"The fact that we have talented performers of color is something that is very big for us," Big E said. "This day means a lot to all of us, not just the in-ring performers, but all people of color who are excelling. That's something that we all want to embrace and to celebrate."

The New Day set the record for longest tag team championship reign, beating Demolition's old record of 482 days that had stood for almost three decades.
