WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions
The Hardy Boyz defeated The Usos (c) to become champions
- The Hardys find a lot of success early on. Well, until the Usos toss Matt into a barricade.
- Matt gets worked ever before a hot tag to Jeff as the commercial break ends.
- Whisper in the Wind lands to a big ass pop. Poetry in Motion, Twist of Fate are next.
- The Usos hit Jeff with superkick and Uso Splash, but he kicks out.
- For some reason Jeff thinks rolling under a Double Uso was good and ate a shin to the head.
- Either way, the Hardy Boyz finish off Usos and win the tag team titles!!
- Lars Sullivan cuts off the celebration and lays a beating on both Hardy Boyz. He's number 28 to cross brands before the SUPE SHAKE. Waddup.
- Becky seems like she's putting on a...different voice? I dunno. Maybe it's because she's talked more in the last week than any other in her life.
- She gets great chants.
- She knows she has a target on her back and is ready to defend.
- She's blindsided by a huge WOMEN'S RIGHT from Lacey Evans.
- Becky got over that punch really well and sold like crazy.

- Sheamus gets hit with Trouble in Paradise, and that's a wrap.
10- Perfect, 9- MOTY Territory, 8- Excellent, 7- Great, 6- Good, 5- Average to above average, 4- Slightly below average, 3 or below: Poor
Each match starts at a 5 and slides up and down based on entertainment, execution, time, environment, reaction and stakes. The ratings are in no way an indication of a "star rating," which is a completely different system. A standard, non-offensive "TV match" lands at a 5.The gap between 5.75-6 is generally the largest, with anything reaching 6 being recommended viewing.
These are opinions, and incredibly inconsistent ones. Don't take them too seriously, and have (and share) your own!
