The show opened without any introduction, and the five time tag team championships, The New Day, made their way to the ring. Xavier Woods said they did what they did best and that was to win the tag team championships. Kofi then said they had the Bludgeon Brothers out like a like. Big E then grabbed a mic, saying they are a FIVE TIME- Cue King Booker T too come out and make his way to the ring! Booker T said he rules the Smackdown World. The New Day bowed down to Booker and granted them to be in the five timers champion club. He asked if they could dig that, sucka. Booker went to leave but the New Day stopped and wanted him to the spin-a-roonie. He took his crown and robe off and did it. He then wanted all three members to do it as well, and they followed suite. 

The Bar then made their way to the ring as they will face off against The Colons and Gallows and Anderson next in a triple threat tag team match. (c)
