The Usos are now the longest reigning Tag Team Champions in WWE History

On the November 11th episode of SmackDown, Jimmy and Jey Uso defeated Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston of The New Day, officially breaking their record to become the longest-reigned tag team champions in WWE's history. 

The show kicked off with an emotionally charged exchange between the two teams, with Woods and Kingston reminding everyone of the obstacles they and Big E had overcome to become the decorated tag team they are today.  Big E, who is still currently out recovering from a broken neck sustained earlier this year, was missed and the crowd expressed their support when he was mentioned during this promo. 

Nevertheless, the exciting main event match later in the evening was nothing short of a masterpiece.  The premium live event-worthy match featured countless near-falls and 2.9 countless that kept the crowd on the edge of their seats.  

A breathtaking top rope leg drop from Woods seemed sure to win The New Day the match, but Jimmy Uso kicked out. An absolutely iconic Double Uso Splash seemed sure to end the match, but Woods too kicked out at 2.999.  

This non-stop action match was surely a late entry for Match of the Year, keeping the Indianapolis crowd on the edge of their seats the entire time.  The Usos caught Woods in midair with a 1D as he lept off the top rope to seal the deal and retain their Undisputed Tag Team titles. 

The Bloodline is now yet again breaking records as having not only the longest reigning WWE Undisputed Champion in Roman Reigns, but now the longest reigning tag team champions as well.  Can anyone stop them?  

The Brawling Brutes and Drew McIntyre came out to confront The Bloodline after the match ended, making it clear that those feuds are far from over.  Look to see rematches for these guys in the near future.
