Xavier Woods is Becoming a Video Game Character, How WWE Handled New Day Being Off Smackdown TV This Week


The New Day are all over E3 this week, and today the WWE Superstars came through the crowd throwing pancakes everywhere to kick off the E3 2018 Fortnite Battle Royale. Woods also competed in a Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am tournament, and as noted the trio will be in action this Thursday playing Street Fighter against Kenny Omega and his Elite brothers, the Young Bucks.

While the trio was obviously not on Smackdown Live this week, WWE still kept included them in the show in a minor way heading into Sunday’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view. There was a segment on tonight’s show where The Miz bragged about winning this weekend’s ladder match and pulled down one of the briefcases, only for it to be completely filled with pancakes! They are still teasing the idea that we won’t find out which New Day member is in the ladder match until they come out on Sunday.
