WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos def. The Wyatt Family

The buzzards may have been circling Jimmy & Jey Uso’s trail these last few weeks, but at Money in the Bank, the WWE Tag Team Champions prevailed over Luke Harper & Erick Rowan to retain their illustrious title.

Wearing in-ring gear the color of money, The Usos were precisely that. Combating the strength and beat-‘em-up style of Harper & Rown with their signature brand of high-flying finesse, Jimmy & Jey kept the monsters at bay with numerous well-timed kicks and high-risk maneuvers. Yet when Jey Uso’s top-rope attempt was thwarted, the tag champion was sent crashing to ringside by Luke Harper, allowing the bruising Wyatt Family members to slow down the pace of the bout and keep Jey isolated from his brother in the corner.

When a tag was finally made, a fresh Jimmy Uso took the fight to Harper, and nailed both big men with Samoan drops. But the challengers roared back and a thundering Harper powerbomb to Jimmy almost spelled the end of a memorable WWE Tag Title reign.

The Wyatts were far from done, and Harper went flying through the ropes twice, hitting both Usos on the outside before dragging Jimmy back into the ring. With both Harper & Rowan focused on Jimmy, the end seemed near, until Jey reemerged and evened the odds.

When the action returned to the ring, Rowan climbed to the top rope, looking to make a huge statement. But The Usos countered with a double superplex that brought the capacity TD Garden crowd to its feet and sent the giant crashing to the canvas. The brothers followed up with consecutive Splashes, and Jey covered Rowan for the three-count to retain the WWE Tag Team Title.

Despite continued warnings from The Wyatt Family members that their “time was up,” at Money in the Bank, The Usos ensured that their championship reign remains in good standing.

Thousands of inspiring athletes, along with their families and supporters, flocked to New Jersey this week for the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games. They were cheered on by another group of athletes:WWE’s Superstars and Divas.

Throughout the weeklong competition celebrating unity and inclusion through sport, Superstars and Divas took part in the celebration, rooting on athletes and presenting the winners with medals. WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos, Darren Young, Titus O’Neil, Alicia Fox, The Funkadactyls and WWE Hall of Famers Bob Backlund and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat were among the team of Superstars that took part in the festivities.

“It’s a blessing,” Jey Uso said of the opportunity to be a part of the Special Olympics movement.

“We love to give back, that’s why we’re here,” Jimmy said, after he and his brother presented medals to the winners of the bocce event.

Perhaps the best part of the week for the Superstars and Divas was getting to meet the athletes and their supporters up close and personal during autograph signings at Olympic Town, a carnival set up for Special Olympics attendees at The College of New Jersey. Long lines snaked around Olympic Town as everyone tried to get a better look at the Superstars while they waited their turn.

Once they got to the front of the line, it was all smiles as the Superstars chatted with the athletes, sharing hugs, comparing muscles, posing for pictures and signing autographs. The Usos even let everyone who waited in line pose with their prized WWE Tag Team Championships.

Many of the athletes are huge WWE fans and have encyclopedic knowledge of sports-entertainment’s history and talked with the Superstars about various moments from their careers. For the Superstars, the Special Olympics gave them a chance to take a step back and see how what they do inspires people.

“With the job, sometimes we complain about the long hours and the early flights,” Jey explained. “Today brought us back down to earth.”

“It makes us proud that they love what we do so much,” Jimmy said.

Even though the sun was beating down on New Jersey throughout the week, with the temperature reaching higher than 90 degrees, the Superstars were extra energetic throughout the day, drawing inspiration from the athletes they met. The experience was unlike any other, for both the Superstars and the athletes.

“This was, hands down, the best autograph signing we’ve ever had,” Jimmy declared without hesitation.

“It’s No. 1,” Jey said when asked where Special Olympics ranked among the events he gets to take part in as a WWE Superstar.

WWE is a Founding Partner of the Special Olympics 2014 USA Games, which run through Friday. WWE produced the Opening Ceremonies, along with daily recaps of each day’s competitions and events, in addition to the Superstars’ roles.

It ain’t looking good for The Usos going into Money in the Bank: Not only have the Tag Team Champions been shellacked at every turn by their No. 1 contenders, The Wyatts, but Jimmy Uso fell to the depraved Luke Harper in singles action just six days before the brothers put their gold up for grabs. Harper strolled to the ring to the tune of a hurdy-gurdy reel of “He’s Got the Whole World In His Hands” and immediately dismantled his opponent, taking advantage of a distraction when Jey Uso pounced on Erick Rowan outside the ring to deck Jimmy with a discus clothesline for the win.

Unfortunately for the Wyatts, Jey wasn’t done with the Family by a long shot, challenging Rowan to an impromptu match that was immediately accepted and followed up with a soaring splash over the ropes.

Erick Rowan wanted to get nuts, and Jey Uso got nuts: Moments after Luke Harper flattened Jimmy Uso, a rowdy Jey made good on his impulsive challenge to the sheep-faced behemoth by notching an impressive win over Bray Wyatt’s resident brute. Rowan held the early advantage, tossing the nimbler Uso across the ring like a bag of flour and bouncing him off the ropes. But Jey got a few kicks in (literally) with a leaping boot to Rowan’s head and, while Jimmy neutralized Harper, followed up with a top-rope splash for the win … though a post-match pounding to the champions by both Wyatts, and yet another apocalyptic sermon from Bray Wyatt himself, proved the victory to be hollow at best.

With all six Superstars set to compete at WWE Money in the Bank, in pay-per-view matches with major championship implications, the explosive alliance of United States Champion Sheamus & WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos went head-to-head with the always-dangerous Wyatt Family.

But in the height of the action, the Samoan warriors failed to see Bray Wyatt tag himself into the contest. Though the reigning titleholders executed an impressive aerial offensive , The Eater of World’s seized the momentum and defeated Jimmy with Sister Abigail.

“The Man of 1,000 Truths” turned Sheamus’ pearly white flesh a gruesome shade of black and blue with headbutts and elbows. Even though the Dublin brawler responded appropriately and The Usos joined the fray as backup for the Irishman, Wyatt impressively went shot-for-shot with the reigning U.S. Champion. By the time Sheamus did find his footing, the Wyatts had seen enough and pounced on the Celt right as he was setting up for the Brogue Kick. The interference cut the match off with a DQ and instigated a massive brawl between Sheamus, The Usos and all three Wyatts at ringside that ended with Irish (and Samoan) eyes smiling, and the Wyatts stewing for revenge.
