WWE Tag Team Championship
The New Day (c) vs. Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows
We’re on day 399 of the New Day’s tag title run. Xavier holds the microphone upside for some reason. It looks weird. The challengers start fast and demolish the incumbent champs, including Xavier on the floor. Big E usually results in New Day winning so it’s good for the champs that he’s working. He struggles to get going against the challengers though, who are organised and aggressive. The New Day look surprisingly weak in the process of taking a hiding. Trouble in Paradise and the Big Ending would beat Anderson if Gallows wasn’t on hand to make a save. Moments later he takes Francesca to the face and New Day retain. 400 days and counting! The babyfaces had to cheat to win and Anderson is looking increasingly useless, due to losses mounting up. I’m not overly bothered about the team though so I can live with more New Day. They’re closing in on some all-time records. The lineage for these belts only goes back to 2002 so New Day already have that record. The all-time WWE tag record is Demolition, which was 478 days. That was in the late 80s though when there were loads of great tag teams. The scene now is not that good.
Final Rating: **1/2
