SmackDown Tag Team Champions Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio will defend their titles during Sunday’s WWE Money In the Bank Kickoff pre-show.
WWE has announced that The Usos will challenge The Mysterios for the titles on Sunday’s Kickoff.
This will be the fourth title defense for Rey and Dominik since winning the titles from Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler on May 16 at WrestleMania Backlash. They won the rematch on the May 28 SmackDown, and then retained over The Usos twice on the June 4 SmackDown, once by DQ due to interference by WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
Tonight’s SmackDown will be headlined by The Usos and Reigns vs. The Mysterios and WWE Hall of Famer Edge in six-man action. Edge will then challenge Reigns at Money In the Bank.
Stay tuned for more on Sunday’s WWE Money In the Bank pay-per-view, which will air live from the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.
Universal Champion Roman Reigns hasn’t been shy about sharing his grand vision for SmackDown, and that vision includes his cousins hoisting tag team gold for the seventh time.Title Match Announce For WWE Money In The Bank Kickoff
The Usos will have an opportunity to do exactly that when they challenge The Mysterios for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles this Sunday at WWE Money in the Bank.
The Mysterios only recently returned to the blue brand, but the two premier tandems have immediately become embroiled in a nasty rivalry, as Rey and Dominik have routinely provided backup for Edge during The Rated-R Superstar’s ongoing crusade against Reigns.
At the conclusion of a recent SmackDown, all six Superstars exchanged haymakers, but the evening ended with The Mysterios holding down Jey Uso as Edge applied an excruciating chair-leg assisted crossface.
With animosity at a boiling point, what will happen when The Usos attempt to capture the SmackDown Tag Team Titles for the fifth time against the first father-son Tag Team Champions in WWE history?
