This is where Kingston opened up on where his mindset was before being pitched about the creation of The New Day. The top champion on the SmackDown Live brand admitted that without Xavier Woods and Big E, he wouldn’t be in the WWE.
“It’s always fun and laughs. Woods and E, without them I wouldn’t be here. When they approached me about being in the New Day, I didn’t even know if I wanted to keep wrestling because I was doing the same thing over and over.”
Kingston would reflect on how he was putting on good matches with some cool moves but would most likely lose at the time.
“It became monotonous. Woods and E approached me about getting in this group — guys who weren’t happy with their positions in the company. People told us we sucked, they rejected us. But it wasn’t long before they embraced us. Now, here we are, in a lot of people’s minds one of the greatest factions of all-time. Here we are, the WWE champion and the tag team champions — mission accomplished.”
The SummerSlam pay-per-view event takes place on Sunday, August 11, 2019 in Toronto, Ontario at the Scotiabank Arena. Kingston defends his title against Randy Orton.
