New Day vs. League of Nations tag team title match set for WWE Roadblock

What, you thought New Day ruthless Twitter campaign relentlessly mocking The League of Nations wasn't going to lead to a tag team title match at some point? You know WWE better than that.

Sure enough, the promotion announced today that Sheamus and King Barrett will challenge two of the three members of New Day for the straps at the upcoming Roadblock special on the WWE Network this Sat., Mar. 12, 2016, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

As so helpfully explains:

Yes, just five days after surviving Y2AJ on Raw, the outspoken professors of the power of positivity could be forced to eat their words. In recent weeks, "the lads" have been the subject of ridicule thanks to the social media antics of Big E, Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods. Unfortunately for WWE's "magical" unicorns, the new No. 1 contenders have also been on a dominant streak as of late —leaving numerous competitors in their wake. As two of their members take up the fight for tandem glory, there is no doubt that Alberto Del Rio and Rusev will be at ringside as well. This means the titleholders will not be able to enjoy their usual numbers advantage.

If they can have a match anywhere close to what New Day had with Y2AJ on Monday Night Raw this week, we're in for a treat.

Here's the updated Roadblock match card:

- Triple H vs. Dean Ambrose (WWE world heavyweight championship)
- Brock Lesnar vs. Bray Wyatt
- New Day vs. League of Nations (WWE tag team titles)
- The Revival vs. Enzo Amore & Big Cass (NXT tag team titles)
