WWE Backlash 2016 Spoilers & WWE Smackdown Live Fallout: BIG Change To Smackdown Tag Team Championship Tournament Finals As One Team Is Out?!

Backlash 2016 Smackdown torurnament for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship

WWE Backlash 2016 spoilers and WWE Smackdown Live Fallout.

As a result of the beatdown the Usos inflicted on American Alpha after their match, AA won’t compete in the WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship finale at Backlash 2016. The reason given was that Chad Gable sprained his MCL and that it would keep him sidelined for 2-4 weeks.

Instead the Usos will take on the Hype Bros at Backlash 2016 in a Second Changes match with the winner of that match facing Heath Slater and Rhyno foe the new Smackdown Tag Team Championship belts on the same night at the same PPV.

This was announced by Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon on the Smackdown Live after show Talking Smack with Renee Young.


So you can disregard this…

Also, if Heath Slater and Rhyno win the match at Backlash 2016 Slater gets a contract, I imagine this odd couple will win the tourney either due to a tired opponent from Usos vs Hype Bros or if Usos advance then shenanigans by American Alpha.
