The Usos have become the WWE Undisputed Tag Team Champions after defeating RK-Bro on Friday Night SmackDown.
In the words of Michael Cole as SmackDown went off the air, “The Bloodline holds all the gold.”
After weeks of tension between the two teams, RK-Bro and The Usos finally met in the ring on the May 20th episode of SmackDown. The Bloodline opened the show in confident mood, with Paul Heyman, microphone in hand telling the world that The Usos would cement their status as the best tag team in history with victory.
However, RK-Bro were equally confident in a backstage segment, believing that they had enough to dethrone the SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
In the ring, RK-Bro gained the upper hand early on, backed by a raucous crowd, but their momentum was halted by an injury to Riddle. With doctors tending to the star, the show went to a commercial break, but when back with the action, Riddle was fighting bravely on. It was noted that he had suffered a bruised hip.
The Original Bro eventually made the hottest of hot tags to Randy Orton who laid waste to everyone and everything he could lay his hands on. However, with Riddle back in the action and on the top rope appearing to be preparing for an RKO, Roman Reigns appeared and grabbed Jey Uso’s feet sending Riddle to the mat. The referee was already distracted as Paul Heyman tried to get in the ring after leaving the commentary table.
Here comes #TheViper!!!

After the splash from the top rope, The Usos scored the one-two-three. But the action wasn’t done there. Determined to get revenge for the knee to his face last week, Reigns demolished Riddle, beating him from pillar to post as his cousins took out Orton with the ring steps.
To add an exclamation point, Jey Uso hit a splash from the top rope through the announce table on Riddle. This left The Bloodline standing united, and standing tall atop WWE.
