– As noted, Tyler Breeze and Fandango won a Beat The Clock Challenge over The Ascension, American Alpha and The Colons on tonight’s WWE SmackDown to earn a shot against SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos at the May 21st WWE Backlash pay-per-view. This Fallout video from SmackDown features the new #1 contenders celebrating backstage like only Breezango can.
– As noted, a pre-recorded Rusev promo aired on this week’s SmackDown with The Bulgarian Brute demanding a WWE Title shot from Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan at the June 18th Money In the Bank pay-per-view. Rusev has been out of action since February after undergoing shoulder surgery and has not appeared on SmackDown since going over in the “Superstar Shakeup” a few weeks ago. He says the only way he will wrestle for Shane and Bryan is if he gets the title shot. Rusev took to Twitter after the promo aired and wrote the following on why he’s issuing an ultimatum to the SmackDown bosses:
I’m just tired…… After all I’ve done I have NEVER had a championship match. I was undefeated for a year! Now it’s My way or the highway

– As noted, Jinder Mahal will get his WWE Title shot from Randy Orton at the May 21st Backlash pay-per-view from Rosemont, IL. We still have several weeks until the pay-per-view but it looks like Jinder may bring the title into the Allstate Arena with him as he stole the belt from Orton on tonight’s SmackDown. WWE did an angle where Jinder and The Singh Brothers (The Bollywood Boyz) beat Orton down and ran away with the title. Video from the segment is below:
