It was announced by WWE Smackdown GM Paige over the weekend that there will be a mini-tournament to determine who would challenge The Bludgeon Brothers duo of Harper and Rowan for the gold at SummerSlam on August 19.
Here’s the original announcement from Paige from a cell phone promo she posted on Twitter. Keep your eyes up. If you want. The choice is yours.

On Sunday, Paige specified who the four teams are going to be: The New Day, Sanity, The Usos and The Bar.

One Smackdown team missing from the tournament (if we want to call it that) are Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. It seems like a pretty big omission, but as Anderson put it on Twitter, he’s got other things on his mind.
Listen I have one thing on my mind right now, my abs.

He certainly loves those abs.
As for who wins the tournament, it will probably be New Day since The Usos have already got a shot and it makes sense for it to be a face team.
