The WWE made the announcement that The New Day will put their titles on the line once again this week, after successfully defending them on Monday Night Raw against the team of Chris Jericho and AJ Styles, formerly known as Y2AJ.
After what has been happening between the two teams over the past couple of weeks, this could be a strong indication that the two sides will be involved in a match at WrestleMania 32 as well, and their clash at Roadblock is a taster of what is to come.
Recently, The New Day members Big E, Xavier Woods, and Kofi Kingston, have been posting videos onto social media, mocking the League of Nations members Sheamus, Barrett, Alberto Del Rio, and Rusev.
The League of Nations have been booked strongly as of late, and it could be an indication that we will have a title change at Roadblock. King Barrett has, in the past, expressed his desire to have a run with the Tag Team titles before he leaves the WWE. With him rumored to be leaving the company in the near future, creative might be giving him a chance to do so before he exits.
Also, there has been rumors floating around that The New Day will be changing from heel to face soon. The team has connected really well with the WWE Universe as a heel team, so turning them face will be a risky move for the company.
They have already been portrayed once before as a face team, and it didn't really go down well. The charisma of Woods, Big E, and Kingston have proven to work better in a heel persona, so it's a bold move for the WWE to book them once again as the opposite.
However, you can see the logic behind this move. As a heel team, The New Day have held the Tag Team Championships for over 200 days, and they're running out of realistic face team contenders. Having them as a face team will open the door for heel teams, like the League of Nations, to feud for the titles against and extend their time as a team further.
