Greatest” – Wrestling world reacts to The Usos beating The New Day on WWE SmackDown to create new historic record
This week’s episode of WWE SmackDown saw The Usos defending their Undisputed Tag Team Championship against The New Day to become the longest-reigning tag-team champions of all time.
Had Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston won, they would have retained their record of 483 days. However, Jimmy & Jey beat their rivals in an action-packed match and retained their championship while creating a new record for the longest-reigning tag champs.
During the show, the Bloodline members were visibly annoyed with the crowd chanting for Sami Zayn as the latter was absent due to personal reasons. However, it was not enough to faze them.
Jimmy and Jey picked up a pinfall victory after they put Kingston down with the 1D. Since there will be no title matches between Friday and Monday Night RAW, the brothers will become the longest-reigning tag team champions in the company’s history.
With The Usos breaking The New Day’s record, WWE Superstars and fans alike took to Twitter to react. There were many congratulatory messages directed towards the champions and some words of encouragement for Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston.

481 days. The Usos have smashed the record and have become the longest reigning tag champs. What a match. #SmackDown
Pro wrestling doesn’t have to be complicated.
Respect the fans will understand the story, and deliver.
tell the right story. Perfect. The last 10 minutes of that was GREAT. Uso’s own the longest reigning tag team title record #SmackDown
The Usos RETAIN and will now be the longest-reigning WWE Tag Team Champions, breaking The New Day’s record. #Samckdown
Great match. Now you’ve got Roman AND The Usos on record runs. Who ends them?
Surpassing 483 days is no easy feat. With The Bloodline’s increasing dominance on the main roster, it can be safely said that The Usos’ record could remain intact for a long time.
