SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day def. Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro

The New Day vs. Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro – SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match: SmackDown, Nov. 29, 2019

After issuing an open challenge, The New Day defend their Tag Team Titles against Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro.

Though they’re down a member, The New Day are on their game in the midst of their seventh tag team championship reign.

Kofi Kingston & Big E retained their SmackDown Tag Team Titles against the team of Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro, who answered their open challenge.

Celebrating the holiday by presenting a title opportunity for any tag team in the locker room, The New Day were met by the arrival of Sami Zayn with the Intercontinental Champion and Swiss Cyborg in tow — and The Critic of the Critics unleashed a diatribe on the alleged evils of Thanksgiving and Black Friday.

Zayn's biggest impact, however, occurred when he may have inadvertently cost his allies the match. 

As the official was preoccupied with Cesaro late in the match, Zayn tried to take advantage by wielding The New Day's pancake tray as a weapon, but he was caught red-handed by the referee. That earned him an ejection from ringside, a decision that seemed to distract The Swiss Cyborg.

By the time Cesaro regained his focus, he was on the receiving end of Trouble in Paradise from Kingston. And just like that, a successful title defense was in the books for The New Day — a team that knows a thing or two about long championship reigns.
