The New Day dishes on The Revival, possibly facing The Elite, more

Big E and Kofi Kingston of The New Day recently spoke with Sportskeeda about various topics. The New Day briefly feuded with the Revival (Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder) last month after WrestleMania 33. The Revival attacked Kingston on RAW to write Kingston off of WWE television as Kingston had to undergo surgery on his ankle. Shortly after the angle, Wilder ended up getting his jaw broken and now The Revival is off of WWE TV. Kingston and Wilder will return to television in a couple of weeks. During the interview, The New Day was asked about The Revival.

Big E: Despicable. The Revival are very talented. Obviously, Mr. Wilder’s jaw is currently, at the moment, it’s…

Kingston: Incapacitated.

Big E: Right. That’s the word. I think the cool thing about The Revival is that they’re very talented and they are, pretty much what we say in wrestling is – ‘what’s old is new again’. You take and borrow from things no one really does, or works in that style of being a really fluid tag team using the brainbusters. Arn and Tully, that kind of you know, working as a tag team and being on the same page, is very cool. They just have a throwback look and feel that is very unique. So, I’m definitely interested to see how things work for them once they get back on TV because I definitely think there’s place for a tag team like that. That is unique, and different and I think a lot of people, especially like people in the 30s and 40s who grew up watching Arn and Tully are all going – ‘Man, The Revival is bringing back that style and doing something new with it’. You know, borrowing from the past and still making it fresh, so I really dig that. And they’ve had some great, excellent, Match of the Year type candidates in NXT, so I’d like to see them do that on the main roster as well.

Over the years The New Day and The Elite (Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks) have feuded online. They have also teased possibly facing each other one day. With The New Day under contract with WWE and The Elite under contract with both Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling, the match will have to wait until all of the wrestlers are under contract with the same company. When asked about a possible match with The Elite, Big E believes the match will happen.

Big E: Ah, we’ll see. We shall see. The Elite are very talented individuals. And I think it would be a phenomenal matchup. Maybe. One day. Keep dreaming.

Kingston: The thing about it too is that there are a lot of people in the WWE that you thought would never be there. Oh, Kevin Owens would never be here. Then, he’s The Universal Champion, The United States Champion. So many people. AJ Styles. Now here he is. So you never know who’s going to be in WWE.

New Day also discussed introducing The Hardy Boyz at WrestleMania 33 and more. You can read the entire interview here.
