Which Raw Superstar(s) were you most excited to see on SmackDown LIVE?
After The Hardy Boyz were forced to relinquish the SmackDown Tag Team Titles last week on the blue brand, Shane McMahon promised to crown new champions here tonight. Of course, Shane first verbally lambasted the people of Louisville before announcing that he had chosen Daniel Bryan & Rowan to be the new SmackDown Tag Team Champions. However, before he could bestow the titles upon them, Raw Superstars The Usos arrived and, via the “Wild Card Rule,” convinced Shane that Bryan & Rowan should have to earn the titles … in a match against The Usos right now for the vacant championships!
Shane co-signed and the two teams went at it, with Bryan and Rowan looking to earn the titles they were almost given by surviving The Uso Penitentiary. In a ferocious battle, Bryan and Rowan looked to corner and ground The Usos as often as possible. Jimmy & Jey refused to stay down though, battling back and seemingly closing in on the victory that would see them take the SmackDown Tag Team Titles to Raw. In the closing moments, Rowan withstood a barrage of superkicks and connected with the Iron Claw to Jey that secured the three-count and the SmackDown Tag Team Titles.
