Back at SummerSlam 2015 (August 23, 2015), the New Day (Big E, Xavier Woods, and Kofi Kingston) defeated then champions the Prime Time Players (Darren Young and Titu O’Neil) in a Fatal 4-Way tag team match (also including the Lucha Dragons: Sin Cara & Kalisto and Los Matadores: Diego & Fernando); to win their 2nd Tag Team Championship.

From then on; the New Day took on the likes of the Dudley Boyz, the Lucha Dragons, and the Usos. Despite the fact that they retained the titles on several occasions via DQ, they still accumulated a lot of clean victories over all challengers. Those were huge contributors to their credibility and momentum.

Surprisingly; even though they lost some big matches (ex: Wresltemania XXXII), they never lost momentum or credibility as champions.

It’s not often that anyone recovers big time after a loss at the “Grandest stage of them all”

Somehow, the New Day also managed to win the fans over after initial negative reactions (especially as heels). They have that goofy charisma and mixed athletic ability. When they won their 2nd championship, many fans were surprised that they even made it that far.

Now that the New Day has broken the record for longest tag team championship reign (held by Demolition); what more can they do? It will be an absolute buzzkill to the fans and momentum killer to the team altogether.

Realistically; they have to drop the titles at some point; but the questions is: who is going to beat them? They have defeated every tag team that they have faced. It wouldn’t make sense to have them lose the titles just because they broke the record. There has to be a way to execute the loss; pretty much the New Day would have to lose in the most valiant effort.

The transition should happen shortly before the Royal Rumble or at the PPV itself. It would be best if they end the year on a high note.

For the time being; we don’t know who the ideal opponents to dethrone the New Day will be. We have to play the waiting game in the meantime, and perhaps we will find out soon.
