The Usos def. Bobby Roode & Chad Gable
In case you missed it last week, Bobby Roode & Chad Gable have embraced the chaos, thrown sportsmanship to the winds and adopted a new, markedly meaner attitude. Nastiness certainly looked good on them even in defeat, but as they learned on Raw, they have a ways to go to catch up with the inventors of the form. Following an open challenge of sorts, The Usos — who hit their stride after finding their own mean streak a few years ago — came over from SmackDown LIVE and humbled the former Raw Tag Team Champions in a nasty little match that showcased Jimmy & Jey’s sharp in-ring chops and how very, very crowded the Raw Tag Team division is becoming.
The Usos seemed to think this was going to be a cakewalk, and the glorious duo quickly convinced them otherwise, with Gable proving to be a pitbull on the mat. But when the tide turned, it turned quickly, as The Usos pounced with a series of superkicks — one to Gable, one to Roode and then two more to Gable — before finishing the Minnesota stretcher off with a Double Uce. Roode & Gable still looked great, but this was The Usos’ stark reminder to a Raw roster that might have forgotten: When it comes to all things bad — be they bad attitudes or bad men — the line forms behind them.
