Backstage News after Usos Unify Tag Titles!

The Usos unifed the Tag teams titles last week on Smackdown. Reports have surfaced about the build up to the match.

According to Dave Meltzer the call to actually have a title change happen was made late. WWE had been promoting RK-Bro (Matt Riddle and Randy Orton) vs. the Usos since the previous episode of “SmackDown,” but the only thing set in stone was the post-match beatdown from the Bloodline. In terms of who was actually going to walk away with both sets of titles, WWE apparently went back and forth on it, with Vince McMahon himself making the final call. The WWE Chairman felt that because the match had been so heavily promoted, it made sense to commit to a winner

It was rumoured for a while that the titles would be unifed at Wrestlemania Backlash but WWE would change the direction at last minute. WWE is currently running storyline injuries to both Riddle and Orton following the post-match attack by the Bloodline. Could a rematch be on the cards down the line?
