Tag team tournament finals set for WWE SmackDown next week


It will be Cesaro & Sheamus vs. Rusev & Aiden English in the finals of SmackDown's tag team tournament next week.

Rusev & English won tonight's triple threat tournament match, defeating SAnitY (Eric Young & Killian Dain) and The Usos. For the finish, Rusev hit the Machka Kick on Young after English broke up a pin where Young rolled up Rusev and had his feet on the ropes. The ending furthered the story of Rusev Day being back on the same page after the dissension that had been building between Rusev, English, and Lana.

Cesaro & Sheamus defeated Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson and The Colons in the first tournament match last Tuesday. The team that wins Cesaro & Sheamus vs. Rusev & English will challenge for The New Day's Tag Team titles at Hell in a Cell on September 16.

The Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana is hosting next week's SmackDown. The episode is the go-home show for Hell in a Cell.
