new day wwe celebs call out emmy consideration event

New Day called out a bunch of celebrities in celebration of WWE winning an Emmy on Wednesday night … only problem, the awards show isn’t until September.

WWE held a Television Academy event on Wednesday to show off their product to voters, as this year the company is submitting themselves for an Emmy award and nominations ballots go live next week.

Much to the excitement of the audience, the popular trio kicked off the event with some jokes.  Before leaving the stage, Xavier Woods and Big E began to joke as if WWE had already won the award. This led to the wrestlers calling out celebrities Mandy Patinkin, Sterling K. Brown and Donald Glover.

Kofi Kingston eventually hit them with some unfortunate news though, which can be seen below. 

In addition to New Day, the event also featured panels moderated by Stephanie McMahon with:

  • Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Charlotte Flair and Roman Reigns
  • Braun Strowman, Alexa Bliss, Jimmy Uso and Naomi
  • Ronda Rousey, The Bella Twins, Sasha Banks and Nia Jax

Plus, The Rock filmed a video message from the set of the Jungle Cruise movie praising WWE.
