Chad Gable def. Tyler Breeze

American Alpha and Breezango had a backstage altercation earlier in the evening revolving around Chad Gable insulting Tyler Breeze’s hair, leading to this one-on-one contest on SmackDown LIVE.

Breeze, clearly enraged by the hair insult, brought the fury to Gable. Fandango’s antics on the outside were neutralized by Jason Jordan and, in the end, Breeze’s efforts were not enough as the former Olympian defeated him with a bridging German Suplex.

In SmackDown LIVE’s main event, American Alpha took on Bray Wyatt & Randy Orton for the right to become the new No. 1 contenders for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship.

American Alpha, Orton & Wyatt To Battle For Right To Face SmackDown Tag Team Champions Heath Slater & Rhyno

The WWE TLC opponents for SmackDown Tag Team Champions Heath Slater & Rhyno will be determined Tuesday, Nov. 29, when American Alpha face the destructive duo of Randy Orton & Bray Wyatt on SmackDown LIVE.

Jason Jordan & Chad Gable looked like they had the No. 1 contender status locked up a week earlier, having prevailed in a Tag Team Turmoil Match against The Usos, The Hype Bros, Breezango, The Vaudevillains and The Ascension on SmackDown LIVE.

It was only after their hard-fought victory, however, that American Alpha learned there is still one more team to defeat before moving on to the champions: The New Wyatt Family. While pledging to beat down Jordan & Gable, the venomous pairing of Orton & Wyatt agreed to give the former NXT Tag Team Champions a week “to catch their breath” before entering battle.

American Alpha overcame five teams in Tag Team Turmoil…but it’s not over

Six of SmackDown LIVE’s elite tag teams competed in a Tag Team Turmoil Match to determine who would face Heath Slater & Rhyno at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs. The rules of Tag Team Turmoil are very simple — two teams begin the match. When one team is eliminated, be it by pinfall, submission, count-out or disqualification, another team enters the contest. This process goes on until all teams have entered and there is only one team left standing.

The Ascension and The Hype Bros kicked things off, with Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley getting the win the Hype Ryder. Breezango then entered the fray and Fandango and Tyler Breeze bested the Bros with the Slingshot Elbow. American Alpha was the next out and they went on an absolute tear, defeating Breezango and The Vaudevillains in succession.

In the final round of the tumultuous contest, Jason Jordan & Chad Gable squared off with longstanding rivals The Usos. After a thrilling few minutes of action that saw momentum shift several times over, Jordan and Gable were able to gut out the victory over The Brothers Uce with Grand Amplitude.

However, they were unable to enjoy their triumph for very long as, just when they thought it was over, The New Wyatt Family appeared on the TitanTron. Bray Wyatt claimed that American Alpha had yet to defeat all the teams on SmackDown LIVE and that he would team up with Randy Orton to clash with Jordan and Gable next week.
