WWE has posted a backstage interview with The New Day following their gauntlet match win on the March 26 edition of SmackDown Live.
The trio was understandably excited, as its indeed a huge moment from a storyline perspective. The New Day has been battling the odds for several weeks now, as Kofi has fought to get a WWE title match with Daniel Bryan on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
But this opportunity came from out of nowhere, when Kofi replaced Mustafa Ali in the Elimination Chamber Match back on February 17. Kingston lost on that night but it lit a fire under his fans that has been raging since then. The WWE Universe rose up in full support of Kofi Kingston and his journey to the industry’s top championship.
One week after nearly winning the gauntlet match on SmackDown, only to be sabotaged by Vince McMahon, Kofi once again found himself with an opportunity. McMahon yet again set up a gauntlet match but this time, it was Big E and Xavier Woods who had to win it all.
But now The New Day is on its way to WrestleMania 35 and the emotion in this video is indeed very real. Kingston is an 11-year veteran and his upcoming Mania match against Bryan will surely be the most important night of his WWE career.
