New Day announces tag team tournament to crown No. 1 contenders on 'RAW'

This tournament is by no means booty.

On Monday's RAW, the two-time WWE World Tag Team Champions The New Day came out, gyrated a bit and then announced a No. 1 contender tag team tournament for their titles ... sponsored by Booty-O's, of course. The graphics alone make this one a winner.

The first match in the tournament immediately followed the announcement, with the Dudley Boyz taking on the Lucha Dragons. The Dudleys won in very short order via pinfall, as they hit Sin Cara with the 3D while Kalisto was incapacitated on the floor. They'll advance to the semifinals.

NXT fans will, of course, note that WWE's sister promotion is very well represented in this tournament. The recently-debuted Vaudevillains and Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady are included, as are the Ascension and the aforementioned Lucha Dragons. That's fully half the field of the tournament having come directly from NXT. Not too shabby.
