The Usos vs. The New Day vs. Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin vs. Rusev and Aiden English, Tag Team Championship Match, WWE Clash of Champions 2017 winner, video highlights and analysis
Jey Uso, Chad Gable, Aiden English and Kofi Kingston kicked off the action and took turns rolling each other up. A chaotic brawl then broke out, resulting in Kingston, who was representing New Day along with Big E, hitting a huge suicide dive.
The New Day had momentary control of the match until Rusev, the most popular performer in the match by far, nailed hometown hero Kingston with a superkick. The match then calmed down with English and Benjamin grabbing rest holds. The flow of this match was odd, to say the least.
The Usos and The New Day started to do most of the selling as the match hit the doldrums, to set up two big hot tags. A momentary clash between Gable and English allowed Kingston and Jey Uso to tag with their partners. The Usos took control of the match with a series of superkicks, but Gable locked Jey Uso in a Texas Cloverleaf while Benjamin secured the ring.
However, English pulled Benjamin outside while Big E broke up the submission. Rusev then became the star of the match with a series of hope spots: he first locked Gable in the Accolade before hitting Machka Kicks on Gable and Big E for near falls. He then had Big E in the Accolade before Chad Gable broke it up with a Deadlift German Suplex.
Gable handed out a series of Suplexes until the Usos hit him with the superkick/splash combo for the pin.
Result: The Usos def. The New Day, Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin and Aiden English & Rusev
