A tag match was announced at WWE’s first day kick-off show – WWE Sports

The kick-off show is set to the first ever WWE Day 1 pay-per-view.

On Thursday morning, WWE announced details about the official pre-show of the first WWE Day 1 special event on New Year’s Day.

The only match scheduled for the WWE Day 1 Kickoff Show is a tag team contest where the Cesaro and Ricochet teams will face the Sheamus and Ridge Holland duo. The following announcement has been released:

Cesaro & Ricochet vs. Sheamus & Ridge Holland

Cesaro and Ricochet bring thunder and lightning to the tag team’s battle with British brutal duo Sheamus and Ridge Holland at the WWE Day 1 kick-off show.

Tensions have increased among all these competitors in recent weeks as the Netherlands won a big one-on-one victory over the Swiss Cyborg in a SmackDown two weeks ago with the help of Sheamus. Things escalated further in the 12-day Christmas Gauntlet Match on Christmas Eve. This time, the Netherlands helped Celtic warriors defeat Cesarro. When the Netherlands tried to help Shamas again in the next part of Gauntlet, this time against Ricoche, the plan was neutralized by Cesarro and the Celtic warrior was excluded from the match.

Ricoche arrives at the receiver of the post-match brogue kick by Seamus. This didn’t seem to slow him down until he faced Sami Zain in the final game of Gauntlet. He and Sesaro are now seeking appropriate retaliation for a powerful tandem from Britain.

Which team will win?

Watch livestreaming at 7pm ET / 4 PMPT on Peacock, WWE Network, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, and Twitch at WWE Day 1 Kickoff on Saturday, January 1, 2022.
