The time for joking has ended. At WrestleMania, WWE’s dominant faction will be revealed when WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day take on The League of Nations in a grave battle for supremacy.
The New Day first earned the ire of Sheamus, Rusev, Alberto Del Rio & King Barrett by tweeting a series of videos in which Big E, Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods portrayed League members in absurd scenarios.
Not taking kindly to the parodies, The League vowed revenge and looked to unseat The New Day as tag team champions. Their first chance came at WWE Roadblock, where, thanks to a well-timed distraction by Woods, Sheamus & Barrett fell short of winning the titles. Two nights later on Raw, Rusev & Del Rio took aim at the tandem titles, but The New Day again escaped with the WWE Tag Team Championship.
The consecutive losses appeared to be The League of Nations’ breaking point. Following the match, the international stable laid waste to The New Day, mugging them in an unrelenting 4-on-3 attack, and then issued a WrestleMania challenge, which the unicorn-horn-hoisting trio accepted the following day on Twitter.
