Big E is known as someone great to follow on social media.
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Atlanta, GA at the Philips Arena on the USA Network, The Shield (Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Dean Ambrose) officially challenged The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods) to a six-man tag team match at the upcoming Survivor Series PPV (pay-per-view) event.
Obviously, The New Day accepted the challenge and the sports entertainment company made the match official. Big E had a great reaction to the challenge. He wrote the following on his official Twitter account:
“Suffering succotash! We, The New Day, accept the Shield’s challenge at Survivor Series but request that all shock-absorbing body armor including (but not limited to) protective vests, shoulder pads, and heavy wool sweaters be disallowed for competitive use.”
Although Kingston and Big E had found some success while singles competitors, they have found their niche as a tag team. The stable originally debuted on the July 21, 2014 episode of Raw, but made their official television debut as The New Day in November 2014.
During their time together, they are three-time world tag team champions within the company. They won the WWE (Raw) Tag Team Champions twice with their second reign being the longest for any Tag Team Championship in WWE history at 483 days, and the SmackDown Tag Team Championship once.
Make no mistake about it, they are a special group, who defends the titles under the Freebird rule, with all three members being recognized as champions.By looking back on their careers, they won their first WWE Tag Team Championship in April of 2015 Extreme Rules and lost them to The Prime Time Players the following month at the Money in the Bank PPV (pay-per-view event). They kicked off their second reign, which became the longest in the title's history when they won the titles the following year.
On December 14, 2016, they became the longest reigning tag team champions in WWE history by beating Demolition's 28-year-old record of 478 days with WWE's original World Tag Team Championship and the longest reigning champions for any WWE championship over the last two decades. It was impressive, to say the least.
Their reigns came to an end when they lost to Cesaro and Sheamus four days later after making history. WWE then decided to make some changes and drafted the group to the SmackDown brand in April of this year where they would go onto capture the SmackDown Tag Team Championship as well. The reign didn’t last long as they lost the titles at SummerSlam pay-per-view event at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York to The Usos.
The New Day regaining them on the September 12 episode of SmackDown when Big E and Kingston defeated The Usos in a Sin City Street Fight. The Usos would invoke their rematch at the Hell In a Cell pay-per-view and The New Day would lose the titles back to The Usos in a Hell In a Cell match.
The Survivor Series pay-per-view event takes place on Sunday, November 19, 2017 in Houston, Texas at the Toyota Center and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. Both Raw and SmackDown brands will be featured.
