During tonight’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live, a brand new match was announced for the upcoming WWE Royal Rumble PPV later this month.
It has been made official that The Bar (Sheamus & Cesaro) will defend their SmackDown Tag Team Championships against none other than The Miz and Shane McMahon at the Royal Rumble event.
The Bar faced The Usos on SmackDown tonight, with The Usos having the chance to earn a title shot with a victory, only to be defeated after a distraction from Mandy Rose.
This led to The Miz coming to the ring and challenging The Bar for a title shot, which they happily agreed to after knocking him out. Miz then met up with Shane McMahon backstage and he agreed to compete for the titles, making it official.
