Vince McMahon’s Original Plan For New Day Revealed, How They Reacted WWE

WWE SmackDown star Kofi Kingston has revealed Vince McMahon’s original plan for New Day and how they reacted in a new interview.

Appearing on the latest Out of Character with Ryan Satin, the former WWE Champion talked about the original idea for New Day prior to their debut as a unit.

Kingston said:

“When we were given the gimmick of positivity preaching preachers, I’ll never forget it. We had been going back and forth with Vince about what we wanted to be. We wanted to be some guys who were not pleased with our positions in the company. He’s like, ‘Okay, well, how about you guys be preachers and you guys come out here and there’s gospel music.’ We’re just sitting there and we (The New Day) know that the people are going to reject this idea because nobody comes to WWE to go to church. But this is what he wanted us to do.”

“We told him, ‘Whatever you give us, we’ll make it succeed because of our chemistry. We believe in it.’ He’s like, ‘Alright, I’m going to put that to the test. You guys are going be positivity preaching preachers. Go get it over.’ We’re just like, alright, this is our chance and we supported each other. There were a lot of people who took a big dump on our aspirations. You know, they didn’t believe in us. They made fun of us when we were just trying to get over. But now you fast forward, and those same people have come back around, and they admitted that they were wrong.”

Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods recently lost to Sheamus and Ridge Holland in a Tables Match on last Friday’s SmackDown.
