WWE News: Rusev Day Advanced To The Finale Of Smackdown Tag Team Tournament
Paige announced a Smackdown tag team tournament two weeks ago. This was an interesting way to decide the number one contenders for the Smackdown tag team championships. The New Day has won back the titles two nights after Summerslam. Now it is their turn to defend it against an unknown opponent. Last week, the tournament kicked off with a triple threat match.
The Bar faced Gallows-Anderson and The Colons to come up as the winner. They became the first team for the final match. The second tag team match took place last night on Smackdown with a lineup of Rusev Day (Rusev-Aiden English) vs. The Usos (Jimmy–Jey Uso) vs. SAnitY (Eric Young-Killian Dain). The winner would have joined The Bar in the final match.
Jey Uso took control in the early point of the matchup against Aiden English. Jey threw him into the top ropes but did not realize that Killian Dain made the tag. Dain thrashed Jey outside the ring to hurt him. Young received the tag to double team against Jey.
Dain tagged back into the match to deliver a drop-kick on Jey. It was surprising a heavy man like Dain coming up with such an incredible move. Dain threw Jey outside the ring again to make the tag to Young who delivered an elbow drop on the floor! The punishment on Jey continued for sometimes until Jimmy received the tag. But Rusev tagged in himself to give the fight back to Eric Young.
Rusev gave a spinning kick to Young before taking out Wolfe from the apron. All the other outsiders arrived inside the ring to ensue an utter chaos. Jey Uso put down them with a superfly. Rusev went for a high-flying move of his own but ate a kick from Jey. Young rolled up Rusev to almost pick up the win.
But, Aiden English broke the pinfall to keep Rusev alive in the match. Rusev hit a Machka Kick on Young to get the pinfall win. As a result of this victory, Rusev and Aiden English has now advanced to the finale of Smackdown tag team tournament. They will now face off The Bar, on next week’s Smackdown. The winner will face The New Day at Hell in a Cell for the tag team championships.
