American Alpha def. Bray Wyatt & Randy Orton of The Wyatt Family

With American Alpha seizing their first SmackDown Tag Team Championship on the final SmackDown LIVE of 2016, Bray Wyatt & Randy Orton came to Baton Rouge looking to get it back.

However, in the height of the subsequent contest, some accidental miscommunication by Luke Harper allowed Jason Jordan & Chad Gable to retain when Gable rolled up Orton after Harper inadvertently distracted The Viper.

After the bell, things quickly turned tense between Orton and Harper, causing Wyatt to accidentally get knocked to the ground when Harper kicked The Eater of Worlds when aiming for Orton. Bray arose and stared down both of his followers before promptly exiting. Three Huge Matches Announced For Next Week’s SmackDown LIVE

American Alpha def. Breezango

The new SmackDown Tag Team Champions ain’t messing around. Fresh off their breakthrough title win last week, Jason Jordan & Chad Gable got right back on the saddle to square off against Breezango in a non-title match.

Jordan & Gable kept their hot streak going, bringing an offensive onslaught to Tyler Breeze & Fandango. The champions looked as crisp as ever, ultimately finishing off Breeze with Grand Amplitude in near-record time for the win.

After the contest, The Wyatt Family appeared on the TitanTron to warn the new champions that they would be coming for them next week.’s Top 25 Matches Of 2016

#13. The Revival vs. American Alpha — NXT Tag Team Championship Match (NXT TakeOver: Dallas)

WE SAID: American Alpha’s meteoric rise to the top of NXT’s tag team division was destined to end with them capturing the NXT Tag Team Titles. Reigning kingpins The Revival wanted nothing more than to put an end to Jason Jordan & Chad Gable’s ascension. The self-proclaimed “top guys” pulled out every dirty trick and double-team in the book to try and hold onto their titles in Dallas, but there was no stopping the mat mavens’ ascension. American Alpha thwarted The Revival at every turn and caught Scott Dawson off-guard with Grand Amplitude to capture the titles. — BOBBY MELOK

THEY SAID: “It was our shot at redemption. Chad, being an Olympian, wound up finishing ninth place and came up short from what his goals and his dreams were. I was in the NCAA Division I nationals and came up short from a national championship and All-American status. [This match] was something we needed as a tag team to solidify how good we felt we were.” — JASON JORDAN

“Being emotionally invested along with the fans is what made it special. A lot of them knew the story of how we came together. Things weren’t working out for Jason for a long time; he’d been in NXT for a long time. People understand trying stuff and stuff not clicking, but when you get hold of that one thing and it starts working, they can see it. When they saw it all come to a head and finally work out for somebody, they can identify that and really feel like they’re a part of it with us.” — CHAD GABLE

American Alpha captured the SmackDown Tag Team Championship in a Four Corners Elimination Match

The best tag team on SmackDown LIVE is ready, willing … and champions!

Excitement was at a premium in the Four Corners Elimination Match for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship on the Wild Card Finals. Heath Slater & Rhyno, The Usos, American Alpha and Randy Orton & Luke Harper all were looking to leave as champions in the always competitive Team Blue Tag Team division and all four teams brought the goods on the Wild Card Finals.

The first elimination occurred when Jimmy Uso hit Heath Slater with a gnarly superkick to pin Slater and eliminate Beauty & The Man Beast. Next to go were The Usos when Chad Gable caught Jey Uso by surprise with a rollup. This left American Alpha against The Wyatt Family, who were completely fresh as they had strategically not entered the match up until that point. Jason Jordan & Gable also had to recover from a blindside attack by The Usos after they eliminated the twins. Jordan & Gable withstood Orton & Harper’s best and after a thrilling series of exchanges, in the end it was an accidental collision between Harper & Orton that allowed Gable & Jordan to capitalize by hitting Orton with Grand Amplitude to become the new SmackDown Tag Team Champions.

After the match, as American Alpha celebrated their huge victory, The Viper & Harper had a tense exchange before Bray Wyatt had to come in and diffuse the situation.
