WWE crowns new number one contenders to SmackDown Tag Team titles

A fatal four-way match on Friday's SmackDown determined The Usos' next challengers.

The Viking Raiders are next in line for a shot at the SmackDown Tag Team titles.

Erik & Ivar became the number one contenders to The Usos' titles by winning a fatal four-way match on tonight's SmackDown. Los Lotharios, Cesaro & Mansoor, and Jinder Mahal & Shanky were the other teams in the match.

Erik pinned Humberto after The Viking Raiders gave him The Viking Experience.

The Usos were on commentary for the number one contender's match. After The Viking Raiders won, The Usos got on the microphone and taunted them. They said the Vikings would raid, pillage, and steal throughout history, but they never came to Samoa. 

WWE hasn't announced when The Viking Raiders will be getting their title shot. It was said that the title match will happen at some point in the future.

The Usos have been SmackDown Tag Team Champions since winning the titles from Rey & Dominik Mysterio at Money in the Bank last July.

In the main event of last week's SmackDown, The Usos retained their titles in a street fight against New Day's Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston. The Usos also retained against Woods & Kingston at WWE's Day 1 pay-per-view earlier this month.
