Smackdown Tag Team Championship belts

The second championship is he Smackdown Tag Team Championship belts, yes that’s what its called too, and it looks like WWE Raw’s WWE Tag Team Championship belts, but it has silver vs. copper metal and its strap is blue. Here’s a photo with the rest of the gallery at the end of this piece.

SmackDown Tag Team Championship 1

Between now and Backlash, the tag teams of Smackdown Live will compete week in and week out with the winners advancing. The final match of the tournament will be at Backlash on September 11, 2016 where new champions will be crowned.

There are six teams currently involved, but if Heath Slater can find a tag team partner they can enter the tournament making it seven teams and then Shane McMahon will find an eighth team to enter the tournament. The catch for Slater? Slater and his partner have to win the tournament for Heath Slater to get a Smackdown contract.

And, Slater did find a partner and advance in the tournament; Rhyno has partnered with Slater!

The teams involved in this tournament are:

  • The Usos
  • American Alpha
  • Hype Bros
  • Breezango
  • The Ascension
  • The Vaudevillians
  • Heath Slater and Rhyno
  • TBC
