New Day vs. Nakamura & Cesaro announced for WWE SmackDown


The SmackDown Tag Team Champions are set for non-title action tomorrow night.

WWE has announced that SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Big E) will face Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro (w/ Sami Zayn) in a non-title match on this week's SmackDown. The show is taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The New Day retained their titles against Nakamura & Cesaro on SmackDown three weeks ago after Nakamura & Cesaro answered an open challenge.

New Day also had a Tag Team title defense at TLC. They defeated The Revival in a ladder match.

It was announced on this week's episode of WWE Backstage that -- along with Kingston -- Big E and Xavier Woods have signed new five-year deals with WWE. WWE noted that all three members of The New Day "solidified a pact of identical length and compensation on their contracts to maintain equal status among the team."

Woods underwent surgery in October after suffering a torn Achilles tendon.
