Tonight on Smackdown Live The Bar was successful in defeating The Usos. After the match, an unsuspected challenger would come out and challenge the Smackdown Live Tag Team Champions to a title match at the Royal Rumble.
After The Bar was successful The Miz would make his way down to the ring. The Miz would get in the ring with both Sheamus and Cesaro and challenge them to a title match at the Royal Rumble. The Miz would state that he and his tag team partner Shane McMahon want a shot at the Tag Team Titles. The Bar said they would have to talk it over and as they said that Sheamus leveled Miz with a Brouge Kick and then accepted the match.
Backstage Shane met up with Miz and asked him why he did that. Miz said that Shane told him to take what he wanted, to be more confident and challenge the competition. With a little bit of reluctance, Shane would eventually agree to the match and make it official for the Royal Rumble.
