The New Day Faction — comprised of Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods — made their in-ring debut on WWE TV in a match taped for this week’s Smackdown on Tuesday night in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
As Brooks covered here in our Smackdown spoilers, The New Day went over the trio of Heath Slater, Titus O’Neil & Curtis Axel.
Plans for The New Day have been off and on since July. They were first teased in a backstage segment on the July 28, 2014 episode of Raw but later dropped. A month later, they were put back together on WWE live events. They are set for next week’s Raw following a series of vignettes to promote the group.
We’re told the faction is the brainchild of Vince McMahon.
