Booker T thinks a heel turn is in the future of The New Day

The New Day has been one of the most over acts that the WWE has created in recent memory with them growing into a group that sells a ton of merchandise for the company.

The group that consists of Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods was created in the summer of 2014 and has been a staple of WWE programming since then. From their comedic efforts to their in-ring skills, the WWE fans have gotten behind the group and built them up as a top factions in the history of the WWE.

WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T recently appeared as a guest on the WrestlingINC podcast to talk about various topics including the future of The New day and if the WWE should split them up. In the eyes of the former WWE/WCW World Champion, he thinks that the group should remain together even if in the future they have to turn heel. In fact, The New Day requested to induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame back in 2013. However, Stevie Ray ended up doing the honors.

“Do you know what, man, right now, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That’s the way I look at it. This thing has done great things for all of those guys. Xavier, Kofi was kind of stuck in a rut there. It was still Kofi doing Kofi and Kofi having to go out there and be the ultimate [professional] wrestler with Kofi going out there and having to run, run, run. And be that ultimate babyface. Big E trying to find leverage, but together, it seemed like these guys have gelled quite well together, so for me, I say, ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ If we could run with it for another six months to a year, let’s run with it for another six months or a year because, after that, you may have to do a heel turn. And then, where do we go after that? So I think longevity more than ‘what can we get out of this today?’ I say, ‘what can we get out of this tomorrow?'”
