The recent pairing of former Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston and former United States Champion Big E has sent shock waves through the tag team division on RAW. Not only have these two power houses formed a strong team; they have been joined by long time WWE Universe tag team member of Xavier Woods to top off their new group, The New Day. It truly is a new day for these three men, after losing their championships it seemed as though Kingston and Big E would struggle to regain their top spots on their respective brand. For months, Kingston was unable to string back to back victories together, whereas Big E tore through the RAW division like none other, even coming close to winning the WWE Championship at the Elimination Chamber. Now, these two are looking for a fresh start and with their pairing with Xavier Woods, it seems as though their “New Day” has been a memorable one.
On the contrary, two men who have had a chip on their shoulders have been knocked back a few steps after losing the WWE Tag Team Championships. One of these men is Chris Jericho, who was able to re-enter the single’s division and become the new Money in the Bank holder. Whereas the other was on hiatus with injury up until recent, however Captain Charisma Christian has returned with a vengeance. The Charisma Code is now back and they returned putting their long time rivals The Celtic Thunder back in their place and they even stopped the new team of NXT Generation from taking their spot at Summerslam with a huge victory in the number one contender match over the young team.
We saw a glimpse of what to expect at Summerslam when these two teams met for the first time on RAW a number of weeks ago, with the Charisma Code finding themselves the victor on that occasion. However, that hasn’t stopped The New Day from continuing to impress in their short run as champions; holding their own against some of RAWs best teams in the build up towards Summerslam. But one thing is for sure, at Summerslam we will be seeing two of RAWs best teams on showcase; one brand new team and one team returning to the division, both are looking to stamp their authority on Monday Night RAW.
Can The New Day survive one more day as tag team champions, or can the Charisma Code continue to prove their dominance by reclaiming the WWE Tag Team Championships.
