Keep the build going. WWE is back on pay per view this weekend with Money In The Bank. That is the kind of show that presents some unusual challenges to the company, as there are only so many options available to add to the card. With sixteen wrestlers tied up in two matches, WWE can only do so much with the choices they have. Now we know another match they are putting on.

WWE has announced that Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio will defend the SmackDown Tag Team Titles against the Usos on the Money In The Bank Kickoff Show. The Mysterios took the titles from Bobby Roode and Dolph Ziggler on May 16 at WrestleMania Backlash. Since winning the titles, the Mysterios have only defended them twice, with both defenses taking place on the June 4 SmackDown against the Usos.

This could be an interesting one. Check out the previous match, plus both teams in action:

2-on-1 SmackDown Tag Team Championship Handicap Match: SmackDown, May 28, 2021

Rey & Dominik Mysterio vs. The Usos – SmackDown Tag Team Title Match: SmackDown, June 4, 2021

Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode vs. The Street Profits: SmackDown, April 16, 2021

Opinion: This is the kind of match that can make the show feel a little bigger and that is a good thing. The SmackDown Tag Team Titles might not be all that huge but they are still titles, which will be enough to draw in at least a little interest. If nothing else, the Mysterios need to defend the things a bit more frequently as they have not had a title defense in almost a month and a half.
