ER 2016 New Day v Villains

WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day have dominated the tag ranks since claiming the titles last August, but at Extreme Rules, the pillars of positivity will face a new threat: The Vaudevillains.

Former NXT Tag Team Champions Simon Gotch & Aiden English have been on a roll since debuting in WWE in April. The gentlemanly brawlers cleaned up in the No. 1 Contenders’ Tag Team Tournament, sponsored by Booty-O's, overcoming The Social Outcasts and The Usos before facing Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady in the final, which the referee stopped after Amore suffered an injury.

With the all-important title opportunity slated for Extreme Rules, Gotch & English say they will make a mockery of the decidedly un-booty tag team champions. Old-school eccentricities aside, The Vaudevillains boast an unorthodox offensive style and impeccable teamwork, and they pose a very real threat to Big E, Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods’ Freedbird-esque reign.

Yet, The New Day have not held onto the titles for as long as they have — 273 days by the time of Extreme Rules — because of luck. The bulldozing strength of Big E, jaw-dropping speed and agility of Kingston, and ring savvy of Woods have forged a powerful pact. Come May 22, The New Day might just make The Vaudevillains eat their words ... and their Booty-O's.

Don't miss out when The New Day put up their dukes in battle against The Vaudevillains at Extreme Rules.
