sure the SmackDown Tag Team Championships are being earned. The Usos have been deemed one of the Greatest Tag Teams of the Millennium. Last week, Roman Reigns found himself dealing with a new authority figure. This week, The Big Dog needed aide. He sought out The Miz. The Miz definitely agreed to have his back. But what happens when THe Miz gets banned by Shane McMahon? You call family. There was no one better to call than #TheBloodline, The Usos.

The Usos let Roman know that when he’s down in numbers, family will always have his back. So when Shane McMahon, Daniel Bryan, Luke Harper and Elias jumped on The Miz and Roman, The Usos were right there to help fend off the gang. So how will Roman & The Usos fair against Shane, Daniel, Rowan and Elias? WWE.com has the latest from the match below.

LONDON — Continuing their conversation from the night before on Raw, Roman Reigns and The Miz kicked off SmackDown LIVE in London by discussing who was going to get the first crack at Shane McMahon tonight on the blue brand, but their chat was soon re-routed when they were by Shane McMahon & Elias, who seemingly both were eager to have their WWE Money in the Bank matches against Miz and Reigns respectively to come early.

It quickly became apparent that Shane & Elias had set a trap for Reigns and Miz as Daniel Bryan & Rowan joined Shane-O-Mac and Elias and were clearly ready to pounce. However, just as the quartet attacked and began to lay into Miz & Reigns, the Wild Card Rule struck again, with The Usos dashing out to join the fray. Jimmy & Jey wiped out Shane, Elias, Bryan and Rowan with stereo dives and stood tall alongside Reigns & The A-Lister to kick off SmackDown LIVE in Uso crazy fashion.

After The Usos of Raw used the Wild Card Rule to come to the aid of Roman Reigns and sparked a brouhaha with Shane McMahon, Elias, and SmackDown Tag Team Champions Daniel Bryan & Rowan, Shane decreed that all seven Superstars would run it back in a 4-on-3 Handicap Match. Noticeable by his absence was The Miz, who Shane barred from ringside earlier in the evening, saying that if The A-Lister showed up during the Handicap Match, Shane would immediately cancel their Steel Cage Match this Sunday at WWE Money in the Bank.

When Jey Uso tweaked his ankle after missing a high-risk maneuver, the foursome took advantage of their numbers advantage, with Shane-O-Mac wearing down Jey and the rest of the squad following suit.

Despite absorbing tremendous punishment from his opponents, Jey rallied back and dropped Shane with a pinpoint kick before finding the energy to tag a fresh Big Dog into the matchup. Reigns unloaded on Bryan and eventually tagged in Jimmy, which allowed The Usos to run wild. A flurry of action saw Bryan connect with his Running Knee and Reigns level Rowan with a Superman Punch on the outside. During the melee, Jey Uso found himself in prime position to be hit with Shane’s Coast-to-Coast that secured the victory for the quartet.

Shane seemed ready to continue the attack after the bell, but The Miz put a stop to any such thing when he dashed out with a steel chair to even the odds for Reigns & The Usos, clearing the ring of Shane, Elias, Bryan and Rowan. There will be no escape for Shane this Sunday though, when he and Miz are locked inside the confines of a Steel Cage.

Raw Digitals

Anyone who was worried that The Usos were going to slow-burn their way into the thick of Raw’s Tag Team division can rest easy: Jimmy & Jey are taking to the red waters just as expertly as they took to the blue, even notching something of a twofer in their third week as Raw Superstars by upending one team in the ring and worming their way into the psyche of another.

The team they beat? Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, back on Raw and looking for a big win against the team they ambushed on their very first night in WWE. For the most part, they made a statement, ground-and-pounding The Usos into a ditch that they narrowly escaped with stereo superkicks to Gallows and a splash from Jimmy to the big man’s torso for the 1-2-3. But the meat of their evening was the reveal of something the WWE Universe had allegedly “never” seen: A video of The Revival’s Dash Wilder shaving his partner Scott Dawson’s back.

