Another SmackDown Tag Team Championship Contenders Tournament First Round match has been announced for tonight’s show.
On the January 13 edition of WWE SmackDown, Adam Pearce announced that there will be a SmackDown Tag Team Championship Contenders Tournament to determine the next challengers for The Usos.
Pearce then went on to announce that Drew McIntyre and Sheamus will face The Viking Raiders as one of the First Round matches.
WWE has now announced a second First Round bout on tonight’s SmackDown with Butch and Ridge Holland of The Brawling Brutes facing Imperium’s Ludvig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci.
The Usos are the current Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions, but they will start to defend the Raw and SmackDown titles separately starting this Monday.
On the January 23 edition of WWE Raw for the 30th Anniversary, The Usos will defend the Raw Tag Team Titles against The Judgment Day’s Dominik Mysterio and Damian Priest.
These two tournament matches on tonight’s episode join the lineup, which includes Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens signing the contract for their Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match at WWE Royal Rumble.
