• WWE Planning Another Title Match For The Horror Show At Extreme Rules
The New Day defended the SmackDown Tag Team Championship against Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura last week, but the match ended without a result when a brawl broke out between the two teams.
Cesaro and Nakamura destroyed the Champions to end the show.
The New Day were put through a table by Nakamura and Cesaro, which could be a hint that WWE is planning their third encounter in a Tables match at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules.
