The New Day has proved without a doubt that they are the greatest tag team in the WWE.

WWE correspondent Megan Morant caught up with King Woods and Sir Kofi Kingston this week on Talking Smack. The duo spoke about their impressive showing on the blue brand.

Kofi said their win should come as no surprise since The New Day was already awarded the greatest tag team in all of WWE a few months ago:

"We feel like 'I told you so.' We've been telling everybody that we're the best tag team for a very long time. As a matter of fact on several months ago, we won the award for the greatest tag team of all time. So it was kind of a spoiler alert by putting us in that match."

King Woods said The New Day is not holding any titles because they wanted to give some breathing room to other teams in the division. Woods maintained that New Day has been the dominant force in the WWE tag team landscape for close to a decade:

Kofi stated, "Just because we don't have the actual, physical belt around our waist does not mean that we're not the champions."
Woods added, "All that means is that we're allowing other people to breathe for a second. We've had a stranglehold, a literal stranglehold, on this division for damn near a decade at this point. So we're allowing other teams to flourish a little bit on."
