Wrestling stable The New Day is one of the most successful tag team trios in WWE history. Formed by Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods, The New Day have established themselves as one of the federation’s top teams having become two-time Raw Tag Team Champions and having held their title for the second-longest time in WWE history.
Multiple title-winner Kofi Kingston, former NXT Champion Big E and Xavier Woods came together as The New Day for the first time in November 2014. Following their debut win, the trio quickly made a name for themselves, winning numerous matches. The trio’s real test came in May 2015 when, having defeated the Lucha Dragons in earlier rounds, The New Day became the WWE Tag Team Champions when they beat Tyson Kidd and Cesaro.
As the Tag Team Champions, The New Day had to defend their title numerous times, beating the likes of The Dudley Boyz and The League of Nations. They successfully managed to retain their title long enough to become the longest reigning WWE Tag Team Champions, a reign that eventually came to an end in December 2016 after 483 days.
Praised for their positivity and entertaining identities, The New Day are still regarded as one of the top Tag Teams in WWE and are expected to continue their success in the future. They were named the Tag Team of the Year in 2015 and 2016 by Pro Wrestling Illustrated as well as Rolling Stone’s WWE Wrestlers of the Year in 2015.read more
