What's the story?

Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable warned the current SmackDown tag team champions, The Usos, that they were going to come for the championship after they won the Fatal 4-way No. 1 contenders match on Smackdown Live.

Shelton warned The Usos that if they were in the 'Usos Penitentiary', it was The Usos who were locked in there with Gable and Benjamin, rather than the other way around.

In case you didn't know...

After Jason Jordan left Smackdown Live, following the announcement that he was Kurt Angle's son, Chad Gable was left in the lurch without a partner. When Shelton Benjamin debuted on Smackdown the two of them got together as a Tag Team.

On Smackdown Live, Gable and Benjamin took part in the fatal four-way on Smackdown Live, to become the No. 1 Contenders for the WWE Smackdown Tag TEam Championships.

The heart of the matter

After they won their match for the right to face the Usos, Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable issued a warning to the Usos. Gable said that he had learnt that opportunities were few and far between, so they knew that they needed to seize it when it came their way.

Benjamin said that they were looking to become Champions and that the Usos better watch out for them.

"Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable are here for a reason. We said that day one, we are here to be champions. Usos you call this the Usos Penitentiary? Guess what boys, we are not locked in here with you, you are locked in here with us."

What's next?

Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable are the new No. 1 contenders for the WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championships and will look to face the Usos in the coming weeks before Survivor Series.


Author's take

Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable were always meant to challenge for the Tag Team Championships at one point or another. Shelton Benjamin is one of the last big stars from the Ruthless Aggression Era, still present in WWE.

Chad Gable is a young star who is meant for big things in WWE and has a long and promising career ahead of him. The match between them and the Usos will be amazing no doubt, though it is unlikely that they will immediately win the Championships, as the Usos are in the best form they have been in some time.
