When will New Day break up?
It's a question that comes with being part of a tag team or stable. It's a question the trio of Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods are often asked. And while all three have been adamant that they don't want to split, there have been ideas to potentially break them up in the past.
"We've heard rumors in the past and had a conversation with a very important person who said, 'Alright, this is the idea.' But we've been adamant about [not breaking up]," said Big E on the My Mom's Basement podcast. "I get why fans want a breakup. It's something new. But if you look at the history of breakups, tell me one, besides The Shield -- they were always designed to break into individual stars -- I can't think of a single break up that benefited all members. Rusev Day was so hot, getting great reactions on a nightly basis. They break up, Aiden turns on Rusev, and then Aiden is off TV two or three weeks later. I don't even think they had a big pay-per-view match. I don't think Rusev's career benefited from it either. The same thing about the Wyatt's. The chances that all three of us would break up and have great runs, I find it to be very slim. Also, we're having so much fun as a group. If you break us up, I'm going to go back to being serious? I'm going to turn on Kofi and now, what kind of dynamic do we have? I don't see a feasible way to do it. We've only scratched the surface on what we can do. It's a lazy fix to break us up."
New Day are the current WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions with Big E & Kofi holding the titles while Xavier remains sidelined with an Achilles injury.
