The SmackDown Live tag team division is getting very stacked, and current division champions The Usos are leading the way.
The Usos are multiple time tag team champions who are currently in the midst of a feud with The New Day (Big E, Xavier Woods, and Kofi Kingston) on Tuesday nights. Recently, however, a new team has entered into the mix. Former WWE Tag Team Champion Shelton Benjamin has returned to align himself with former American Alpha member Chad Gable. Once they find themselves into the No. 1-contenders spot they could prove to be a force to be reckoned with in the division.
Recently, The Usos joined former WWE Tag Team Champions Edge and Christian's podcast, E&C's Pod Of Awesomeness, to talk about their current WWE run as SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions. During the interview, The Usos were asked about the possibility of facing off against Benjamin and Gable down the line, something the twins say they're pretty excited for.
The Usos then shared an interesting story about an incident they had at the gym with Benjamin and his former tag team partner Charlie Hass, who dubbed themselves "The World's Greatest Tag Team" back in the day (quotes via Wrestling Inc.):
"Man, me personally, it'll be interesting with this brand new tag team that just got here last week, Shelton and Gable.
"I said them because I ain't never been in the ring with Shelton and our first practice, our first, like, 'hey, you guys are wrestling - we're getting you in the gym right now' was Shelton and Charlie Haas, [they] dragged me and my brother to a 24 Hour Fitness, the first day, in Houston, Texas, before a contract, before even learning how to bump and they killed us in the gym, like, murdered us like mad men!
"And they did it on purpose to where you couldn't even move. I was like, 'holy hell!' But I'll never forget that and the second day, I was scared to go in the gym. It was the first time of being legit scared to go into a gym, man!"
Uce added, "the first time we ever locked up with Charlie Haas it was like a soft lockup. He was like, 'do it again.'
"We went to lock up again [and] 'boom', snot came out our nose, 'this is how you lock up.' I was like, 'what the? I don't think I want to do this.'
"Man, he gave me one of the hardest armdrags. I set in for an armdrag and he snapped me so fast, man.' I was like, 'okay.' Now, I knew what I was getting into."
