The first match of the Smackdown tag team tournament took place at this week’s SmackDown. The New Day took on Sanity in a great match. However, The New Day managed to defeat Sanity, after Xavier Woods scored the pin for his team.
This means that the New Day has advanced to the number one contender’s match for a shot at the titles at Summerslam. The trio will face the winner of the match between the Bar and the Usos which takes place next week on Smackdown.
Ultimately, the winner of this tournament will face the Bludgeon Brothers at Summerslam for the titles.
