Rusev Day upset The Bar, earn title shot at Hell in a Cell


With the opportunity to challenge The New Day at Hell in a Cell, The Bar and Rusev Day went blow for blow this week on SmackDown. The foursome of Cesaro, Sheamus, Rusev and Aiden English all needed this win for very different reasons.

The Bar were still in search of their first taste of Blue Brand gold. While Rusev Day looked for their biggest win as a duo and build a better case for their recent switch to WWE approved fan favorites.

The final moments of the match featured English making the ultimate sacrifice a teammate could make as he shoved Rusev out of the way so he could eat a Brogue kick.

Off the miss from Sheamus, Rusev landed a Machka kick for the 1-2-3.

Can Rusev Day carry their momentum into this Sunday at Hell in a Cell and pull off another upset win?
