The Usos, SAnitY, The Bar and The New Day will face off over the next three weeks in an attempt to get a shot at the Bludgeon Brothers. This will be the first angle for The Bar in months.

The first match in the tournament takes place this week on Smackdown Live when the New Day takes on SAnitY. Considering how the Bludgeon Brothers have run through the likes of New Day and the Usos, it’s likely we’ll see the Bar get a chance to take down Rowan and Harper.
