Due to the storyline injury to Big E, New Day members Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston will be the ones defending the titles. This is the second time that Gallows and Anderson challenge for the titles on pay-per-view since joining WWE earlier this year, with the last time being at Money in the Bank. Anderson and Gallows were unsuccessful in acquiring the titles in a Fatal 4-Way tag team match.  

This is the second reign for The New Day as WWE Tag Team champions. On July 20, 2016, The New Day broke Paul London and Brian Kendrick's 331-day record for longest reign as champions, but still trail the Valiant Brothers and Demolition, who had longer reigns with a previous incarnation of the titles.
