Smackdown Tag Team Tournament First Round Match
The Usos vs The Bar
Jey and Sheamus start the match off with Jey rocking him with a series of right hands before dropkicking him out of the ring as we head to break.
-We return to the action to Cesaro in control of Jey, getting a quick two count as soon as we come back before The Bar double team Jey for a quick two count. Sheamus tries his best to keep Jey grounded for several minutes before Sheamus goes shoulder first into the ring post. Jimmy gets the tag as Cesaro does before hitting a Samoan drop for a quick two count and drops Cesaro with an enzuigiri before taking out Sheamus with a tope to the outside. Once back in the ring Jimmy hits a diving cross body for a near fall before Cesaro launches Jimmy off of the top turnbuckle and into the barricade as we go back to commercial.
We come back to Jimmy hitting a whisper in the wind before hitting a superkick and Jey hits a splash off of the top for a near fall. The Bar then counters two splashes by The Usos before Sheamus rolls Jey him up for the pin and the win.
Winner: The Bar defeat The Usos to move on to the next round of the Smackdown Tag Team Tournament.
