This week’s episode of SmackDown aired live from the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It was the first episode of SmackDown following WWE Hell in a Cell 2017 this past Sunday. Here are 3 winners and losers from this week’s SmackDown:
5Gable & Benjamin (Winners)
Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable became the #1 contenders for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships tonight after winning a Fatal 4-Way match against Breezango, Hype Bros and The Ascension. Gable and Benjamin will now go on to face The Usos for the titles in the near future.
The crowd was heavily behind Breezango in this match, but still gave a great reaction when Gable and Benjamin won the match. Gable and Benjamin have been an afterthought on SmackDown since they became a team, but now they are finally getting their shot. Both Benjamin and Gable are ridiculously talented in-ring performers and will no doubt have an awesome match with The Usos.
