Shane McMahon revealed on tonight's episode of Talking Smack that American Alpha will not be able to face Heath Slater & Rhyno this Sunday night at WWE Backlash in the finals of the WWE Tag Team Tournament. American Alpha was pulled from the match due to a storyline injury suffered by Chad Gable on tonight's episode of SmackDown at the hands of The Usos. It was said that Gable will be out for 2-4 weeks after injuring his ACL.
It was announced that the Hype Bros. will now face The Usos at Backlash this Sunday. The winner of that match will face Slater & Rhyno later that evening for the titles.
