The Usos hit the unlikely champs with everything they had. At the onset of the bout, Jimmy Uso tried to match power with The Man Beast, but paid for that immediately, as Rhyno muscled Uso across the ring. Though the WWE Universe was firmly in the champions’ corner, The Usos succeeded in trapping Slater in theirs, taking control of the bout by force.

Rhyno turned the tides of the bout single-handedly, but The Usos took advantage of a distracted referee to weaken the ECW Original. Jimmy & Jey worked over The Man Beast, but could not keep Rhyno from tagging in a fired-up Slater.

The One-Man Band survived an onslaught of offense from both Usos, who targeted his knee. The Man Beast prevented Slater from tapping out to a Tequila Sunrise from Jey Uso, then tagged into the bout and clobbered Jey out of his highlighter yellow sneakers with a devastating Gore to retain the SmackDown Tag Team Titles, ensuring that the Slater family’s double-wide would be rocking in celebration.
