He then went to say that he had a team in mind. One that was worthy of holding the Tag Titles. He called out the team of Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan. He then handed the Titles to them.
This bought out The USO’s. They talked about how everyone who had worn those Titles had earned the Right to wear it. They then Challenged the team of Bryan and Rowan for the Titles.
Both teams had an interesting back and forth match. However the match ended with Rowan hitting the Iron Claw. With that, Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan have now been crowned The New SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
This is completely out of the blue. But a good decision, considering the condition of the SmackDown Tag Division at the moment. It will be interesting to see who will the new champions first opponents be.
