WWE: New title match announced for Money in the Bank

Published 4 Comments

Teddy Long made his return to WWE television last night and it was bizarre to say the very least. 

The former general manager of SmackDown came on during the opening segment, when all six competitors of the Money in the Bank ladder match were in the ring, to talk about how SmackDown was becoming live and how he wanted to be the GM again.

It was all very weird and thankfully Stephanie McMahon saved the day by making some matches and dragging Long backstage. In another segment, Long suggested a tag-team title match for Money in the Bank, which was accepted by McMahon and made official.

That match will see the current reigning, defending WWE World Tag Team Champions, The New Day, take on Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady, and The Vaudevillains in a fatal four-way match.

You can check out a video of the segment here, where Stephanie takes credit for coming up with the match after kicking Long out.

Interestingly, this isn't the first time that Theodore Long has come up with a fatal four-way tag team match.

The very same thing happened in 2005, when Long was General Manager of SmackDown, as the reigning WWE tag team champions were forced to defend their belts against three other teams at the same time.

That match saw Rey Mysterio and Rob van Dam - the Champions in question - had to defend their belts against The Basham Brothers, Eddie Guerrero & Booker T as well as Mark Jindrak & Luther Reigns.

Wow, that match is full of nostalgia. Plus, why the hell did Rey Mysterio have a hand-held camera? Who knew that Rey was the original Tyler Breeze! 

Anyway, in that match, only one member from two of the tag teams were allowed in the ring at any one team, meaning that two of the teams had no members in the ring at one time. It was won by The Basham Brothers and you can watch it here.

If history were to repeat itself, would that mean that Anderson and Gallows will walk away from Money in the Bank with the titles? Seeing as they're the big heel tag team in this situation, they would be the Basham's of this match. It's something interesting to think about.
