WWE has actually gone with a makeover for Friday night’s episode of “SmackDown.” Inside the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, fans will get to see a big fatal 4-way tag team match, and this is where things are changing.
Initially, the Big Tag Team match was set to feature The Street Profits, The New Day, Alpha Academy and Los Lotharios. PWInsider reported that WWE was looking to replace Imperium and The Brawling Brutes for Alpha Academy and Los Lotharios. That change has been made, but another major change has been made in the match.
WWE Announces Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Match Will now feature Imperium (Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci), The Brawling Brutes (Butch and Ridge Holland), The New Day and Hit Row. Hence, what was not reported earlier was the possibility of a hit row instead of street profit, which has clearly come to the fore.
The New Day is the only team originally scheduled for a tag match. The initial incarnation of the match actually took place on the September 5 episode of “Raw”. However, this was interrupted by Braun Strowman, who made his dramatic return to WWE by ousting everyone involved in the match.
This is an important tag team match as the winners will get a shot at The Usos for their WWE Undisputed Tag Team Championship. The Usos have held the WWE “SmackDown” Tag Team Championships for over 400 days. They have “raw” gold for more than 100 days.
WWE is also promoting the return of Logan Paul for Friday night’s “SmackDown.”
