New Day Capture Tag Team Titles, WrestleMania Opponents Confirmed

New Day tag team champions

The New Day have overthrown the Hurt Business to reclaim the WWE RAW Tag Team Titles.

Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander had held the tag titles since they defeated Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston at WWE TLC in December.

The momentum swung back and forth in a high quality contest before the New Day finally got the upper hand. Kingston hit Trouble In Paradise and Woods quickly followed up with The Big Elbow drop into the Day Break to pick up the win.

However, the duo weren’t able to celebrate their victory for long.

As the new champions toasted their hard-fought win, AJ Styles and his man-mountain of an accomplice Omos made their way to the ring. After a confrontation between the two teams it was announced that Kingston and Woods will defend their newly won titles against Styles and Omos at WrestleMania.

The match will mark Omos’ in-ring WWE debut.

The defeat will not only spell disappointment for Benjamin and Alexander but also for the entire Hurt Business faction, who had been sitting pretty on top of RAW with both the tag titles and the WWE Title amongst their ranks.

Earlier in the night it was announced that Bobby Lashley will defend his WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania.
