On the New Day pin, there was this thing called the Outlaws rule.

June 8th 1998 episode of Raw. Sgt. Slaughter, who was still WWE Commissioner at this point, booked a triple threat Tag Team Title match pitting champions The New Age Outlaws (Billy Gunn & Road Dogg) against LOD 2000 (Hawk & Animal) and DOA (Skull and 8-Ball).

one of the DOA tagged Billy Gunn into the match to oppose Road Warrior Animal. Tiring of The Outlaws shenanigans, Animal also tagged out of the match, only he tagged Road Dogg. Partners being tagged into these kinds of matches together was not new; it happened to The Headbangers at WrestleMania 13. On that occasion Mosh and Thrasher just danced around for a bit before tagging out. This time, however, The Outlaws appeared to be stumped until Chyna – who was at ringside with them – whispered something in Road Dogg’s ear. Dogg then re-entered the ring and was told by the referee to engage with Billy and start wrestling. That he did, but in one fluid motion he threw himself to the ground allowing Billy to pin him, who therefore won the match for his team and retained the Tag Team Titles in the process


You beat me to it. I remember it well and enjoy when others still try it
