As reported earlier on Wednesday here on eWrestlingNews.com, The New Day is teasing leaving WWE. Big E took to his Twitter account on Wednesday, commenting on “people like us” never being able to “move forward” in WWE. Xavier Woods has now chimed in, posting the following video of himself at GDC and insinuating that it may be best for him to go in a “different direction.” He said,
“We have other things we enjoy doing. We have other skills. Me? I love video games. I’m a part of this community, and I love this community with all of my heart, and this community loves me back. That’s a relationship I’m willing to be in. And considering the fact that I’m attempting to create a small video game studio, that is another skill that I have. That is another way to feed myself and my family that I have. So you fully understand, constantly being treated in the way, that we, New Day, has been treated, and will will most likely be treated from here on out, I just want to say I appreciate what you did, Vince, thank you very much, because it’s definitely shown me which direction I need to go in to take care of myself, and to take care of my family.”

Of course, this could all be a “work” or storyline but that remains to be seen. If the past is an indication, though, this may be far from a work. But it does seem to be a “new day” in WWE lately with creative changes, mid-card talents being pushed more and more, etc.
