New champions crowned, The New Day officially separated during WWE Draft



As noted earlier, Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston returned to WWE Friday Night SmackDown to reunite with Big E as The New Day was back to full strength.

Stephanie McMahon announced that The New Day (Kingston and Woods) would get a shot at Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura's SmackDown Tag Team Championship during the Draft edition of SmackDown. As it turned out, this would be the last time that WWE fans would see all three members of The New Day on SmackDown.

Woods and Kingston won the SmackDown Tag Team Titles after Nakamura took a Trouble in Paradise from Kingston and a diving elbow from Woods. Big E went out to celebrate with them after the match.
