New Day Earns Championship Opportunity Against Bludgeon Brothers At WWE SummerSlam

New Day could become five time Champions. 

In order to find someone to challenge the Smackdown Tag Team Champions the Bludgeon Brothers, General Manager Paige created a four team tournament to find a number one contender. The New Day and the Bar met on Smackdown this week in the finals of that tournament.

Big E and Kofi Kingston of the New Day defeated Sheamus and Cesaro and the following is an excerpt from the Fightful play-by-play provided by Ryan Cook. 

The Bar hit a double team move off of the top for a near fall that Kofi breaks up before Cesaro puts E in a brief swing and locks in a sharpshooter. Kofi hits a tornado DDT off of the barricade to Sheamus before Cesaro turns it into a cross face and E powers out of it before Kofi tags himself in. New Day then hit the Midnight Hour for the pin and the win.

Winner: New Day defeat The Bar via pinfall to gain the right to face the Bludgeon Brothers at Summerslam when they pin Cesaro with the Midnight Hour.

Fightful Wrestling had live coverage, discussion and a recapping podcast for Smackdown and the same will be done for WWE SummerSlam.
