It’s a new day, yes it is. Or at least Kofi Kingston, Big E & Xavier Woods are hoping it will be when they challenge The Usos for their first SmackDown Tag Team Championship at WWE Money in the Bank, streaming live Sunday, June 18 at 8 ET/5 PT on WWE Network.
On the very same night that the longest-reigning Tag Team Champions in WWE history made their long-awaited reemergence on SmackDown LIVE — their first such appearance since moving to the blue brand in the Superstar Shake-up — they quickly made their case to be The Usos’ next challengers, right as Jimmy & Jey were crowing over their two consecutive title defenses against Breezango. Back to full force after an ankle injury felled Kofi Kingston last month, ya boys declared they were rested, ready, and sanctioned by SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon to challenge The Usos straight out of the gate.
Prediction…the Uso’s to retain
