The New Day sign deals to stay together in WWE

Kofi Kingston had recently confirmed on Feel The Power podcast that he signed a new contract extension with WWE and now the company has announced that all three members of the New Day have done the same.

The promotion announced on their website that the trio of Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and Big E have all agreed to ‘matching multi-year’ contract extensions:

“Kofi Kingston, Big E & Xavier Woods solidified a pact of identical length and compensation on their contracts to maintain equal status among the team.”

While the release did not confirm the length of their new deals, Kingston had said that he has signed a new 5 years long contract with the company.

So contracts of matching length will mean that all three members of New Day will be staying with the company at least until 2024.

Out of these three, Xavier Woods is recovering from an Achilles injury. There is no solid timetable for his return but it’s said that Woods can stay out of action for 6 months to a year depending on his recovery process.

On the other hand, both Kofi Kingston and Big E are currently holding the SmackDown Tag Team Championships and they are announced for a match against Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live.
