Who will challenge The Bar at Royal Rumble?

Just as we got last night on Monday Night RAW, tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live, the first one that is not taped since before Christmas, gave us some more news regarding the Royal Rumble.

Tonight, The Usos got a shot at earning a SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match at the event in less than three weeks on January 27th, taking on the titleholders, The Bar (keep up with all of SmackDown Live with Mitchell’s Live Report). As we’ve seen from these four in the past, Sheamus, Cesaro and The Usos once again gave us another classic encounter with both teams seemingly having multiple chances to put the match away.

Unfortunately for The Usos, it was a distraction that’s been plaguing Jimmy Uso in the form of Mandy Rose that would lead to a victory for the champions, meaning Jimmy and Jey won’t be getting their chance. However after the match, The Miz would come down to issue a challenge, seeking a shot at The Bar alongside his partner Shane McMahon at Royal Rumble.

Sheamus would answer with a Brogue Kick before Cesaro accepted, but it still would take some convincing by ‘The A-Lister’ to get Shane to agree. Eventually, he would and the match is now official.
