RICHMOND, Va. — The Usos seized their opportunity in the Second Chance Challenge, defeating The Hype Bros to advance to the final of the SmackDown Tag Team Championship Tournament.

Jimmy and Jey Uso’s savage attack on Chad Gable’s knee on SmackDown LIVE eliminated American Alpha from the tournament and forced the creation of the contest five days earlier. The Usos proceeded to make the most of the opportunity they had made for themselves

The new-attitude (and new-look) Usos continued their aggressive ways, wearing Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley down with a barrage of strikes and using everything from the ringpost and the barricade outside as tools to gain an edge. Ryder and Rawley would not quit, however, firing back with all the heart they could muster.

The ultimate difference-maker in the match? One team was willing to resort to underhanded tactics. That team was The Usos. Following a chop block by Jey Uso that destroyed Zack Ryder’s knee, the two continued their assault until Jimmy Uso finally forced Long Island Iced-Z to tap out with the Tequila Sunrise submission hold.

After seizing a second chance and beginning a trophy case of shattered patellas, The Usos were now only one win away from becoming the first ever SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
