Happy Rusev Day! SmackDown Live Opens with a Bang
SmackDown Live, in my opinion, has the best tag team lineups currently. RAW's aren't bad, but when you have The Usos, The New Day, Rusev, and Aiden English, then Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin, it's hard to one-up them. After Daniel Bryan opened up SmackDown talking about the fate of the now relinquished US Title, one thing led to another and every tag team came out and wanted a shot at the Usos. It was a weird transition.
Since SmackDown was commercial-free for its first hour, we got an uninterrupted three-way match (The New Day, Rusev, and English vs. Gable and Benjamin), and if you missed it, you need to watch it. All three teams brought their A game, making it a high-flying and exciting way to open SmackDown.
In the end, Gable and Benjamin won the chance to go against the Usos, and it was a well-deserved win. The promo leading up to it is one of the best writing WWE has done in a while, and I for one am excited to see next week's match.
Oh, and Happy Rusev Day!
