– Yesterday The New Day became the longest reigning WWE tag team champions in history by breaking the 331 title reign set by Paul London and Brian Kendrick. If you combine title reigns, The New Day are way ahead at 382 days and counting, while London & Kendrick are at second with 331 days for their only run with the titles.
It should be noted that the record is for the WWE Tag Team Championship, which was established for the SmackDown! brand in 2002 before being unified with the World Tag Team Championship in 2009. The World Tag Team Championship dates back to 1971 and the record that title sits at 698 combined days for Demolition’s three reigns.
– Former WWE World Champion Kevin Nash recently appeared on Vince Russo’s podcast on Podcast One. During the interview, he discussed a potential WWE return.
“People always say would you ever come back to wrestling and I say to myself I’d come back and be [Dolph] Ziggler’s Diesel because that’s all he needs,” Nash said (h/t to Wrestling Inc. reader BAH GAWD for the transcription). “Number one, he’s not a face. Ziggler is a heel and I wouldn’t have to say a word because he can talk. I’ve already had mine. But for the bigger guys, he needs somebody to stomp them. He does the same thing Shawn [Michaels] did. He takes every bump in the world. He takes every beating from the guys and then usually they beat him. But to me, his in ring performance is as good as anybody’s in the business right now. He works so hard.
“I’d like to teach him the little things that Shawn learned. Yeah, he can fly back on every bump but every third one is kind of nice to take a punch and bounce off the ropes. I mean, the ropes are there for a reason.”
He later said that the only two things on earth” that he would return to wrestling are for the opportunity to manage Ziggler or to form a new NWO stable.
