• New Champions Crowned On SmackDown Live, Reason Behind The Title Change

In the main event of tonight’s SmackDown Live, The New Day defeated The Bludgeon Brothers in a No DQ match to win the SmackDown Tag Team Titles.

This is The New Day’s 3rd reign with the SmackDown Tag Team Titles and 5th reign overall as Tag Team Champions in WWE.

The reason behind this Title change has to do with WWE wanting to break records with The New Day.

WWE officials have already booked The New Day to beat Demolition’s record of having the longest Tag Team Title reign a few years back (although they didn’t break it technically as they held different Titles).

The next record that WWE officials are looking to break with The New Day is the record of holding the most Tag Team Titles in WWE by a single team.

The New Day are now 5 time WWE Tag Team Champions and they would have to more than double that number to beat that record.

The New Day have now equalled The Usos as 5 time WWE Tag Team Champions.

Also, Rowan of The Bludgeon Brothers is expected to undergo surgery for a biceps injury later this week, so that played a role in the Title change as well.
