The bizarre team of Gold and Stardust will try to make the stars align when they challenge WWE Tag Team Champions Jimmy & Jey Uso at Night of Champions. Gold & Stardust defeated the high-flying champions in a non-title match, as well as won a follow-up title bout by count-out, in recent weeks.
Since their latest title opportunity, however, the brothers in gold and black have displayed a new level of aggression — an attitude change that’s brought along with it tough times for the defending titleholders. After accusing Jey Uso of faking an injury to prompt the count-out decision and protect the WWE Tag Team Titles, Gold & Stardust unleashed consecutive, targeted attacks over a fortnight. The menacing campaign hobbled Jey’s left knee, leaving it unclear what condition he will be in come Night of Champions on Sept. 21.
Will Gold & Stardust’s newfound hostility, combined with Jey’s knee injury, result in the crowning of new WWE Tag Team Champions and, in turn, end Gold & Stardust’s quest for the “cosmic key”? Or will The Usos, amid one of the most dominant WWE Tag Team Championship reigns in modern history, keep hold of the tandem titles? Find out when Night of Champions airs live on WWE Network on Sunday, Sept. 21, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
