PB 2016 Tag Team Championship Tournament Final

A new era has arrived in WWE, and nowhere is that more evident than the WWE Tag Team Championship No. 1 Contenders’ Tournament Final, to take place May 1 at WWE Payback.

In an eight-team bracket replete with tandems that have greater experience under the bright lights of WWE, two teams that are brand new to the scene — Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady and The Vaudevillains — made it all the way to the final.

To vie for the prestigious opportunity of challenging WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day, The Realest Guys in the Room, Amore & Cassady, upended The Ascension in round one and survived a fight with new nemeses The Dudley Boyz in round two.

Gentlemen brawlers Simon Gotch & Aiden English, meanwhile, advanced to the tournament final by trumping Goldust & Fandango and the dinged-up Usos in the quarter- and semifinals, respectively.

Each team now stands just one more tournament victory away from taking on the WWE Tag Team Champions. Will the trash-talking, thunder-and-lightning pair of Cassady & Amore take one step closer to championship glory at WWE Payback? Or will The Vaudevillains’ meticulous and old-school offense spell success?
