The New Day def. Daniel Bryan & Rowan and Heavy Machinery to become the new SmackDown Tag Team Champions (Triple Threat Match)

The New Day def. Daniel Bryan & Rowan and Heavy Machinery to become the new SmackDown Tag Team Champions (Triple Threat Match)

PHILADELPHIA — Could it be? Could The New Day end WWE Extreme Rules with titles around each and every one of their swiveling waists? That question still depends on Kofi Kingston’s bout with Samoa Joe, but Big E & Xavier Woods certainly did as they promised by winning the “W. W. E. Smack. Down. Tag. Team. Championships!!!” in a wild Triple Threat Match that also included Heavy Machinery and the now-former titleholders, Daniel Bryan & Rowan.

The match couldn’t have ended up worse for “The Planet’s Champions,” and not just because they lost the titles: Not only did New Day score the deciding fall against the titleholders, Bryan & Rowan’s insistence that none of their challengers could possibly measure up was proven wrong time and time again long before the fateful maneuver that put Bryan down. Whether it was Bryan’s technical know-how or Rowan’s overwhelming, big-man power, the challengers rose to the (lofty) occasion at every turn to keep the champs on their toes. Heavy Machinery continued their long coming-out party with an impressive stretch of offense that left every single one of their opponents down outside the ring. If not for a timely tag by Bryan in the midst of a Tower of Doom, the Blue Collar Solid hosses might have left Philly with all the goods.

But unfortunately, that same Tower of Doom took Otis & Tucker out of the running, leaving Bryan to try his luck against Big E. The Beard proved to be a scrappy foe despite the size difference, torqueing E up in a modified LeBell Lock that seemingly turned every single one of the big man’s limbs inside out. His barrage of kicks, however, did nothing except fire up his sizeable challenger; a wild-eyed E rose from his knee, demanded Bryan lay as many slaps in as he could, and simply snatched the champion out of the air and onto his shoulders. Xavier Woods, revved up beyond all possible recognition, took flight off the turnbuckle and connected with the Midnight Hour to claim New Day’s sixth Tag Team Championship. Will they keep the WWE Championship in their ranks as well? There’s plenty of unicorn magic left in this team. All they need now is a miracle.
