#5 Kofi Kingston breaks character to insult country music
It was 2015 and The New Day were celebrating their one-year anniversary and they were in the midst of their second run as WWE Tag team champions. This was the early stages of what would go on to become the record-breaking 483-day tag title reign.
Since they were in Music City (Nashville) on the night, a great way to get heat was to insult the beloved local country music. The New Day were going on for minutes insulting country music when Kofi Kingston popped the line of the night:
This is me saying this, not my character. Country music suuuuuuuuuuucks!
It definitely took everyone by surprise when Kofi Kingston unsubtly broke character on-air just so he could insult country music. One would have to wonder what the backstage reaction of that could have been.
