#4 New Day for the SmackDown Live Tag Team Championships

Don't you dare be sour
Don't you dare be sour

At Hell in a Cell, The New Day and The Usos took each other to the limit, and had, what was possibly the match of the entire night. Two nights later on SmackDown Live, they had a face off with one another, where both teams expressed their respect for each other after their titanic clash.

Having played 'hot potato' with the SmackDown Live Tag Team Championships thus far, the two teams buried the hatchet and surprisingly, commenced their next program. Well, ideally, The New Day were owed a contractual rematch, considering they lost their championships at Hell in a Cell!

Instead, we had a Fatal 4-Way match that was eventually won by Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin, who go on to face The Usos next. The New Day did not even raise the fact that they deserved a title opportunity!

Practicality won in this case, as it was time to freshen up the tag team scenario after only two teams had dominated the division in the past.
