Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro will once again face The New Day.

WWE has announced that the duo, which is managed by Sami Zayn, battle WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day on this week’s episode of SmackDown. The two had previously responded to an open challenge by the champs, but were defeated by Kofi Kingston & Big E. We’ll see if they can do better this time.

Here’s WWE’s official announcement:

Following a successful title defense at WWE TLC, The New Day will face Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro in a non-title match.

In the first edition of this matchup, the Intercontinental Champion & The Swiss Cyborg answered the champions’ post-Thanksgiving open challenge, but a well-timed Trouble in Paradise carried Kofi Kingston & Big E to the victory. Can Sami Zayn’s stable put The New Day on notice, or will the champions continue their dominance?
