A tag-team title match has been announced for this week’s WWE Friday Night SmackDown On FOX show.
WWE announced on Thursday that The New Day’s Kofi Kingston & Big E. will be defending their SmackDown Tag-Team Titles against Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro on this coming Friday night’s episode from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The following announcement was released via WWE.com this afternoon:
The New Day welcome challenge from Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro
Following a successful title defense at WWE TLC, The New Day will face Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro in a non-title match.
In the first edition of this matchup, the Intercontinental Champion & The Swiss Cyborg answered the champions’ post-Thanksgiving open challenge, but a well-timed Trouble in Paradise carried Kofi Kingston & Big E to the victory. Can Sami Zayn’s stable put The New Day on notice, or will the champions continue their dominance?
