Two out of three falls tag team title match official for Royal Rumble


Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin made the most of their mic time tonight (Jan. 9) on SmackDown, until they didn't. Complete with their very own ‘Free The Tag Titles” hashtag, the wrestling duo pleaded their case on SmackDown until they pulled an AJ Styles.

One week removed from winning the Blue Brand tag titles by pinning the wrong Uso, Gable and Benjamin cut a promo but were stopped by GM Daniel Bryan.

As Gable complained, thanks to instant replay, they had to beat The Usos twice in one night, a light bulb and GOAT face washed over Bryan.

There it is, The Usos will put their titles on the line versus Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin in a two out of three falls match at the Royal Rumble.

Is it time for American Alpha 2.0 to get a run with the titles? Or does the reinvention of The Usos add another chapter?

The updated Royal Rumble match card:

  • Royal Rumble (Men)
  • Royal Rumble (Women)
  • Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman vs. Kane (Universal championship)
  • AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn (WWE championship)
  • US Title Tournament Final
  • Seth Rollins & Jason Jordan vs. Cesaro & Sheamus
  • The Usos vs. Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin (2 out of 3 falls for the SD tag championship)
