SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bludgeon Brothers def. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson (Kickoff Match)

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bludgeon Brothers def. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson (Kickoff Match)

CHICAGO — Consider the good brothers bludgeoned:

That the good brothers — two of the highest-profile acquisitions over the past few years — haven’t held a title for more than a year gave the challengers a little extra incentive to come out swinging against the fearsome Bludgeon Brothers. Unfortunately, their enthusiasm led them right into Harper & Rowan’s unorthodox, effective tandem offense. When Gallows found himself taken out by a double dropkick on the ramp, Anderson was caught staring down a two-on-one deficit against the champions.

Rowan did his best to pancake Anderson into submission, but thanks to a few well-timed blows and a spinebuster to Harper, Anderson weathered the storm and tagged in his partner. Now legal, The Suntan Biker Man quickly shook off the cobwebs and led the good brothers in some tag-team offense of their own. The challengers eventually managed to turn the tables and isolate Harper in a 2-on-1 attack, but before they could execute the Magic Killer, Rowan stormed the ring and tackled Anderson to the ground, leaving Gallows open to a tremendous powerbomb that sealed the match.
