5 potential opponents for The Usos after their win at Extreme Rules
The Bloodline continues dripping in gold after Extreme Rules, with The Usos retaining their SmackDown Tag Team Championship. Universal Champion Roman Reigns also retained the title against Demon-Finn Balor, with some help from a top rope malfunction.
Street Profits put up a valiant effort to become the new tag team champions and came mighty close at times, only to fall short.

In the end, a double superkick and a double Uso Splash on Montez Ford were enough for the champions. The Usos retained their championship as they continue to rule the tag-team roster of the blue brand.
Having said this, there could be new challengers for The Usos following WWE Draft. Some tag teams from RAW can move to SmackDown while more opponents might rise to the challenge from the blue-brand itself.
In this article, we look at five opponents for The Usos after their win at Extreme Rules.
#5 Alpha Acadamey vs. The Usos
— WWE (@WWE) August 21, 2021
On the last episode of SmackDown before Extreme Rules, The Alpha Academy confronted The Usos as The Bloodline walked out to the ring.
Otis and Chad Gable will be looking to put their names in the hat to challenge the SmackDown Tag Team Champions. If this rivalry does start to shape up, the exciting aspect would be to see Otis and Chad turn babyface for the contest.
The Usos are one of the biggest heels on the SmackDown roster, and if the Alpha Academy turns babyface, the contest will create a lot more intrigue. The brut strength of Otis will undoubtedly be a lot for Jimmy and Jey to handle.
#4 The Viking Raiders vs. The Usos
The Viking Raiders could be in one hell of a contest if they lock horns with The Usos. Erik and Ivar are one of the most dominating tag teams on Monday Night RAW.
Having won a Battle Royal on the June 7 episode to compete for the RAW Tag Team Championship, they fell short against then-champions AJ Styles and Omos. The loss did not deter their confidence as they fought hard in every match they were put in.
If they move to SmackDown under the WWE Draft, the former RAW Tag Team Champions can definitely challenge The Usos.
#3 AJ Styles and Omos
At Extreme Rules, AJ Styles and Omos teamed up with Bobby Lashley and took on The New Day in a six-man tag team match. WWE champion Big E was successful in pinning the All-Mighty, giving his team the victory.
Off late, AJ Styles and Omos haven’t had much momentum against RAW Tag Team Champions RK-Bro. This could prompt them to look at new avenues like SmackDown and challenge the SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
The contest will pin one of the biggest heel teams from RAW vs. one of the biggest heel teams from SmackDown, which will surely be worth the watch.
#2 The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods) vs. The Usos
The New Day and The Usos have had their share of battles. They were recently part of a six-man tag team match with The Bloodline vs. New Day on RAW. Roman Reigns picked up the win after he speared Xavier Woods.
With the WWE draft approaching, it would be an exciting proposition if The New Day were drafted to SmackDown and challenged The Usos for the titles. Kingston and Woods most certainly want gold around their waists again, and what better way than to win it from The Usos.
#1 Street Profits vs. The Usos (Rematch)
— WWE (@WWE) September 27, 2021
The rivalry between Usos and Street Profits seems all over if the latter are not drafted to RAW. Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford will most certainly be looking to avenge their loss at Extreme Rules with any opportunity they get to rechallenge the SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
Street Profits are desperate to win gold again, and a match between these teams cannot be ruled out in the near future.
