Tag Team of the Year – The New Day
New. Day. Rocks. New. Day. Rocks.
When the New Day debuted as a team in WWE not many people could have imagined the impact they would have on the company. Whilst they were set up to be a group of Bible preacher style, motivational speakers, they couldn’t be further from that now.
In the last 12 months, they have become the most entertaining thing on WWE on a consistent basis. All three men were decent in the ring but were heading nowhere as sole performers. They were thrown together and ran with what they were given. At times it looked like the idea would sink without a trace, but with a combination of amazing microphone work, solid ring work and epic comedy spots they have become the best thing on WWE tv.
From the beginning of their promo/entrances, with Big E proclaiming “FEEL THE POWAH”, to the playing of the trombone by Xavier Woods, to Kofi and his amazing sneakers, this is three men who have clicked and made themselves so entertaining you can’t ignore them. And don’t get me started on the fact they’ve managed to make a strap on Unicorn horn one of the must have pieces of merchandise for WWE fans around the world.
This team has a long way to go to be classed as a true great, but if they continue in the same vein as they currently are, they will go down as one of the greatest teams of all time. Keep those shiny gold belts on them for a long time to come, Mr McMahon.
