LAS VEGAS – The Usos have once again proven that there is no team on the SmackDown stage as synchronized as they are, defeating father-son pair Rey and Dominik Mysterio to retain tag team titles from SmackDown to SummerSlam.
The Mysterios struggled in the weeks following the loss of the titles to Jimmy and Jey at WWE Money in the Bank on July 18. Rey inadvertently cost Dominik a singles match last week, and Dom unwittingly did the same to his father on Friday at SmackDown. They were hoping to get back on the same page at SummerSlam, but the Usos stood in their way.
Few teams can boast the same level of success as The Usos, and that dominance was fully displayed, as Jimmy and Jey isolated upstart Dominik while his legendary father watched in concern and frustration around the corner.
Jey took too long to put Dominik away, however, dragging a mocking version of Eddie Guerrero’s patented Three Amigos suplexes, giving Dominik an opening to counter and score his father.
Rey looked set to win the Tag Championship when he lined up for a Frog Splash, but Jimmy blocked the iconic move and the twins sandwiched Rey with superkicks. Jey followed up with a splash to retain the SmackDown Tag titles and prove that the Usos are simply untouchable.
