Heath Slater & Rhyno def. The Usos to become the first SmackDown Tag Team Champions

Heath Slater & Rhyno def. The Usos to become the first SmackDown Tag Team Champions

RICHMOND, Va. — Do you believe in miracles? Heath Slater & Rhyno do.

At Backlash, the mismatched duo overcame The Usos to become the first SmackDown Tag Team Champions, while earning a SmackDown LIVE contract for Slater in the process.

Earlier in the night, Jimmy and Jey Uso followed up Tuesday night’s unsportsmanlike beatdown of American Alpha by besting The Hype Bros in a Second Chance Challenge. This earned them the right to compete for the titles in the final of the SmackDown Tag Team Championship Tournament.

The team of Rhyno & Heath Slater can't believe what they just did.

Unfortunately for the brothers, the self-proclaimed “Beauty and the Manbeast” were destined to stand in their way. Although The Usos sported a newfound, ruthless attitude that allowed them to dominate a good portion of the match, the sheer adrenaline of The One Man Band and a Gore from Rhyno paved the way for Slater to pick up the biggest win of his life.

In an emotional post-match celebration, Slater went on to thank one and all, and promised his wife Beulah a double-wide trailer!   

Now that Slater & Rhyno have officially become Team Blue’s top tandem, which combination will be the first to step up to oppose them? And now that Slater has earned a spot on the SmackDown LIVE roster, will he once again do something to mess it all up before he can get his name on the contract?
