WWE Superstar Kofi Kingston recently spoke to the The Canton Repository. The New Day member stated that the group worked so well due to their incredible chemistry. Kofi stated that he has not argued with Big E or Xavier Woods since their formation nearly 5 years ago.
“The stars aligned, and our chemistry is unbelievable. When we go out there, we’re having genuine fun. We’re not just characters going out there acting like it; it’s actual fun we’re having, and people feel that energy and want to be a part of it,” Kofi commented. “We’ve been traveling together for almost five years now, and we’ve never gotten into a fight ever. We all have the same interests and same hobbies, and we all want to be the best and at the forefront of sports entertainment in WWE. We’re fortunate to be in that position.”
Kofi also discussed what Vince McMahon thought of the group and their original positive preacher gimmick. Kingston also described what vision the WWE Chairman had for the three Superstars. “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,” Kofi stated. “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.”
