There are new number-one contenders for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Titles, and a Tag Team Championship match is set for February 10.
On tonight’s SmackDown, the makeshift tag team of Ricochet and Braun Strowman defeated Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci of Imperium to become the number one contenders for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship.
They will face Jimmy and Jey Uso for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship on Friday, February 10.
Strowman and Ricochet were not originally in the tag team tournament. However, they took the place of Drew McIntyre and Sheamus after a pre-match attack from the Viking Raiders prevented the Celtic connection from competing in a semi-final match against Hit Row on Friday, January 27.
Also set for February 10, a Fatal 4-Way will take place between Rey Mysterio, Karrion Kross, Santos Escobar, and Madcap Moss. The winner of this fatal 4-way will go on to face GUNTHER at a later date for the WWE Intercontinental Championship.
