Following their victory in last night’s tag team gauntlet match, The New Day gathered backstage to share some positivity … and they got emotional in the process.
“This is the epitome of brotherhood,” Kofi began as he thanked his partners for their valiant performance. “I had the utmost faith in you. As soon as Vince gave that stipulation, I knew! I knew y’all were gonna come through.”
Xavier then took the mic and told Kofi that there was no reason for him to thank them. “You would’ve done the exact same thing for us if the roles were reversed,” he said. “When we came together, this is what we came together for,” he added before handing the mic to Big E.
E talked about how the trio came together, “Just three guys legit trying to get on TV,” he said, adding that he thinks about that often to keep things in perspective.
The three friends each fought back tears as they talked about how far they’ve come.
“It’s incredible, man. Like I said, there’s just so many emotions,” Kofi said. “We’re one day closer. We’re going to ‘Mania.”
