The Big Show returns to Smackdown this week.
Renee Young interviews the Usos prior to their match. She discusses the response to them winning the titles. They say it hasn't sunk in yet, and they are on cloud nine. Kids, when you work hard and achieve your goal, it feels great. Everyone's excited right? Well, accept the Outlaws. What's next for them? We're going to WrestleMania!
The Outlaws now make their way out. They are dressed in street clothes, and they call Renee Tanya again and mock the crowd. They have a feeling of awe, not due to new tag champions, but because they are in the ring with the luckiest boys in the world. They have to postpone their rematch due to an injury to Road Dogg. They are not 100%, so when they are, those titles will come back home with them.
Brad Maddox appears and says he checked with doctors and Dogg is legit injured. When he is cleared, they will get their rematch. Since they have promised a tag title match, that is what they will get. Their opponents are Los Matadores.
The Outlaws are on commentary. They play to the crowd, and then shake hands and we're underway. Side headlock takedown by Jimmy, off the ropes and a shoulder block to the Matador. Roll up by Jimmy and that gets 2. They trade pinning combos, arm drags exchanged, Jimmy and the Matador both throw dropkicks and stand off. Jey and the other Matador, Diego apparently, are in.

To the corner, tag to Jey, and an elbow in the corner on Diego, and a cover for 2. Off the ropes, reversal, Diego charges and is sent to the floor. Suicide dive connects for Jey. Fernando then flies off the top onto Jey, and then Jimmy with a dive onto both Matadores…
Back from commercial as the champs are in control. Tag and a double team elbow drop and cover gets 2. Jey is in for the Usos, and works a top wristlock. Tag by the Matadores, and they double team Jey and Fernando gets a cover for 2. Tag back to Diego, they do a sloppy double team monkey flip, and a cover gets 2. Quick tags by the Matadores, slingshot senton onto Jey and a cover gets 2. The Matadores with the quick tags and double teams, and then slows down Jey with the headlock. Jey to his feet, escapes, and they hits the ropes and then clothesline each other and both men are down. Tag to Jimmy as he starts to clean house. Clotheslines, sidekick and then the full nelson bomb connects. Samoan clambake by Jimmy misses, and they then do the tombstone piledriver tease, but Fernando gets a DDT out of that and gets a cover for 2. Senton by Fernando, misses the moonsaualt, and Jimmy gets a toss up Samoan drop for 2. Diego in and breaks that up, and eats a superkick from Jey. Double superkick for Fernando. Superfly splash ands that is all.
OFFICIAL RESULT: The Usos @ 9:00 via pin
The Outlaws try to mess with Torito, who gets fired up and leaps onto Gunn (who does a totally awesome wacky sell job) and then gets a RANA. He rolls away from them, they chase into the ring and the Matadores and Torito hit a wacky triple team move on him and celebrate. Tough week for the Outlaws.
