The New Day’s tribute to Jon continued on RAW Talk after RAW went off the air. Below is what Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston said on RAW Talk:
Woods: “If you never got the pleasure of meeting him, he was a fantastic human who did so much for this industry,” Woods said of Lee. “The lives that he touched and the way he made people feel… whether you were a wrestler, whether you worked on the crew, whether you were in catering, whether you were a fan.
He is someone who isn’t just extremely important to me, but extremely important to everyone in this company, and we just really are gonna miss him, a lot. So, we love you, and we wish we could see you.”
Kingston: “You’ve seen all the posts online on social media – he was an amazing father, it was one of the most admirable traits about him. We had so many stories back and forth about our kids because they’re kind of cut from the same cloth, we got a couple of wild boys. You know?
So every WrestleMania they would always get together, they called themselves The New Day Kids, you know, and they just… it was just an amazing feeling to share that bond with him.
You know, like you said, we’ve been seeing all the posts on social media and just see how many lives he touched in the business, in the ring, but more importantly, outside of the ring with all the family stuff. Like Woods said, he’s going to be dearly missed, his presence is going to be missed, and yeah, it’s crazy. It’s crazy.”
Woods: “We just want to make sure everybody takes a second. You know, take a second, remember him for the man that he was, and the legacy that he leaves. Just keep him in your thoughts.”
