It has been a relatively busy episode of WWE SmackDown proper from the beginning, although WWE may need simply teased one thing large comparatively early on. In the course of the episode, Adam Pearce is attempting to navigate the backwards and forwards between Sheamus and Drew McIntyre, who are actually a full-on Tag Group. The 2 are getting one another hyped for a brand new match that Pearce says will decide the brand new #1 contenders for the SmackDown Tag Group Championships. It is particularly stated that it is going to be for the SmackDown Tag Group Championships, suggesting that the Uncooked and SmackDown Titles will probably be break up earlier than the winner of the match can face The Usos for the Titles.

Proper now The Bloodline reign supreme over SmackDown, however their energy extends past simply SmackDown because of being Undisputed Champions. They’ve the WWE Championship and the Uncooked Tag Group Championships as properly, and it does not appear to be they may lose their Titles anytime quickly.
