WWE announced during Monday’s episode of Raw that Butch of the Brawling Brutes is set to be the replacement for Drew McIntyre in the Undisputed Tag Team Title match this Friday on SmackDown.
McIntyre was originally scheduled to team with Sheamus this Friday night. However, McIntyre announced on Monday that he is “medically disqualified” to compete on SmackDown.
Butch will now team with Sheamus to challenge the Usos, who successfully defended the WWE Undisputed Tag Team Titles against Riddle and Kevin Owens on Monday’s Raw. Elias, who was supposed to team with Riddle was taken out by The Bloodline before the match.
