SmackDown Tag Team title match official for WWE WrestleMania 35


A fatal four-way SmackDown Tag Team title match has been made official for WrestleMania 35.

The Usos will defend their titles against Ricochet & Aleister Black, Cesaro & Sheamus, and Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev on Sunday. That was confirmed on tonight's SmackDown, with Alexa Bliss making the announcement after The Usos, Ricochet & Black defeated Cesaro, Sheamus, Nakamura & Rusev in an eight-man tag match.

Rusev was pinned in the eight-man tag after The Usos gave him a double superkick. After Bliss made her announcement, the four teams brawled, Black laid out Cesaro with Black Mass, and Ricochet hit a dive onto a pile on the outside.

Bliss is the host of WrestleMania 35. In storyline, The Usos having to face four teams is punishment for them forfeiting against Big E & Xavier Woods in last week's gauntlet match.

Ricochet & Black will also be challenging for War Raiders' NXT Tag Team titles at TakeOver: New York on Friday night. Ricochet & Black were the winners of this year's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
