#1 Contenders Tag Team Tournament Announced on SmackDown

If there’s one thing your old pal Louis Tully loves more than taxes it’s tournaments in professional wrestling. So you can imagine my excitement when tonight on SmackDown it was announced that a tag team tournament would take place to determine the #1 Contenders to Team Hell No‘s Tag Team Championships.

Let’s look at the first round brackets after the jump:

-International Air Strike: Tyson Kidd and Justin Gabriel vs. Zack Ryder and Santino Marella

-Team Rhodes Scholars: Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow defeated The Usos, Friday Night on SmackDown

-The Prime Time Players:Titus O’Neil and Darren Young  vs. Kofi Kingston and R-Truth

-Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara vs. Epico and Primo

It doesn’t take a genius to realize we’re headed towards a Rhodes Scholars/Mysterio & Cara final, which could be outstanding, but I applaud WWE in the recent steps to restore prestige and legitimacy to the tag team division.

Tag Team Names, duos with matching gear, bring on the Tournament!
