The WWE Champion makes it clear that New Day is together forever.
It has now been a full week since Kofi Kingston defeated Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35 to become WWE Champion for the first time in his career. Coming out of WrestleMania, Kofi has taken on the current Universal Champion Seth Rollins and picked up a win over Sheamus in a tag team match on SmackDown Live. Kingston has had the opportunity to celebrate with his family in the ring and hearing "WWE Champion" followed by his name is still surreal to him as he shared during an interview with TMZ Sports.
“It’s crazy man. It’s still very strange for me to hear that, but it’s the truth. That's the life that we’re living right now and it’s a good life if you ask me.” Kofi smiled.
WWE confirmed that former Intercontinental Champion Big E suffered a torn meniscus and Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet added to WWE's announcement that Big E could be out for up to six weeks. The idea of Big E possibly turning heel on Kofi Kingston has came to the minds of many but Kofi shut that idea down. Kingston stated that New Day is together forever and explained that it will always be them riding things out as a trio.
“I don’t know understand that man. I don’t understand why people say that. We’ve said it since the beginning of time -- the philosophy of the New Day has always been to lift your brother up so that is the goal.” Kofi said. “I think the stereotypical path to take -- you see all these factions and when somebody has success, one of them goes off and does something on their own or someone wants success, one of them goes and does something on their own. That’s very typical. Anything about New Day, if anyone has seen New Day on TV or whatever, everything that we do is atypical. We come out, we skip, clap, I twerk, I wear unicorn horns, we wear pink and blue, we go out there, we throw pancakes out, we like ice cream and we have Booty-O’s. Everything that we do, it’s not your typical story so for us to break up, that would be like doing the opposite of New Day and doing the standard [outcome] and from that aspect alone, it just won’t happen so, everything we do, we do together. Like you saw in our vignettes, we talked about together. Good little callback. Together, together, together. Go back and watch it or maybe not. They are probably not the best thing to watch but the New Day is all about the group and that’s the way it’s going to be.” Kingston explained.
