The New Day Wins WWE Smackdown Tag Team Titles; Immediately Split Up in Draft

-- The WWE Smackdown tag team titles changed hands last night with New Day members Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston, both of whom returned to TV, defeating Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro. The celebration was short lived though as Stephanie McMahon announced that the new champs were being drafted by Raw but with the next pick, Smackdown chose Big E - effectively ending the group's run as a trio.

-- Interestingly, last month the WrestleVotes account threw out an idea that was being discussed by WWE creative that would have seen Kingston on Raw, Big E on Smackdown and Xavier Woods floating between the two brands as their manager.
