The New Day def. Rusev & Jinder Mahal
Good news: The New Day finally has ice cream … themed T-shirts. The men of 1,000 merch items debuted new threads on Raw, while also continuing to hype the possibility of New Day ice cream to the WWE Universe. In even better news, New Day once again prevailed in a bout over Rusev & Jinder Mahal. (The Shining Stars were originally and incorrectly introduced as their opponents in an Oscar-style mix-up; a clerical error revealed they’ll be facing Big Show later in the evening.)
The rarely used duo of Big E & Xavier Woods turned in solid work against The Super Athlete and The Maharajah, though Rusev had Woods on the literal ropes for a long, long time. An eventual surge by Woods forced Rusev to tag in Mahal, though an outside confrontation between Rusev and Kofi Kingston left Mahal high-and-dry and ripe for a surprise roll-up from Woods. Now, for the bad news: Rusev & Mahal did not seem to take their loss too well, bickering and jaw-jacking after their defeat. Are the days of “Handsome” Rusev and “Hard-body” Mahal numbered?
