Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods filmed a backstage interview with Eden on a WWE.com exclusive segment at the July 28, 2014 episode of Monday Night Raw. When discussing what the faction was all about, Kofi told Eden she would know when they wanted her to know. The faction hasn’t been seen together since.
Big E worked this week’s Smackdown taping as an enhancement talent, in which he went under to Rusev with no mention of Kingston or Woods. Highlights of that match are available at this link or embedded in the video below:
