New Tag Team Champions Were Crowned On Smackdown, And One Superstar Beat Them Down After The Match


Matt and Jeff Hardy just became the new WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions tonight, when they defeated the Usos with a Twist of Fate that led directly into a Swanton Bomb. This was after they didn’t take part in the Four-Way match for those titles at WrestleMania, where the Usos retained against the Bar, Rusev and Nakamura, and Aleister Black and Ricochet. The Hardyz, meanwhile, only appeared in the André The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, giving the impression that their heyday was probably over. Nevertheless, the veteran team is now at the top of the division once again. You can see the finish of tonight’s match right here:

The Hardyz only had a moment to celebrate, however, because they were soon interrupted by Lars Sullivan, who finally made his main roster debut last night on Raw. Matt and Jeff were surprised and confused when Sullivan’s entrance music hit, and the big man got in the ring and beat down both brothers, ruining their big moment. Here’s that video:

This was a good way for Sullivan to look really strong, but he won’t really be able to feud with the new tag champs without a partner. On the other hand, Braun Strowman also appeared on Smackdown tonight, and wouldn’t they make an intimidating duo?
