In case you didn't know...

Following their initial call-up to the main roster as part of the 2018 Superstar Shake-up, former NXT faction SAnitY eventually made its unofficial in-ring debut for SmackDown Live three weeks ago, when they went head-to-head against former SD Live Tag Team Champions The Usos in a tag team match.

However, prior to their scheduled tag team match against Jimmy and Jey Uso, the menacing trio of Eric Young, Killian Dain, and Alexander Wolfe laid out a gruesome beatdown to their slated opponents and marked their main roster arrival in style.

Also, on last week's edition of SmackDown Live, The New Day also suffered the same fate as The Usos, as SAnitY once again made their presence felt by attacking the trio of Big E, Kofi, and Xavier Woods during their pancake-eating competition.

The heart of the matter

WWE SmackDown Live General Manager Paige has announced via her official Twitter handle that The New Day is now all set to compete in a Tables Match against former NXT Tag Team Champions SAnitY at the upcoming WWE Extreme Rules Kickoff pre-show, this Sunday.

Paige went on to post the following on her Twitter, following the hectic aftermath of the wild brawl between The New Day and SAnitY on last week's episode of SmackDown Live.
