Backstage creative news on The New Day

A couple of weeks ago former WWE Champion Big E appeared on SmackDown teaming with his New Day brethren Kofi Kingston to take on Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss. It was announced that Big E was back on SmackDown for good.

In a now edited YouTube video it was labeled as The New Day but according to Fightful Select Vince McMahon was adamant that the group wasn’t officially back together. The video was then edited to say just Kofi Kingston and Big E.

At one point Vince wanted the trio back together as he missed the magic of New Day but preferred the group to split in the last two drafts as he sees Big E as a top babyface.
