Looks like they’re next. Titles are one of the easiest things to present in all of wrestling. In theory, almost everyone wants to be a champion because it means money, fame, prestige and more. That is the kind of thing that any fan is going to understand, making title matches a pretty easy concept. Now we might know who is coming after some new champions next.
Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio won the SmackDown Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania Backlash, becoming the first father and son duo to win the championships. Rey was a guest on this week’s edition of the After The Bell podcast and mentioned that former champion Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode should receive an immediate rematch for the titles. Otis and Dolph Ziggler were also mentioned as future challengers, as the teams split four matches earlier this year. Dominik defeated Roode on the SmackDown after WrestleMania Backlash, suggesting that their feud would be continuing.
There is history with both of them. Check out the champs against both teams, plus their comments after winning the titles:
Opinion: These would be the logical ways to go for the new champs as the SmackDown tag team division is not the deepest. That being said, as logical as these matches are, it would seem more likely to have the Usos up next for the champs, as it is hard to imagine them being back together and not going for the titles. Either way, the matches should be good, and it is nice to see some challengers available.
Who do you expect for the next challengers? How long will the Mysterios hold the titles? Let us know in the comments below.
