WWE previously announced a Fatal 4 Way to determine the new #1 contenders for Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos for tonight’s SmackDown, featuring Alpha Academy, Los Lotharios, The New Day and The Street Profits.
In an update, PWINsider reports that there has been a pitch to change the match, replacing Alpha Academy and Los Lotharios with Imperium’s Giovanni Vinci and Ludwig Kaiser, and two members of The Brawling Brutes, likely Butch and Ridge Holland.
There is no confirmation of the change at the time of writing, but WWE officials are leaning toward making the change.
In connection with this, it was previously reported how Bayley of Damage CTRL and new WWE Women’s Tag Team champions Dakota Kai and IYO SKY were booked for tonight’s show, but not yet announced by WWE. It is now known that Bayley will wrestle a match tonight.
This would be only her second singles TV competition since returning to SummerSlam in late July. Her first was a win over Aliyah on August 22 RAW. Bayley is currently arguing with RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair on Monday night.
The only other item announced by WWE for tonight’s SmackDown at the time of writing is Logan Paul’s return to TV.
