The Usos are the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions, but as of now, they don’t have any plans in place for WrestleMania. Everything changed on tonight’s SmackDown as they opened up Uso’s Penitentiary to reveal their plans for WrestleMania 38. They talked about holding the titles for almost a year and Reigns holding the title for almost two years, then mentioned that there were no plans for The Usos at WrestleMania. Then, Rick Boogs and Shinsuke Nakamura came out to address The Usos and declare themselves the next SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
Boogs was limping and had a wrap around his leg and knee, then the Usos called him peg leg Pete. Jimmy then stated that if Boogs could beat Jey in a one-on-one match, they could have a match for the Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania.
They had a referee there and started the game, but then Jey went right after the injured leg, a leg they injured last week. Afterwards, Boogs removed the wrap around his leg and revealed he was uninjured, and it looks like they tricked them into giving them a title shot.
Boogs locked in a Bear Hug, then lifted Jey off the floor before slamming him down, then he lifted him up again and delivered a military press with 10 reps before dropping him.
Nakamura held Jimmy but after a kick, Boogs punched Jimmy and knocked him out of Shinsuke. Jey tried to capitalize but Boogs caught the superkick and then lifted him for a Boogs Cruise, and that sealed the deal, giving the team the win and their shot at the Tag Team Titles.
Unfortunately, Jimmy hit Boogs in the back with his guitar, smashing and breaking it in the process. Boogs held his arm and Shinsuke came in to help his partner, so hopefully he can recover before WrestleMania.
There are still plenty of matches to be announced for WrestleMania, but for now, here is the current WrestleMania 38 card.
