Kofi Kingston was ready to make anything work.
Speaking to The Canton Rep, Kofi detailed conversations The New Day had with Vince McMahon prior to the group making it on television.
"From the very inception of New Day, we told Vince McMahon no matter what he gave us we would be able to make it work, because we believe in the chemistry we had,” said Kofi. "Going back and forth with Vince, we had a very different idea of what we wanted it to be. The idea he came back with, we said, ‘OK, he’s really gonna test us on this guarantee we gave him of making anything he gave us work. But we just kept doing it, and we evoked a lot of emotion from people, and really, that was what it was all about. Eventually, we kind of got to do what we first wanted, and over time it turned into what it is now.”
Xavier Woods had similar confidence in the group as he recently revealed that he bet Vince that he could get crowds to boo Kofi within four weeks. If Xavier failed, he was willing to give up his spot in WWE.
Crowds no longer boo New Day as the trio is one of the most popular groups in WWE history.
