SmackDown Live had some impressive matches and the show was enjoyable this week. Let's find out three things WWE made clear on the Blue Brand.
#3 The Revival will challenge The New Day at Clash of Champions
While the challengers for the RAW Tag Team Titles were confirmed on the Red Brand this week, the next challengers for the Tag Titles could be announced soon. The Revival, who have been appearing on SmackDown Live through Wild Card Rule, could chase the SmackDown Tag Team Titles.
The New Day member, Big E, fought Randy Orton on SmackDown Live this week. It was a great match as the powerhouse of New Day showed his proficiency in the ring. The Revival interfered the match and they helped Orton to defeat Big E.
Orton formed a new alliance with The Revival following SummerSlam. Moreover, Dash Wilder and Scott Dawkins crossed paths with the New Day members a couple of times in the past few weeks and we saw a similar scenario on the Blue Brand this week. Since Orton will take on Kingston at Clash of Champions, it is clear that The Revival will fight Xavier Woods and Big E.
