During a recent interview with Metro UK, WWE Superstar Kofi Kingston commented on The New Day’s desire to turn heel, Vince McMahon not allowing it, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On how much New Day fantasizes about being bad guys: “To be honest, we fantasize about it all the time. I tell people that I had the most fun in my career when I was yelling at children, and threatening to ground children, and threatening children.
I used to love just doing out there and antagonizing children. They will always remember that moment of when, ‘I cheered for this guy against The New Day, he threatened to ground me but my guy beat him.’”
I love that dynamic, it’s so much fun and we think about it all the time, but these people won’t stop cheering for us. These people like their pancakes and their Booty-Os too much.”
On why he doesn’t think Vince McMahon would go for a heel turn: “You have to be able to provide the evidence, you have to be able to make your case. ‘OK, why do you wanna change what’s working so well for me and making me so much money?’ ‘Oh, we just wanna yell at kids, Vince!’
No, he’s not gonna let us do it! So, it’s a fantasy but I dunno… I don’t think it’ll ever happen again, unfortunately.”
