WWE has announced that at Extreme Rules 2018, Daniel Bryan and Rowan will defend their SmackDown Tag Team Championships against Big E and Xavier Woods of The New Day.
The following is the official match preview from WWE.com:
After pleading for “real” competition, SmackDown Tag Team Champions Daniel Bryan & Rowan will get more than they bargained for against The New Day at Extreme Rules.
Ever since they captured the SmackDown Tag Team Championship, Bryan & Rowan have touted themselves as the saviors of the tag team division. While a successful championship defense over Heavy Machinery at WWE Stomping Grounds added stock to their boasts, reality came crashing down on the pair during the June 25 installment of SmackDown LIVE, when The New Day scored a victory over them in non-title action.
Whether they want to admit it, Bryan & Rowan face a tough challenge in Big E and Xavier Woods, as The New Day are not only three-time SmackDown Tag Team Champions but also recordholders of the longest WWE Tag Team Title reign at 483 days.
Can Daniel & Rowan protect their rule as the “Planet’s Tag Team Champions?” Or will it be a new day for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles?
Find out at Extreme Rules, streaming live Sunday, July 14, at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.
