The Vindicator recently interviewed WWE tag team champion and New Day member Kofi Kingston. Kofi discussed New Day’s chemistry, the team’s success, and more. Below are some highlights.
His thoughts on New Day’s goal: “It’s truly a new day ever since we graced the WWE Universe with our presence. Every time we come out there, you see us being funny, having fun, entertaining people and, of course, preaching the power of positivity. That’s what New Day is all about.”
On how adapting is the key to success: “Absolutely, I think my entire life we’ve always kind of been on the move. We always have to be able to just adapt, not just for this job but in life in general. You never know, no matter what kind of a plan you might have, you don’t know what’s actually going to happen. And if you stick to your plan, even though what’s happening is not what you expected, then you’re probably going to fail. So being able to adapt is my philosophy of life.”
Kingston on New Day’s chemistry: “You can’t write the chemistry we have. Talk about adaptability, when we first came out as New Day we were supposed to be like these three preachers who were preaching positivity and trying to get people to feel good about themselves in this jaded world. But the WWE Universe didn’t like that. They booed us out of the building, and all of a sudden we’re the bad guys. For us, it was a deal where we all knew that if we could get on television together, it didn’t matter the characters people wanted us to play. We didn’t care. We knew that we’d be able to make it work. So us being funny is really just us being us.”
