Tag team number one contender's match set for WWE SmackDown


A match to decide The Usos' next challengers is scheduled for tonight's episode of SmackDown.

It will be The New Day facing Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin to determine who will be facing The Usos at Fastlane. WWE had Daniel Bryan announce the match on Twitter last night: "I’ve heard enough insults and pancakes being thrown around. So I'm making it official. #TheNewDay will take on @wwegable and @sheltyb803 on #SDLive... and the winner will face @WWEUsos at #WWEFastlane!"

The New Day defeated Gable & Benjamin last week after the heels interrupted Big E while he was trying to break a pancake-eating record. WWE has also been indicating that The Usos vs. The Bludgeon Brothers may be the direction for the SmackDown Tag Team titles, so we'll see if Harper & Rowan factor into the equation for Fastlane.

Charlotte Flair, Naomi & Becky Lynch vs. The Riott Squad is set for tonight as well, along with WWE following up on last week's additions to the Fastlane main event. It will be AJ Styles defending his WWE Championship against Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler, and Baron Corbin in a fatal five-way match at the March 11th pay-per-view.
