Last night during the Smackdown Live broadcast, the general manager of the blue brand Daniel Bryan, announced that Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin will have an opportunity for the Smackdown Live Tag team Championship against The Usos, in about 2 of 3 falls in the Royal Rumble event.
In this way Gable and Benjamin get a new opportunity after having been defeated last Tuesday in SmackDown Live, in a fight where Gable and Benjamin won, but the decision was annulled by a second referee after finding out that the account had been obtained on Jimmy Uso, who was not the legal man at the time of the count. This led to the resumption of combat where The Usos won and retained the championships.
It should be remembered that the Royal Rumble event will be held on January 28 at the Wells Fargo Center, located in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
