Kofi Kingston participated in a media call today in order to promote tonight’s Smackdown. During the call, he was asked whether which tag team The New Day wanted to face more than any other. Much to everyone’s surprise, the team he named wasn’t one that was currently in the WWE. Here are the highlights. H/T WrestlingInc.
Kofi On How the Trombone Was Added to the Act:
Oh well it was crazy, because we literally… so one day at SummerSlam; I had no idea that Xavier can even play the trombone. We’re talking about making an entrance, and this was the thing happening in Brooklyn, and Woods went, ‘You know what? I can play the trombone!’ And we’re like, ‘Oh!’ And then we ask (WWE), and they were like, ‘Of course you can’. Which is crazy because at one point we were… we kind of had to walk on eggshells, on what we talked about or what we asked about (to the WWE), bringing certain things out, and we would always get denied. And all of a sudden, we were able to bring out a trombone, because, of course yeah it makes sense to have a trombone when out there.
So Francesca was born that night at SummerSlam in Brooklyn, and Woods came out playing, and when Francesca One was destroyed, God rest its soul, Francesca Two was born. And there were many Francescas, and so, we even had an actress who was from Scotland with the bagpipes. So yeah, it was one of those things where it just kind of happened. It was just something that happened.
Kofi On Which Team The New Day Wants to Face the Most:
It would be The Elite. It would be The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega. I think it’s something that from the moment we came out, people were like, ‘Oh, is this going to happen? I mean, The Young Bucks and Kenny, and The New Day, there are three of you’. They are so talented, and they’ve been able to do so many cool things all over the world, especially in Japan, which are… the way they’ve been able to do those cool things. I think it’s kind of a fantasy match-up that people have been waiting with bated breath to see. But, you never know what’s going to happen in the WWE. Never say never, and I hope that it does happen at some point in time, but I guess we will have to wait and find out.
