The two tag teams had a backstage confrontation on RAW where The Usos along with Sami Zayn & Solo Sikoa punked them out. Elias asked them to put their money where their mouth is and they replied anytime. Riddle said they wanted a shot at the titles and they agreed to that as well.

The title match for next week became official as the commentators announced it during Jey Uso’s match against Kevin Owens. Jey lost this match in the end.
Elias & Riddle became a tag team only a few weeks back as they both share love for playing musical instruments. Elias is famous for his guitar and Matt is a bong enthusiast (pun intended).
Jimmy and Jey Uso are the most dominant force in the whole tag team division. A few weeks back, they broke the record of The New Day as the longest reigning tag team champions in WWE history. They have been the SmackDown tag team champions for over 400 days now.
Although Riddle and Elias have secured a shot at Usos’ titles out of the blue, it’s highly unlikely they will win them.
The Usos are members of The Bloodline headed by the Undisputed WWE Universal champion, Roman Reigns. The Bloodline recently won their WarGames match on Saturday against The Brawling Brutes, Drew McIntyre and Kevin Owens. At the event, The Bloodline finally accepted Sami Zayn after having doubts on his loyalty for months.

Sami saved his team from a devastating loss at Survivor Series. He low blowed his old friend Kevin Owens and presented him to Jey Uso. Jey landed a splash on Owens and pinned him, picking up the win for his team.
The Usos’ challengers next week don’t come close to them in experience and gold. Riddle was a former RAW tag team champion with Randy Orton but Elias is yet to win anything major till date.
