WWE’s The Usos Overcome Drew McIntyre and Sheamus to Retain Undisputed Tag Team Titles on SmackDown

WWE’s The Bloodline got a lot of attention on tonight’s episode of SmackDown, opening and closing the show with a title gold match. It would be The Usos putting their Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships on the line against a team of SmackDown favorites in Drew McIntyre and Sheamus. Both have been a thorn in the side of the Bloodline for some time now, and the impressive duo would go on to give The Usos a run for their money during several parts of this match, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to defeat The Usos, who lost their WWE tag retained. Team Championships.

Sheamus and McIntyre know the Bloodline well and have each tried at one time or another to conquer Roman Reigns and his allies on their own. Later they would team up to even the odds against The Bloodline, and now they’re teaming up to take on The Usos. They would give the champions a hard time and even managed to land a double white noise on the champions.

With Roman Reigns, Sami Zayn and Paul Heyman watching from the back and Solo Sikoa from ringside, Sheamus would gain the upper hand and get Jimmy into the ring single-handedly. Sheamus lifted Jimmy onto his shoulders for another White Noise, but Jey came to help his brother. That’s when Sheamus fended Jey off with a kick, and it would cost him.

When Sheamus kicked Jey, he gave Jimmy room to get away from him just enough, and Jimmy would use that little window to roll up Sheamus. When the referee was focused on the count, Jey used the bottom rope and his feet to keep Jimmy on the ground, which helped Jimmy take the pin and the win.

The Usos Championship reign now stands at 537 days, and they will look to continue that reign as WWE heads towards the Royal Rumble. It’s hard to imagine them not having to defend the championships there again, but we’ll have to wait and see.
