WWE Rumor Roundup: AEW want former SmackDown champion, RAW Superstar turns babyface and more – 9th November 2019
Vince McMahon's reaction after Kofi was squashed by Lesnar
Kofimania ended on WWE SmackDown's premiere on the FOX Network, to the astonishment of most fans. While the result was anticipated, the way the fight ended was what shocked the fans.
We definitely had some words. It was positive because it was very special for both of us. You saw the documentary when I came through gorilla after winning, he had tears in his eyes and we’re all hugging, myself, Woods and [Big] E. Because, it’s been a wild ride, man. Vince has been on the ride with us and he was actually one of the only people to support the New Day when we were first coming up. Granted, we didn’t want to be three preachers [laughs], but he was the one that actually gave us a chance to go out there and be a unit. So it’s been a journey and a journey for all of us.
The former WWE Champion is now the SmackDown tag-team champion after he, along with Big E, defeated The Revival at the Manchester taping last night.
