WWE announced on Monday Night Raw that a huge tag team grudge match has been added to the card for WrestleMania Saturday.

On Raw, the company announced that The New Days stars Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston will team up to face the duo of Ridge Holland and Sheamus.

The issues between the teams have escalated on SmackDown in recent weeks following a scary moment in a tag team bout featuring Woods and Kingston’s New Day partner Big E.

On the March 11th edition of SmackDown, a serious injury to Big E overshadowed the rest of the show. The former WWE Champion had been teaming with Kofi Kingston to take on Sheamus and Ridge Holland.

After Big E fell to the outside, he was given an overhead Belly to Belly Suplex by Ridge Holland. However, instead of Big E flipping all the way over and landing on his back, he landed on his head and neck, resulting in a broken neck. Big E has commented since that a doctor has told him he narrowly avoided absolute catastrophe with the nasty injury.

Fightful Select previously reported that Big E was factored into plans for a potential six-man tag team match at WrestleMania 38 with Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods to face the team of Sheamus, Ridge Holland, and Pete Dunne – now known as Butch – who debuted on the same show where Big E suffered his injury.
