When Xavier Woods pinned Jimmy Uso, history was made. Yes, it was the first time Woods actually won a championship belt, but the real moment was for Kofi Kingston.
Kofi became the only wrestler to win four different tag team titles (WWE, World, RAW, and SmackDown). Congrats, Kofi!
The Botchamania Guy had made his name by compiling videos of WWE's in ring blooper real. Kofi tweeted a response in hopes of letting his next slip-up go unnoticed.
hopefully that at least earns me a free botch that you won't air...— Kofi Kingston (@TrueKofi) July 25, 2017
After their match, the New Day did a back stage interview. Instead of having to perform live, this was just three friends relishing their moment. Big E and Woods both told Kofi that he was an inspiration to them and to an entire generation of African American fans.
Their big win came in style as it was quite possibly the New Day's finest match to date. Really, their rivalry with the Usos has been their best work.
It was a feud that has only intensified as both teams faced off repeatedly in singles matches over the past months. WWE would like us to remember the 4th of July rap battle between the teams as the culmination of their feud, while conveniently forgetting certain parts from that unremarkable segment that later had to be removed from the broadcast.0comments
But Sunday's rematch was the real culmination of all that these both teams have been building toward have been building towards and a reminder that though all possess the gift of gab and can work a crowd like few others, their real talents lie in physical feats and in-ring ability.
We look forward to seeing what The New Day bring to the table as new and once again champions of their division on SmackDown Live!
