• Kofi Kingston Almost Quit WWE Before The New Day Storyline

During a recent interview with Ottawa Sun, WWE Champion Kofi Kingston talked about almost quitting WWE before The New Day storyline began.

Below is what Kofi said:

“It’s always fun and laughs. Woods and E, without them I wouldn’t be here. When they approached me about being in The New Day, I didn’t even know if I wanted to keep wrestling because I was doing the same thing over and over.

It became monotonous. Woods and E approached me about getting in this group — guys who weren’t happy with their positions in the company. People told us we sucked, they rejected us. But it wasn’t long before they embraced us.

Now, here we are, in a lot of people’s minds one of the greatest factions of all-time. Here we are, the WWE Champion and the Tag Team Champions — mission accomplished.”
