The one convention that prevents tag team matches from erupting into utter bedlam — the requirement to tag one’s partner in or out of action — will not apply at Extreme Rules when Jimmy & Jey Uso face Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows in a rare Tag Team Tornado Match.
Per the rules of the match, all four Superstars will be allowed to compete in the ring at the same time, with the first fall deciding the victors. Given the promise of carnage, the bout is a fitting way to settle the increasingly volatile rivalry between the two teams.
Since the moment of their shocking arrival to WWE, Anderson & Gallows have targeted The Usos and — with or without the endorsement of their Club cohort, AJ Styles — Jimmy & Jey’s cousin, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns. As Styles and Reigns look ahead to their lawless Extreme Rules Match for the title, their respective squads now have their own brawl on the horizon.
Will The Usos’ innate sense of teamwork allow them to overcome Anderson & Gallows in the fast and furious environment of a Tag Team Tornado Match? Or will the ruthless newcomers punish the 2015 Slammy Tag Team of the Year in this cyclonic clash? Not to be forgotten is the affect this bout potentially will have on Reigns vs. Styles; how might the physical toll endured during the Tornado Match alter either team’s plan to keep a close eye on the championship main event?
