The Bar def. The New Day to win the SmackDown Tag Team Titles
With a bunch of royalty on commentary (shout-outs to WWE Hall of Famers Jerry Lawler and King Booker), The Bar got another crack at The New Day and the SmackDown Tag Team Championship here on SmackDown 1000.
This WWE Super Show-Down rematch was a barnburner from the start with both teams looking to capitalize on their vast knowledge of the other. The New Day looked to be closing in on a successful title defense when Big E and Woods downed Sheamus with a series of high-impact maneuvers, but The Celtic Warrior survived the onslaught. New Day responded by surviving a close call of their own when Big E somehow kicked out after an absolutely unbelievable Neutralizer from Cesaro.
The epic title fight was soon interrupted by Big Show, who arrived right in the heat of the action and stalked to ringside with a purpose. The World’s Largest Athlete helped Kofi Kingston back to his feet after he had been laid out by The Bar, but he viciously Chokeslammed The Dreadlocked Dynamo through a table, much to the shock of the WWE Universe and Big E. The distressed Big E was easy pickings as soon as he turned around, as Sheamus cracked him with a flush Brogue Kick to secure the three-count and the SmackDown Tag Team Titles.
Big Show then celebrated with The Bar, holding the titles high above his head. No one exactly knew why Big Show had done what he’d done, but one thing was clear: Everyone else was in big trouble.
