WWE Network Preview: SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bludge...
Posted by   |   Date: Apr 11, 2018   |   Read more

The Usos’ long-awaited WrestleMania moment turned into a coronation for The Bludgeon Brothers. Now, Jimmy & Jey are coming to set things straight.

The twin high-flyers will challenge Harper & Rowan at the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia in a last-ditch effort to combat The Bludgeon Brothers’ recent, unstoppable ascent to the top of SmackDown’s Tag Team division. Harper & Rowan went from dark-horse contenders to two-man wrecking crew in the span of a month. They went from crashing an Usos-New Day title match and wreaking havoc at WWE Fastlane to obliterating both teams in a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania, earning their first reign as SmackDown Tag Team Champions in the process.

The Usos, whose fight to finally compete at WrestleMania was well-documented, would not be so easily cast aside, however. After defeating The New Day on SmackDown LIVE to earn the right to challenge The Bludgeon Brothers, they go to Saudi Arabia with payback on their minds and the hope that it will be Day One all over again when they return stateside.

Tune in to the Greatest Royal Rumble event to see which team leaves as SmackDown Tag Team Champions on Friday, April 27, at 7 a.m. AST. The event streams live on the award-winning WWE Network with a tune-in time of 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT, with a special, one-hour Greatest Royal Rumble Kickoff starting at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT. It will be available on pay-per-view outside of the Middle East with regional broadcast information forthcoming, and tickets will be available Friday, April 13.

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The New Day vs. Th...
Posted by   |   Date: Mar 28, 2018   |   Read more

After a long, nine-year journey, The Usos are headed to WrestleMania. Now, the challenge begins.

The SmackDown Tag Team Champions will be defending their titles against not one, but two tag teams just as hungry as Jimmy & Jey — The New Day, who traded victories with the twins over 2017’s already-legendary series between the tandems, and The Bludgeon Brothers, who have never competed at WrestleMania as a tag team but whose rebirth has already made them a force to be reckoned with on Team Blue.

The championship match first came about when The New Day won the right to once again challenge The Usos for the titles at WWE Fastlane. As that rivalry began to regain steam, Harper & Rowan waited in the wings until they finally struck during the edge-of-your-seat title bout, decimating both teams and sending Xavier Woods to the hospital. The Bludgeon Brothers continued their onslaught the next week, defeating the only medically cleared members of The Usos and New Day — Jimmy Uso and Big E — and using brute strength to position themselves for a title match.

Given that The Usos and The New Day have a grudge to settle against the behemoths (and each other), it’s now a matter every team for themselves, and this one may not come down to who hits what move so much as who is physically left standing when the dust finally settles.

Tune in to WrestleMania to see who leaves as SmackDown Tag Team Champions, streaming live Sunday, April 8, on the award-winning WWE Network at a special start time of 7 ET/5 PT!

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.

Fastlane Digitals | Fastlane Screencaptures

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 make their way to the ring. Jimmy says there they go again, spreading the power of positivity through pancakes. They have gone head to head and gone to war and there was one tag team standing tall, with the titles. Jey says they haven’t looked back since. Jey says they used to be just like the New Day. Singing around and dancing looking like a box of Skittles. That didn’t take them to the next level. Jimmy says they have been grinding for the last nine years. They have tried to prove to everyone that they belong on Wrestlemania. Jey says year after year, they have been getting passed over. Nine years in the game and zero Wrestlemanias.

They say that this year is their time. Jey says it is the goal line at Fastlane and they will run through the New Day into the end zone. Jimmy says the New Day will be on the sidelines. Jey says they have adapted and they are the future.

Big E says they have been at the top where they belong for the last five years. They hosted Wrestlemania when you were in the back eating catering. They didn’t get here because of their daddies. They didn’t stand on the sidelines because they rushed the field and took what was theirs. They will take the titles at Fastlane and the will become Five Time WWE Tag Team Champions.

While they stand face to face in the ring, the Bludgeon Brothers’ music plays and they appear on the stage. They make their way to the ring.

All five men leave the ring.

Jimmy Uso On How Teaming With Roman Reigns Led To A Heel Tur...
Posted by   |   Date: Feb 25, 2018   |   Read more

WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champion Jimmy Uso spoke with the Independent about various topics. Here are some of the highlights:

Interest in tag teams:

“I feel like tag team wrestling has been in the shadows for a while. When my brother and I debuted in WWE, we knew that if we wanted to make a mark here we’d have to run the tag division, and last year we finally had a chance to really open up and come around to us. It’s on fire and, right now, I still feel like tag team wrestling is growing because there are a lot of teams down in NXT that haven’t come up to the main roster yet, and a lot of teams out there doing their thing in independent wrestling and people who haven’t made their mark here yet or are trying to get here. When you’re trying to be the best tag team in the world, you’re looking and watching everywhere, and there’s a lot of talent that haven’t even been seen or had their chance.”

Turning heel in 2016:

“I think that was the people’s call – the [fans] called that. When we were with Roman Reigns we were getting booed, but then the boos stayed with us. So, we were like ‘Why are we coming out here trying to show our heritage and trying to high-five everybody if they don’t like us?’ For us it was a case of ‘Well, we don’t like you, either! I think that helped us. They gave us the [heel] turn and said, ‘It’s your time, what do you want to do?’ When we said what we wanted to do, we knew we had to deliver and I feel like we did deliver, and the people have got with us, which is cool. Going from something good to something better is hard to do, but while I knew we were climbing, I didn’t know we’d get to where we’re at now. From the good Usos with the face paint, we were climbing that mountain and we’re at the top of the tag team division now – that’s just what it is.”
