WWE has just three weeks to have a hard sell and a strong build to WrestleMania 32 as there were only four matches confirmed as of today. Well, another one has been rumored for quite a while, and the happenings on Monday Night Raw really have set that match up nicely. The League of Nations helped The New Day with their official face turn during a match, and it seems like the WWE Tag Team Titles will be up for grabs in early April.
At Roadblock on Saturday, The New Day retained their titles by defeating the team of King Barrett and Sheamus. On Raw, the titles were retained again after The New Day took out the team of Rusev and Alberto Del Rio.
That was when it happened as recapped by WWE.com.
While the match belonged to The New Day team of Big E and Xavier Woods, it didn’t seem to matter that they retained their titles again. Once the bell had rung, it was time for Sheamus and King Barrett to get involved and help their partners.
As Michael Cole said during the beat-down of The New Day after the match, it was almost as bad as an actual mugging.
The four members of the League of Nations absolutely demolished the three members of The New Day and left them laying in waste. It was just a matter of having one more man than the others and not being able to stand up against them.
It was the second time in three days that The New Day had faced and defeated the League of Nations, but Fansided said earlier on Monday that it likely wouldn’t be the last. WWE has been building toward a WrestleMania 32 match between these two and it looks to be happening.
Later on Monday Night Raw, it appeared the wheels were truly set in motion for that match.

Now, it isn’t known which two members of the League of Nations will face The New Day for the WWE Tag Titles, but it likely won’t be either of the same teams that just lost.
The New Day have been weird, funny and downright hilarious at times with their antics in and out of the ring. They’ve been as close to babyfaces as you can possibly get, but they still have attacked the fan favorites which kept them as heels.
WWE just couldn’t get the full face turn, but they found a way to do it. The fans simply hate every member of the League of Nations so much that one beatdown by them and it turned Xavier Woods, Big E, and Kofi Kingston into fan favorites.
One has to wonder if The New Day are going to accept the challenge, but it is almost a certainty that they will. It would be good though if there was some kind of stipulation added to the tag match or if The New Day got a fourth member or something.
That leads to another interesting question: How do the members of The New Day not get outnumbered by the League of Nations?
Look for a fourth member to be introduced before WrestleMania 32, or maybe as soon as they accept the match from the League. Maybe they can reconcile with Mark Henry long enough to get some back-up from him.
There are a number of matches that need to be added to the big Pay-Per-View in April, and the WWE Tag Team Title match is a good start. The New Day will take on some combination of stars from the League of Nations, but they will need some help from now and through WrestleMania 32.
