Cody is now feuding with Brock Lesnar now but KO and Zayn are still fighting The Usos every week. Matt Riddle has joined the Undisputed Tag Team Champions in their rivalry. These three will face The Usos and Solo Sikoa at Backlash next month. Apart from the recent title match, The Usos will have another opportunity to reclaim the titles on next week’s SmackDown.
