Kofi Kingston was recently interviewed by the New York Post. The current WWE NXT Tag Team Champion spoke about Xavier Woods’ injury, and his reaction to Vince McMahon’s WWE return.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
Shawn Michaels personally requesting New Day in NXT: “Shawn Michaels was my guy, so anything he asks me to do I’m gonna do it. It was an honor to be asked, to be summoned by Shawn Michaels to NXT because he’s Shawn Michaels, but it’s always something we wanted to do. We always wanted to go down there and mix it up with Pretty Deadly.”
Xavier Woods’ status: “[He’s] getting better and better every week. We are able to progress our storyline and let him rest and recover. He’ll be good in no time. He’s made a lot of progress already.”
His reaction to Vince McMahon’s return: “It’s great that Vince is back. Obviously when he left, there was a huge void, especially for me. Ever since I’ve been on the roster, WWE without Vince was unconscionable. When he stepped down, it was like ‘Oh my goodness, I can’t believe this is happening. Is this actually really real?’ But also it was great to have a bit of a change with Triple H at the helm, being able to do things in the way that he did and Stephanie and [CEO] Nick Khan. It’s always good in WWE to have change. Now that Vince is back, it’s change again.”
The New Day are scheduled to defend their NXT Tag Team Championships at the upcoming Vengeance Day pay-per-view event on February 4th. They will defend in a triple threat match against Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) and Pretty Deadly (Elton Prince & Kit Wilson).
