The New Day to battle Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable on SmackDown LIVE
SmackDown LIVE has just gotten “serious.”
One week after Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable interrupted Big E’s attempt to break an all-time pancake-eating record — an insulting interruption that preceded a loss to The New Day — SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan has decreed that the teams will square off once again this week, and the winners will challenge The Usos for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles at WWE Fastlane.
Bryan made the announcement on Twitter.
I’ve heard enough insults and pancakes being thrown around. So I'm making it official. #TheNewDay will take on @wwegable and @sheltyb803 on #SDLive... and the winner will face @WWEUsos at #WWEFastlane!— Daniel Bryan (@WWEDanielBryan) February 20, 2018
Benjamin & Gable are looking for “serious” competition and view the breakfast-favorable trio as a joke, despite their four Tag Team Championship reigns across Raw and SmackDown LIVE. Tonight, they’ll learn just how serious The New Day can be.
