What’s the Story?

Kofi Kingston and Big E of The New Day defeated The Usos in an enthralling match for the Tag Team Championships on the Sin City edition of SmackDown Live.

In Case You Didn’t Know

The feud between The New Day and The Usos began early on in the summer when The New Day debuted on SmackDown Live and issued a challenge to the champions.

The New Day won the match at Money in the Bank pay-per-view by count-out and later won the SmackDown titles at Battleground. The New Day held the titles for 28 days before losing the championships to The Usos at SummerSlam.

The Heart of the Matter

The Usos isolated Big E early on in the match by running him head first into the ring post, nailing him with chair shots and strikes from the kendo stick.

Kofi would gain control for a while and would attempt his signature Trust Fall dive, but the Usos caught him and drove him awkwardly into the barricade.

Big E would try to fight his way back into the match hitting Jimmy and Jey Uso with suplexes, splashes, and even the Big Ending, but was unsuccessful in getting the pin.

The Usos hit Big E with a double superkick and attempted a double splash, but Kofi knocked Jey off the top rope into a table on the outside. Jimmy charged at Kofi only to be caught with an enzeguiri and hit with the Midnight Hour for the pinfall.

What’s Next?

No rematch has been announced yet, but it’s possible that The New Day and The Usos will conclude their feud at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view in October.

If the teams do step into Hell in a Cell for their next Tag Team Championship bout, this will mark the first tag team Hell in a Cell match since D-Generation-X fought Legacy at Hell in a Cell 2009.

Author’s Take

The mere thought of The New Day and The Usos competing in a Hell in a Cell match already makes it a match of the year candidate.

If WWE lets these teams do their thing in the cell, only good things will come of it.
