WWE SmackDown: 3 questions from the episode before Clash of Champions (September 10, 2019)
#2 Why was there no build-up for the Tag Team Championship?
The SmackDown Tag Team Championships will be defended at WWE Clash of Champions as The New Day will defend the titles against The Revival. Currently, it seems like the biggest tag team clash on the main roster possible without The Usos actively performing, and the match should live up to the hype.
At a time when RAW is still busy throwing the championship from one thrown-together tag team to another, SmackDown should value its title and tag teams more.
Instead, there was no build for the tag titles once again, and The Revival was nowhere to be seen on this episode of the blue brand. Yes, we understand that the New Day is kayfabe injured after the attacks by The Revival and Randy Orton, but WWE should have done something or the other to keep the rivalry in the fans’ minds. Even a match between The Revival and Heavy Machinery would have done a lot of good heading into Sunday, but the absence of the champions and the challengers makes one wonder how important the tag teams are to the company at the moment. It remains to be seen how well the two teams fare in the match itself after their absence from television this week.Published 12 Sep 2019, 18:57 IST
