If WWE Superstars Were Football Teams...

20. The New Day - Stoke City

WWE.com/ PA

When The New Day first jived their way to ringside in 2014, the groans were more than merely audible. Dreadfully boring to watch and with seemingly no redeeming features, fans just hoped the act would disappear as soon as possible.

But they stuck around. They stuck around so long that eventually, against all odds, they transformed into something dare I say... likeable?

The trio's unexpected turnaround is a mirror image for Stoke City; for many years the Potters were hated, until a secret shift in style marked them out as one of the most watchable teams in the Premier League. And Peter Crouch dances. Regrettably so.

Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, despairing over Middlesbrough FC, and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know). He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
