Everything needs a prelude. We’re rapidly closing in on “Hell in a Cell 2017” and that means the final touches are being made to the card. In this case that means the Kickoff Show match being announced as well, which is often the case on the last show before a pay per view takes place.

As announced on this week’s episode of “Smackdown Live”, Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin will team up to face the Hype Bros on this Sunday’s Kickoff Show. The Hype Bros have been having issues as of late while Gable and Benjamin haven’t been teaming together all that long yet.

This was also set up backstage a few weeks ago.

Are The Hype Bros on the same page?: SmackDown LIVE Fallout, Sept. 26, 2017

Opinion: This is as good as anything else and it’s not like the four of them have anything better to do. I can’t imagine the Hype Bros beat the new team, meaning their split is likely imminent. It should be fine as a seven or eight minute match and that’s all that it really needs to be.

Who do you think wins this match? Will the winners be in line for a Tag Team Title shot? Let us know in the comments below.
