The backstory

When one thinks of the funniest acts in WWE today, The New Day is bound to be mentioned somewhere at the top. The faction was formed way back in 2014, and has accomplished a lot over the past five years. The New Day has won the SmackDown Live Tag Team titles on four different occasions, and is one of the biggest merchandise movers in WWE.

Earlier this year, Kofi Kingston's amazing performance in a Gauntlet Match gave birth to KofiMania, which kicked off a series of events that led to Kofi becoming WWE Champion at WrestleMania 35, with Xavier Woods and Big E hoisting him up on their shoulders. Fans who watch SmackDown Live on a weekly basis are aware of the hilarious antics Big E pulls off on TV, as well as on Twitter.

Cole almost breaks character

At SummerSlam 2015, The New Day won the WWE Tag Team titles in a Fatal Four-Way Match. The night after on Raw, The Dudley Boyz made their return to WWE and hit a 3D on Xavier Woods through a table. On the following episode of SmackDown, Michael Cole interviewed the trio, addressing their SummerSlam victory and the return of The Dudley Boyz. The segment ended with Big E, Xavier Woods, and Kofi Kingston circling Cole, followed by Kofi and Woods twerking in front of him. As the duo twerked, Big E aggressively yelled at Cole to watch them.

This hilarious bit was too much for Cole, who can be clearly seen trying his absolute best to maintain his composure. Even though Cole tried, the viewers could see him almost breaking into laughter. Check out Cole's epic reaction to The New Day's antics:


The aftermath

It has been four years since this segment aired, and The New Day is still going strong as one of the hottest acts in WWE.
