The Usos have been an undeniable force in WWE’s tag team division since long before the Raw and SmackDown titles were unified. After defeating RK-Bro to become the undisputed champions, Jimmy and Jey have run roughshod over the entire division. The Street Profits felt like they got screwed when they lost their title match at Money in the Bank, and now they’ll get a chance to prove it.
WWE announced that The Street Profits will get a rematch with The Usos at SummerSlam on their website today. When Jimmy Uso pinned Montez, his shoulder was clearly not on the mat. After the controversial finish at MITB, Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins don’t believe the hype about Jimmy and Jey being “undisputed.”
“The Usos have been on an absolute tear since becoming champions, overcoming the best that SmackDown has to offer in their record-setting reign, including unifying the Raw and SmackDown Tag Team Championships against RK-Bro and emerging victorious in a close battle with Shinsuke Nakamura & Riddle on the blue brand.
Although Jimmy & Jey also officially retained the tag team gold against explosive former titleholders Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins at the WWE Money in the Bank Premium Live Event, a replay showed that Ford’s shoulder was clearly off the canvas before the three-count.”
In addition to the newly-announced tag team title bout, SummerSlam already has several huge matches announced. Bobby Lashley will defend the US Championship against Theory. Pat McAfee will seek revenge against Happy Corbin. In the main event, Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar will square off for the Undisputed WWE Universal title in a last-man-standing match.
SummerSlam will go down on July 30 from Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee. It’s considered one of WWE’s biggest events of the year. There are sure to be more high-stakes matchups added shortly, so stick with Ringside News for all the latest!
