The New Day Reacts To Kofi Kingston Being Replaced At Fastlane

After watching their friend be unceremoniously replaced by Vince McMahon, New Day members, Xavier Woods and Big E, took to Twitter to voice their disappointment.

Kevin Owens returned last night during SmackDown Live. He was introduced by Vince McMahon as Kofi Kingston’s replacement for WWE’s upcoming Fastlane event as a man “more deserving” of the spot than the New Day member.

The WWE Universe made their frustration known via social media after the announcement. This vocal disappointment was shared by fellow New Day members, Xavier Woods and Big E.

Both expressed their clear exasperation with the decision via Twitter, taking umbrage with Vince McMahon’s ruling.

Xavier, whose current Twitter name is #KofiVsBryan, said:

“So what else does @TrueKofi have to do? He’s a multi-time champion. He’s given 11 amazing years to this company. He’s pinned the @wwe champion. Kofi is more than good enough. Kofi is more than worthy. What else do you want from him? WHAT ELSE?”

His partner, Big E, however, took a more resentful approach, simply writing, “I don’t even know why we’re surprised anymore.”

Despite this turn of events, Owens would eventually tag with Kofi Kingston in the main event of SmackDown. The two would defeat “The New” Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan after Owens hit a Stunner for the victory.

With WrestleMania edging ever closer, are WWE saving Kofi for a high profile title win? Could he finally do it on the “Grandest Stage Of Them All”?
