The Usos have won the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions. The newly crowned champions beat Shane McMahon and The Miz at the WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. This comes during the same week that Jimmy was arrested.

The unlikely pairing has earned their first set of WWE gold as a tag team once they beat The Bar (Sheamus & Cesaro) at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event in Phoenix, Arizona at Chase Field on the WWE Network.
The Usos (Jey Uso and Jimmy Uso) earned this title opportunity on the episode of SmackDown Live two nights after the Royal Rumble PPV when they defeated The Bar, The New Day (represented by Big E and Kofi Kingston), and Heavy Machinery (Otis Dozovic and Tucker Knight) in a four-corners tag team elimination match.
Time will tell whether WWE continues this feud or goes into a different direction heading into Fastlane pay-per-view event next month. WWE could book the rematch on an episode of SmackDown Live.
