The New Day retained the SmackDown Tag Team Titles at WWE TLC. After their big win they were plenty happy, but they were also feeling the aftershock from their brutal ladder match.
After kicking off TLC with a ladder match win, Kofi Kingston said that they are familiar with The Revival. The ladder in their match was very symbolic for them as well.
“Look, we knew that it was going to be a brutal contest. It’s a ladder match. The Revival — we’ve been going at it. But, the difference today is that ladder represented a mountain to climb an iron mountain to climb just to prove who was the best. Who bled for it. You see it right there, you see it right there. That’s what it’s all about.”
“You gotta tip the hat to The Revival, man. They are an amazing tag team. They’ve been doing it for a very long time and they are very talented. Tonight was a true test. We always want to go up against the best competition no matter what and The Revival brought their all tonight.”
Big E said they needed tough opponents to be the best they could be because “iron sharpens iron.” They wanted to elevate the tag team division. E said that he’ll probably be feeling the pains tomorrow, but they were certainly able to prove something at WWE TLC.
