WWE News: Huge Championship Match Confirmed For This Week’s Smackdown
WWE is leaving no stones unturned to make the weekly shows loaded as 2019 begins. There have been complaints from the fans about quality contents, especially on Monday Night Raw. So the McMahon family has taken things over after TLC PPV. They promised fresh things, moving forward. This is why we are getting a packed card on the first episode of WWE Raw, tonight.
Smackdown Live will receive the same treatment as well. A championship match is now official on tomorrow night’s episode. The tag team championships will be in the line from the blue brand. The champions, The Bar (Sheamus and Cesaro) will defend it against The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso) in a two on two bouts.
WWE.com confirmed the match with the following statement,
“In a high-stakes match, Jimmy & Jey will face off against Sheamus & Cesaro and, if The Usos can prevail, they will receive a future SmackDown Tag Team Title opportunity. Can The Usos carry their 2018 success into the new year? Or, will The Bar bring the storied tag team back down to earth? Find out this Tuesday night on SmackDown LIVE.”
The tag team division of Smackdown Live mainly deals with the three teams which are The Bar, The Usos and The New Day. They have been involving in feuds for the better part of 2018. In fact, The Usos have already received the title opportunity, a few weeks ago. So it’s a bonus for the Samoan Twins to kick things off in 2018.
We should also mention that The Usos have teamed up with Gallows & Anderson to defeat The Bar and SAnitY in an eight-man tag team match on last week’s Smackdown. But it was not The Usos who got the win. Rather it was Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson who earned a pinfall win on the champions. This makes them the number one contenders, automatically.
Giving a title shot to Gallows-Anderson would also make things fresh on Smackdown Live. It’s fully not clear how The Usos are receiving another title opportunity on Tuesday Night. We might receive a fallout on this situation as the show airs tomorrow night. New teams like SAnitY and Good Brothers deserve more chances in 2019 or else things will become stale.
Another huge matchup is official to take place on Smackdown Live. Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Carmella will compete in a triple threat match. The winner will receive a shot at SmackDown Live Women’s Championship. She will challenge Asuka for the title at the Royal Rumble PPV event. It takes place on January 27th at the Chase Field Arena in Phoenix, Arizona.
