– Last night’s WWE SmackDown saw Rusev & Aiden English defeat SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos in a non-title match. In the Fallout video above, Rusev & English talk to Dasha Fuentes about their momentum going into the Fatal 4 Way with The Usos, The New Day and Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable at Sunday’s WWE Clash of Champions pay-per-view. Rusev says their lucky number for Sunday is three – 3 victories in a row, 3 Rusev Days, 3 Machka t-shirts and 2 tag team titles. Rusev is all smiles as he tells English to save his voice for Sunday and thanks Dasha for asking.
