WrestleMania Backlash saw Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik Mysterio team up to face off against Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler for the Smackdown Tag Team Championships.

Despite the odds being stacked against them due to an unforeseen attack at the hands of Ziggler and Roode prior to the match, Rey and Dominik persevered and beat Ziggler and Roode for the Smackdown Tag Team Titles.

The two would make history as the first-ever father/son tag team champions in the company. Rey and Dominik Mysterio have been engaged in a feud with Roman Reigns and the Usos for the past couple of months and now it seems the two teams will be battling it out again soon.

WWE officially announced that Rey and Dominik Mysterio will be defending the Smackdown Tag Team Titles against Jimmy and Jey Uso on the kick-off show at WWE Money in the Bank on July 18th.

Universal Champion Roman Reigns hasn’t been shy about sharing his grand vision for SmackDown, and that vision includes his cousins hoisting tag team gold for the seventh time.

The Usos will have an opportunity to do exactly that when they challenge The Mysterios for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles this Sunday at WWE Money in the Bank.

The Mysterios only recently returned to the blue brand, but the two premier tandems have immediately become embroiled in a nasty rivalry, as Rey and Dominik have routinely provided backup for Edge during The Rated-R Superstar’s ongoing crusade against Reigns.

At the conclusion of a recent SmackDown, all six Superstars exchanged haymakers, but the evening ended with The Mysterios holding down Jey Uso as Edge applied an excruciating chair-leg assisted crossface.

With animosity at a boiling point, what will happen when The Usos attempt to capture the SmackDown Tag Team Titles for the fifth time against the first father-son Tag Team Champions in WWE history?

Find out at WWE Money in the Bank, streaming Sunday at 8 ET/5 PT on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else!

Before their title match, Rey and Dominik Mysterio will be teaming up with Edge as they take on Roman Reigns and The Usos in a six-man tag team match on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown. We will have to wait if the Mysterios will be able to retain their titles against The Usos at the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view.
