This Friday’s SmackDown just got a bit more interesting as WWE has announced a non-title tag team match. The match will see SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day face off against Cesaro and WWE Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura. The match was on after Big E and Kofi Kingston accepted the recent challenge from Cesaro, Nakamura and Sami Zayn.
Below is WWE's announcement on the match:
The New Day welcome challenge from Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro.
Following a successful title defense at WWE TLC, The New Day will face Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro in a non-title match.
In the first edition of this matchup, the Intercontinental Champion & The Swiss Cyborg answered the champions' post-Thanksgiving open challenge, but a well-timed Trouble in Paradise carried Kofi Kingston & Big E to the victory. Can Sami Zayn's stable put The New Day on notice, or will the champions continue their dominance?
Check out the top entertainment news of the day below:
On Sunday, New Day defeated The Revival in a ladder match to retain the SmackDown Tag Team Championships at WWE TLC. It was a thrilling match. In the end, Kofi Kingston swung the championships and hit Scott Dawson in the face, knocking him off a ladder and through another lying near the corner. He was then able to reach up and grab the swinging belts for the New Day to retain the title.
The Revival may have had the advantage in a basic tag team match, but prior to the go-home episode of SmackDown before TLC, it was announced that they would compete in a ladder match. This arguably swung the pendulum in New Day's direction and was the reason behind their victory.
In recent months, New Day and The Revival have clearly been the top two teams, and they have faced each other on several occasions as a result.
