As we all know, the New Day are the longest reigning Tag Team champions of all time. They broke the previous record of Demolition, who held the titles for a record 478 days. The New Day were able to hold the title for 483 days and dropped it after earning the big accolade. But the question is, what’s next for the world famous two-time champs?
In a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Live, we got some hints of the upcoming storylines. Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling observer newsletter commented about New Day’s future booking. He hinted that a major change is coming into their persona. The WWE will be turning them into a heel faction in near future.
As pointed by Bryan’s co-host that their heel turn might cost the WWE a big time in terms of merchandise selling. They have a strong fan-base around the world which makes them a favorite merchandise-seller. We have to keep in mind their acceptance around the kids which helps a lot. So turning them heel might affect it.
But Bryan pointed out the fact the faction was a dominant heel when they started their Tag Team championship reign and were still able to garner much attention of the crowd. Plus if they keep acting as babyfaces then there won’t be many opponents for them on Raw.
It is true if they continue to be a face faction then they’ll have to square off against the same heel team like Luke Gallows – Carl Anderson or the Shining Stars. On the other hand, turning them heel will open better options for the creative. This might be a great way to put over Enzo Amore & Big Cass, who are waiting for their chance for the Tag Team titles.
