Unfortunately for The New Day (Xavier Woods, Big E, Kofi Kingston), they were unable to retain their SmackDown Live Tag Team Titles at the WWE Hell In A Cell pay-per-view (PPV) last night (Sun. October 8, 2017).
The New Day is formed up of WWE Superstars Xavier Woods, Big E, and Kofi Kingston, who have each had very different rises into the main roster. Kingston came first after wrestling in WWE's first developmental territories in Deep South Wrestling (DSW), Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), and Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW).
He made his main roster debut for the WWE's ECW brand as a part of the main roster in 2008 and would go on to embark on a fairly successful singles career, winning the United States and Intercontinental Championships. Kingston would also win both the WWE and World Tag Team Titles with different partners before joining The New Day.
As for Big E, he came up through FCW as well before it was rebranded to NXT. He would go on to defeat Seth Rollins to become the second-ever NXT Champion and made his main roster debut in December of 2012 after attacking John Cena in order to join Dolph Ziggler and AJ Lee.
Woods has been with WWE since 2010 and was in developmental with FCW and NXT until 2013 when he made his main roster debut on Monday Night RAW. The trio would form The New Day together in July of 2014 and would steadily over the years evolve into one of the biggest fan favorites of the WWE Universe.
As a team, The New Day have won four total Tag Team Titles (two reigns as RAW Tag Team Champions and two reigns as SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions). Currently on SmackDown Live, The New Day are in the midst of an amazing feud with The Usos.
The feud is their second major one apart from their Monday Night RAW battles with The Wyatt Family several months back. At last night's Hell In A Cell PPV, The New Day attempted to defend their SmackDown Live Tag Team Title against The Usos, but were ultimately unsuccessful.
After the match, Xavier Woods took to Instagram to post a video showing his battle scars from the brutal match-up. You can check it out here:
