Kofi Kingston On People Saying New Day Should Break Up


There are a lot of people who think that The New Day has been together long enough and the trio should break up and go their separate ways now.

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Kofi Kingston talked about these comments from their fans among other things. Below are some highlights from the interview:

Being able to work with the Elite at an E3 Show recently:

I’m still baffled that that actually happened. Think about WWE, when was the last time you saw them do any kind of inter-promotional stuff? Not in this era, right? On top of that, with a group like Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks, The Elite, these guys are at the top of the independent scene right now. Since we became a trio, everyone’s been talking about us doing stuff with The Elite. And we came close. We actually got in there, interacted, verbally jousting, and I still get goosebumps just thinking about it. Hopefully, that opens the doors for some things in the future.

People saying the New Day should go their separate ways:

All of us want to be top-tier singles champions. That’s the goal all the time. Now a lot of people think you have to break up to do that. We’re told, ‘You know, you have to go your separate ways.’ I think that’s the dumbest thing in the world. Why would we ever break up? We are stronger as three than we are as one. There is no need for us to break up.

How they could be singles champions while remaining in a group:

We always talk about having the ‘Freebird Rule,’ or now the ‘New Day Rule,’ as singles champions or even with the Money in the Bank briefcase. That would be awesome, too. We bring a different element and aspect to the potential of what a singles championship run could possibly be. Our bread and butter is in our chemistry. We’ve all done singles careers on our own, and it’s a crapshoot whether you’ll go up or go down. You never know. But we feel like we have something very special between the three of us, so there is no need to go back to doing what we were doing.
