The tag-team champions called out Adam Jones at WWE Payback

Tag-team champs call out Adam Jones at WWE Payback

Before Sunday's matinee at Camden Yards, WWE champion Seth Rollins trotted his hardware out onto the field to toss out a ceremonial first pitch for the Orioles.


Rollins also used his appearance as an opportunity to compare accessories with O's outfielder Adam Jones.

But that was only an opening act to prepare everyone for the night's main event at WWE's Payback pay-per-view -- where the tag-team champions called out Jones and the rest of the O's for not winning a World Series in the last 32 years.

Jones and teammates J.J. Hardy and Steve Pearce were ringside at Payback when The New Day -- a stable that entered Sunday's PPV as the tag team titles -- played up their heel status by provoking the crowd by taunting the O's players.

Much to the dismay of Jones and all of the O's fans at WWE Payback, The New Day retained their titles when the referee confused Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston.
