Bengaluru, April 3: WWE’s efforts to make the Wrestlemania match card to make a bit shorter have not been successful. Following last night’s Smackdown, we ended up getting the 16th bout for this Sunday Night’s show. The tag team championship from the blue brand will also be on the line as per confirmation by WWE.com. It will be another multi-person tag team match for the belts held by Jimmy and Jey Uso.
Smackdown tag team champions competed in an eight-man tag team match, last night and teamed up with Ricochet & Aleister Black. The Bar and Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev were their opponents and they came up short after the champs hit a double superkick on Rusev. But there was a twist in the tale following the match as Alexa Bliss appeared on the scene.
The official host of Wrestlemania 35 gave us a breaking news as she announced another match for the show. She confirmed The Usos will defend their belts against Ricochet-Aleister Black, The Bar and Shinsuke Nakamura-Rusev in a fatal-4-way affair. It is worth noting that the veteran Usos will be competing at Wrestlemania main card for the very first time as 'the champions'.
Earlier, the speculation was that WWE would pit The Hardy Boyz against them to create a dream match at the showcase of immortals. But both the Hardyz ended up entering the sixth edition of Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Now that the Smackdown tag team titles are on the line, we can hope that the counterparts from the Raw division might also receive good news in due course. It is likely that one last match for the red-strapped tag titles could also be made official for the Wrestlemania pre-show.
