The Bloodline standing tall at the end of WWE SmackDown

WWE SmackDown (May 20, 2022) Big 4 news stories: The Undisputed Tag Team Champions crowned, Sasha Banks and Naomi suspended indefinitely

WWE SmackDown from Van Andel Arena was held in Grand Rapids, MI this week. Brand Blue presented the last episode of the venue in 2017, which saw Baron Corbin defeat AJ Styles to retain the United States Championship in the main event.

The stakes were high again in town, this time including the RAW Tag Team Championship. RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle) defended the tag team gold medal against SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos to determine the undisputed tag team champions.

Let’s find out who brought the spoils home, as we take a look at the four biggest news stories from SmackDown this week.

#4 Xavier Woods teases third tag team partner to face Sheamus, Ridge Holland and Butch; The three-way fight reveals a new stable name

In Kofi Kingston’s absence, Xavier Woods was tasked with challenging Butch single-handedly in a singles match. With Ridge Holland & Sheamus at the ringside, the odds were unfavorable for the winner of the 2021 King of the Ring.

Woods managed the victory, but was put on the slope due to his problems. In a behind-the-scenes clip, the New Day member revealed that he has someone on his mind to line up with him and Kofi against The Brawling Brutes.

That’s right, going forward, the trio of Sheamus, Ridge Holland & Butch is known as The Brawling Brutes.

Not only that, but they were also stripped of the Women’s Tag Team Championship, which The Boss & Glow Connection won at WrestleMania 38. It was also spotted by fans, having Banks & Naomi merchandise removed from the organization’s online store.
