The Miz & John Morrison def. The New Day to capture the SmackDown Tag Team Titles
RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA — There are winners, and there are losers, and The Miz & John Morrison made sure they fell into the former category at WWE Super ShowDown by any means necessary, toppling The New Day to become the new SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
Kofi Kingston & Big E looked as though they might make short work of their opponents with a fast start until Miz & Morrison leveraged underhanded tactics to seize the advantage. Similar methods proved to be the decisive factor as well.
With the referee still on the mat from counting a near-fall against Miz, Morrison opportunistically struck Kingston in the back with a steel chair, leaving him a sitting duck to be rolled up by Miz for the pinfall. And like that, the Dirt Sheet duo had claimed their third WWE tag title reign and first in 11 years.
Through deceit or not, there’s a new duo atop the SmackDown tag team division — be jealous.
