Tag Team title open challenge set for WWE SmackDown


A Tag Team title match will take place on tonight's episode of SmackDown.

WWE has announced that SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Big E) will issue an open challenge for their titles tonight. The episode is taking place at Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama.

Tonight's SmackDown is the first episode of the show since Survivor Series. New Day took part in a non-title triple threat match between tag team champions at the pay-per-view, with Raw Tag Team Champions The Viking Raiders defeating New Day and NXT Tag Team Champions Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish.

SmackDown got two wins against Raw and NXT at Survivor Series. They won the men's elimination tag match, and Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode won a tag team battle royal on the pre-show.

Roman Reigns last eliminated NXT's Keith Lee to win the men's elimination tag match for Team SmackDown.

WWE is also hyping that Bray Wyatt will reveal a new face in the Firefly Fun House tonight. Wyatt retained his Universal Championship against Daniel Bryan at Survivor Series.
