The New Day beat The Bludgeon Brothers on SmackDown Live this week in Brooklyn to become tag team champions of the blue brand. The title victory means they are now five-time champions in WWE.
Big E has been waiting for this day:
“FIVE. I’VE WAITED YEARS FOR THIS! FIVE! FIVE, WOODSY, FIVE! I DON’T KNOW IF A LOT OF YOU KNOW, BACK IN THE DAY IN NXT I SAID THREE AINT ENOUGH, I NEED FIVE. NOW WE GOT FIVE TAG TEAM TITLE REIGNS. WHEN THEY SAID WE WEREN’T GONNA BE NOTHING. WE CAME OUT AND THEY BOOED US, AFTER ALL THAT HARD WORK. THEY SAID NEW DAY SUCKS. THEY SAID WE SUCKED. THEY WANTED US FIRED. THEY WANTED US GONE, AND LOOK AT US NOW, FOUR YEARS LATER. WE WORKED HARD FOR THIS. PEOPLE THINK WE JUST GOT THIS, WE WERE JUST GIFTED THIS, WE WORKED REAL HARD FOR THIS, AND WE GOT IT. FIVE REIGNS, FIVE REIGNS, COUNT ‘EM UP. WE GONNA GO IN THE HISTORY BOOKS AS ONE OF THE GREATEST FACTIONS AND TAG TEAMS OF ALL TIME AND THAT’S UNDENIABLE.”
