Are the days numbered for SmackDown Tag Team Champions Heath Slater & Rhyno?
Hey, facts are facts. Health Slater & Rhyno overcame nearly impossible odds at Backlash, surviving the SmackDown Tag Team Championship Tournament to become the inaugural titleholders, while earning Slater a SmackDown LIVE contract in the process.
But is the fairytale almost over for “Beauty and The Man Beast”? After all, as The Ascensions showed us last week, threats are already beginning to come out of the woodwork. Certainly, in the center of a very turbulent tandem division stands The Usos, armed with a whole new ruthless attitude. However, there is also the returning American Alpha who now has Chad Gable medically cleared after Jimmy & Jey’s brutal attack on his knee from several weeks ago. The two teams will square off tonight to determine the new No. 1 contenders for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship.
So, while we’re not necessarily saying that Slater & Rhyno won’t hold on to the titles for long, we are hoping that at least a few of The One Man Band’s offspring are helping to pay the bills.
