It’s a new day, yes it is! For The New Day are getting a brand-spanking new opportunity to capture The Usos’ SmackDown Tag Team Championship at WWE Battleground on Sunday, July 23.
At the height of their previous title showdown at WWE Money in the Bank, the resilient Kofi Kingston & Big E looked incredibly strong against their tough Samoan adversaries. That was until Jimmy & Jey Uso opted to take a walk and a count-out loss that saved their SmackDown Tag Team Championship.
But the “Power of Positivity” refuses to be denied, and the longest-reigning Tag Team Champions in WWE history are coming back for more! Can The Usos fend off their rejuvenated foes to maintain their grasp on the gold? Or will Day One finally give way to a New Day?
Find out which of the elite tandems will emerge victorious when WWE Battleground streams live Sunday, July 23 at 8 ET/5 PT, on the award-winning WWE Network.

Wale is in the ring for the Rap Battle. The Usos make their way to the ring and they are joined by an army of people dressed like them. The New Day make their way to the ring and they are joined by the remaining members of the Rosebuds. Wale explains the rules. It needs to stay clean.
Big E says the Usos eat off the table they set. Before the New Day it was dark matches. He says they should could be called Chuck E Cheeks because they are butts. He tells them to say hi to their pops because even Rikishi knows New Day Rocks.
Jimmy says the New Day and Usos in a Rap Off, it can’t be. What are they going to talk about? Unicorns. Jey says they will talk about Double Ds and how Woods is only 5′ 1″ instead of 5′ 3″. Jey says Big E was so predictable because they know about his pops. What about your pops.
Jey wants to keep it PG. Jimmy tells him not to go Rated R like his boy Xavier Woods.
Kofi takes over and he says Jimmy looks like he has never been in or worked out in a gym. That is true for you too because you are his twin. He tells them that they need to stop. Kofi says they have muffin tops. He wants to know why they are wrestling in shirts. Kofi says they have a first trimester pooch. They are rocking weenie do. That is when your gut hangs out more than your weenie do.
Jey asks if Kofi was Jamaican but Jimmy says he was Jafakin. They are giving Jamiacans a bad name. Jimmy says if Ron Simmons was here, he would say DAMN. They say that in order to win tonight, they will need to find a fourth New Day member.
Xavier takes over and he says the New Day always says dress for the job you want, not the job you already have. They look like a million bucks while the Usos look like divorced dads. Woods says that Jim was nothing until your wife put you on Total Divas. You both used to wear face paint and bright colors. You saw the New Day coming on the horizon. You should go back to doing what you did best . . . carrying bags . . . for Roman.
Jimmy pushes Woods and it all breaks down.
Wale disqualifies The Usos and the winners are the New Day.
