The New Day will return on the August 26 episode of WWE SmackDown.
Erik and Ivar, collectively known as the Viking Raiders, took Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston out with some vicious attacks, and they even held a Viking funeral for the duo last week. But the New Day will be back on Friday night.
The preview, courtesy of WWE’s website, is as follows:
You can’t keep Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods down for long!
The vicious Viking Raiders tried to put The New Day to rest with a “Viking funeral,” but it will take more than a series of brutal beatdowns to keep the 11-time tag team champions from spreading the power of positivity on Friday nights.
What will Kingston and Woods have in store for the blue brand? Find out tonight on SmackDown at 8/7 C on FOX!
WWE also announced a bout between Drew McIntyre and Sami Zayn:
Last week, when Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns met his WWE Clash at the Castle challenger Drew McIntyre face-to-face, The Bloodline were nowhere to be found. The Usos had been unable to get to SmackDown, and Special Counsel Paul Heyman was still recovering from the beating Brock Lesnar gave him at SummerSlam. However, when Reigns and McIntyre began to brawl, Sami Zayn emerged from nowhere to step between The Head of the Table and an earth-shattering Claymore Kick.
What will happen when The Scottish Superstar steps into the ring to go one-on-one with The Master Strategist? Find out tonight at 8/7 C on FOX.
