The last time Paige announced a Smackdown Live Tag Team Tournament, the New Day advanced to SummerSlam, where they would defeat the Bludgeon Brothers via DQ.
New Day took out SAnitY and The Bar on their way to their title bout, and would eventually win the titles on the Smackdown Live after SummerSlam, where Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods defeated the Bludgeon Brothers in a No Disqualification match.

With new champions, and Erick Rowan out with an injury, the New Day are looking for new contenders, and the Smackdown General Manager has a plan. Paige announced on Twitter that a new tournament will begin to decide the challengers for the New Day.
There will be two Triple Threat tag team bouts, with the winners of those two matches facing off in the finals to determine the #1 Contenders to the Smackdown Live Tag Team Titles. The first matchup, which will take place this Tuesday, will feature The Club vs The Bar vs The Colons.
