American Alpha

Moments ago on Talking Smack, Shane McMahon announced that American Alpha has been pulled from the Smackdown Tag Team Title Tournament finals match that was set for this Sunday to crown the first ever Smackdown Tag Team Champions.

WWE ran an angle earlier tonight on Smackdown where The Usos turned heel and attacked both Chad Gable and Jason Jordan after American Alpha defeated them quickly to advance to the finals this Sunday. The angle focuses on an injury for Gable.

As a replacement, it was announced that The Usos would take on The Hype Bros at Backlash this Sunday with the winning team moving on to the finals to face the team of Heath Slater and Rhyno to crown the first ever Smackdown Tag Team Champions.

  1. the uso’s are more entertaining as heel than face this way they won’t wait to do their moves when they shout out to the crowd with (US-O)

  2. Damn it! Then again if American Alpha put over Rhyno and Heath Slator it would’ve been horrible but now The Usos have another chance at the Tag Team Titles and their last run as Tag Team Champions was boring as .!

  3. The whole point of this is for Slater and Rhyno to win the titles without having to go over American Alpha to do it. The whole Slater contract storyline basically demands that he win the tag titles or there’s no payoff.
