Royal Rumble 2018 Preview: SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin (2-Out-Of-3 Falls Match)

Technically, Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin already beat The Usos twice. To win the SmackDown Tag Team Titles, however, they’ll have to do it two more times.

The mat mavens will challenge Jimmy & Jey Uso in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match at Royal Rumble, bringing to a head a twisting rivalry that saw Gable & Benjamin take down The Usos in the waning months of 2017 before scratching and clawing their way past the rest of the Tag Team division to a title match on SmackDown LIVE. Despite defeating The Usos in that championship bout, Gable & Benjamin pinned the wrong Uso, leading to a restart of the match when a second referee pointed out the mistake to the primary official.

The Usos were ultimately able to retain and Gable & Benjamin called out the second referee in frustration the following week, only to get SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan instead. While The “Yes!” Man attempted to cool Gable & Benjamin’s tempers, the disappointed duo asked if they had to beat The Usos twice in one night to get the glory they deserved. Voila: A 2-out-of-3 Falls Match.

Can Gable & Benjamin go the distance and finally smash down the walls of The Uso Penitentiary? Or will Jimmy & Jey prove to be just as unbeatable in 2018 as they were in 2017? Tune into the Royal Rumble event, streaming live, Sunday, Jan. 28, on the award-winning WWE Network at a special start time of 7 ET/5 PT to find out.

Chad Gable def. Jey Uso

With their squads poised to clash in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles this Sunday at the Royal Rumble event, Chad Gable took on Jey Uso, as Shelton Benjamin and Jimmy Uso patrolled ringside.

After Benjamin & Gable executed a blindside attack of The Usos last week, the match was high-octane and incredibly physical. In the height of the action, Gable weathered Jey’s explosive attack, connecting with a clutch kick and planting his opponent with the Rolling German Suplex to claim a major win heading into the title bout at Royal Rumble.

Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable demanded justice

Infuriated that their SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match last week was restarted after the two illegal men were involved in the pinfall, Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable hit the scene on Team Blue this week demanding justice.

After watching Benjamin & Gable air their grievances, SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan arrived, and although he sympathized with Gable & Benjamin, he also stated that last week’s decision was final. However, when Gable began to wonder out loud if he and his partner had to beat The Usos twice in one night to prove they were worthy of the titles, The “Yes!” Man got an idea: a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match between the two teams with the titles on the line at Royal Rumble!

Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable thought they had defeated The Usos and won the SmackDown Tag Team Titles last week. The referee counted three as Gable pinned Jimmy Uso, setting off a celebration. However, the official soon realized that neither Gable nor Jimmy were the legal Superstars in the battle, rendering his decision null and void, and he ordered the match to restart. The Usos stayed focused after the restart and walked out victorious with their titles in hand.

However, Gable & Benjamin are not going away quietly following the controversial ending. WWE.com has learned that the two are “demanding justice” after last week’s battle. What exactly do the two mat wrestling masters have in mind?

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos def. Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable

After weeks of tit-for-tat and a key non-title pinfall victory by Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable, the explosive tandem finally got their first two-on-two opportunity at the SmackDown Tag Team Titles against The Usos. The incredibly action-packed contest saw momentum shift back and forth several times. It appeared that Benjamin & Gable had picked up the victory when Benjamin pinned Jimmy 1-2-3 after he and Gable executed a vicious double team maneuver. However, it was soon revealed that Jey was actually the legal man, and thus, the match was restarted.

With a new lease on life, Jimmy & Jey recovered, weathering Benjamin & Gable’s storm and superkicking both Superstars into oblivion and getting the win after a big splash.
