It has already been announced that The New Day are set to defend their Tag Team Championships against Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows next weekend at SummerSlam but the build up to the match could see Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston without their tag team partner after it has been reported that he could be missing for another week.
Big E was injured on last week's episode of Raw when Anderson and Gallows targeted his groin area during their post-match brawl. It was then announced by WWE.com a few hours later that following medical examinations and evaluations, Big E had suffered a contusion to the affected area.
The Company also added that it was unknown when Big E would return to action following the injury, meaning that he could miss the Championship match in just 10 days time.

SUMMERSLAM TITLE LOSS?
Interestingly since WWE haven't confirmed when Big E will return to action, he has been missed off the official promo image ahead of the match which means that his two New Day teammates could be forced to face The Club without an equalizer.
The longest reigning Tag Team Champions will have held the titles for a year at SummerSlam and it is currently being speculated that Big E being missing from the match could be the reason thy are forced to drop their titles to The Club.
Kofi Kingston was missing from the match at Money in the Bank in 2015 when The New Day first lost their titles to The Prime Time Players. This was thought to have been the reason why the team lost their titles that night.
THE NEW DAY VS THE CLUB
The Club delivered a fantastic backstage promo on Raw this week that made light of Big E's recently worked injury and saw many fans hyping about the group on Social Media.
It is thought that The Club are being pushed towards the Tag Team Championships following their success with AJ Styles a few weeks ago. The duo have held many titles outside of WWE but this would be their first in WWE since they arrived a few months ago.
Big E's return date is still up in the air and it is unclear when he will return to his teammates but it does make sense for him to stay off screen for another week whilst WWE presents the final Raw build up to their Biggest Party of The Summer, but will this have major implications on the Tag Team Championships?