To their credit, Dash & Dawson hit the stage and mounted a passionate defense of the arrangement — Dawson’s back is so wide as to make shaving it himself scientifically impossible, and Wilder is his best friend, so of course he’d ask his help — but The Usos’ continued mockery started to chip away at the “Top Guys’” pride. Nonetheless, they opted to put a pin in this one, at least until after their match later tonight against Raw Tag Team Champions Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins. After then? Jimmy & Jey are fair game.

Raw Digitals

In case you missed it last week, Bobby Roode & Chad Gable have embraced the chaos, thrown sportsmanship to the winds and adopted a new, markedly meaner attitude. Nastiness certainly looked good on them even in defeat, but as they learned on Raw, they have a ways to go to catch up with the inventors of the form. Following an open challenge of sorts, The Usos — who hit their stride after finding their own mean streak a few years ago — came over from SmackDown LIVE and humbled the former Raw Tag Team Champions in a nasty little match that showcased Jimmy & Jey’s sharp in-ring chops and how very, very crowded the Raw Tag Team division is becoming.

The Usos seemed to think this was going to be a cakewalk, and the glorious duo quickly convinced them otherwise, with Gable proving to be a pitbull on the mat. But when the tide turned, it turned quickly, as The Usos pounced with a series of superkicks — one to Gable, one to Roode and then two more to Gable — before finishing the Minnesota stretcher off with a Double Uce. Roode & Gable still looked great, but this was The Usos’ stark reminder to a Raw roster that might have forgotten: When it comes to all things bad — be they bad attitudes or bad men — the line forms behind them.

In an absolute dream match, The Usos defended the SmackDown Tag Team Titles against The Hardy Boyz on SmackDown LIVE.

The two legendary Hall of Fame-bound tag teams went at it with intensity as Matt & Jeff pushed the pace and staggered Jimmy & Jey with several of their signature moves. Jey regained the advantage for his team after connecting with the big splash, but the Hardys survived the onslaught. When The Charismatic Enigma avoided a double splash, The Hardy Boyz rallied, putting Jey down with a Twist of Fate and Swanton Bomb that secured them their eighth Tag Team Championship reign.

The good vibes wouldn’t last long though, as Lars Sullivan arrived and picked up right where he left off after attacking Kurt Angle last night. Matt & Jeff attempted to bring the fight to the monstrous Sullivan, but The Freak laid them out with a pair of Freak Accidents and nailed Matt with a devastating flying headbutt.

The Hardy Boyz were the new SmackDown Tag Team Champions, but they were also Lars’ latest victims.

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.

SmackDown Live Digitals | Video Captures

Whether The Bar can survive a Triple Threat title defense on Sunday remains to be seen, but they definitely got more than they bargained for when they challenged The Usos to a Rap Battle, as Jimmy & Jey responded to the champions’ rendition of “Ice, Ice Sheamy” by rapping circles around them and provoking a throwdown between the two teams. The New Day, who won the previous rap battle and returned to host this one, weren’t spared either, but Cesaro & Sheamus eventually cleared the ring of all challengers in a stark reminder to their opponents that while Vanilla Ice parodies may not cut the mustard in a rap battle, there’s no mistaking who’ll be under pressure when the bell rings.

Three of the most dominant tag teams in recent history will collide at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs as The Bar defends the SmackDown Tag Team Championships against The New Day and The Usos in a Triple Threat Match. These three teams each have five Tag Title reigns to their names, making them some of the most accomplished squads to compete in WWE.

Sheamus & Cesaro captured the SmackDown Tag Titles on SmackDown 1000 by defeating The New Day’s Big E & Xavier Woods. Since Survivor Series, though, the reigning champions have hit a snag, with non-title losses to both The New Day and The Usos. Plus, under the Triple Threat Match stipulation, pressure will be even higher on The Bar, considering they do not need to be involved in the decision to lose the titles.

Don’t miss this dream Triple Threat Match at WWE TLC, streaming live on Sunday, Dec. 16, at 7 ET/4 PT on WWE Network.
