A SmackDown Tag Team title match has been added to WWE Day 1.

The New Day (King Woods and Kofi Kingston) will face current champions The Usos for the titles. This comes based on a match that happened on tonight’s SmackDown, where Woods defeated Jey Uso by disqualification after Jimmy Uso interfered. Backstage in a promo with Kayla Braxton, The New Day confirmed they’d get their title match at Day 1.

The New Day have been feuding with Roman Reigns and the Usos in recent weeks. The Bloodline took out Kofi Kingston, attacking his knee and putting him out of action for a few weeks. Roman Reigns also destroyed Woods’ crown and scepter, which he won after winning the King of the Ring tournament back in October.  

Already announced for Day 1, which takes place on January 1, 2022 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, includes a triple threat match for the WWE title involving champion Big E against Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns defending the WWE Universal title against Brock Lesnar.
