SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day def. The Bar

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day def. The Bar

MELBOURNE, Australia – In the journey to SmackDown tag team supremacy, The Bar have fought hard to pick up where their last Tag Team Title reign ended. Yet, despite having brought their best effort to Australia’s MCG with another action-packed chapter in the battle for the blue brand’s Tag Team Championship, the narrative remains under the direction of the five-time champions, The New Day.

The collision between SmackDown’s premier tandems was electric, as 70,309 in attendance watched Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods pull out all the stops to thwart Sheamus & Cesaro from cutting short their latest title (and Five-Timers Club) reign. However, it was The Bar’s combination of brute strength and sheer force that arguably made this The New Day’s toughest challenge yet. At one point, both Kingston and Woods flew outside the ring, only for Cesaro and Sheamus to catch them in mid-air and slam them into the turnbuckle. However, The Power of Positivity was strong in the Melbourne air, as the WWE Universe in attendance – along with Big E at ringside – clamored for their resurgence.

In the bout’s closing moments, Kofi Kingston picked up a boost of momentum, connecting Sheamus with a Trouble In Paradise outside the ring and breaking up Cesaro’s rope-assisted pinfall attempt on Woods. This opened the door for Woods to drop The Swiss Cyborg with a Backstabber, and for Kingston to follow up with a top-rope drop onto Cesaro for the win.
