Kofi Kingston and Big E of The New Day defeated Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder of The Revival earlier today to become the new Smackdown Tag Team Champions.
The match went down at the Friday Night Smackdown television tapings in Manchester, England this afternoon, and will air on tonight’s show in its usual timeslot.
Kingston and E’s longtime partner Xavier Woods recently suffered a serious injury and will likely be out of action until summer 2020, so he was not with the crew in Manchester for today’s title win.
This is the 7th reign as tag team champions for The New Day as a collective; 2 with the Raw titles, and now 5 with the Smackdown titles. Kingston is actually a 10-time tag team champion as he also won the straps with CM Punk, Evan Bourne (Matt Sydal) and R-Truth at different points throughout his career.
