New Day On Gear, Brodie Lee, Hosting WrestleMania 33


Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods of the New Day joined the newest episode of WWE’s The Bump.  While discussing their current Mortal Kombat impressed gear, Woods delved into their philosophy concerning wrestling gear.

“It is solely for us,” Woods stated. “But we all know if we do one thing for ourselves, we’re doing it for our folks. The folks we discuss to, the folks that dwell in these realms that we play in. When we had been children we might see issues on the display screen watching WWE and go ‘this is so cool. This is so fun. But what would I do in the same position?’

“So now that we’re in that place, we get to do precisely what we wish to do. And all the youngsters which have that thought, they go ‘these are our guys because they’re doing what I wish to do. They’re sporting what I wish to put on, wrestling how I wish to wrestle. They’re making the references I wish to make.’


“So that’s what it is. We’re not your granddaddy’s wrestlers, you know what I’m saying? We get in there, we hit hard, but we’re going to entertain you first. First and foremost though, we’re going to entertain ourselves.”

The subject then turned to the late Brodie Lee (aka Luke Harper), a detailed good friend of Kingston and Woods. They mentioned his affect and their tributes to him.

“We were all very close to Harper,” Kofi stated. “It’s nonetheless arduous to consider he’s gone. But the factor we are able to do in his honor is simply to honor his identify, honor his legacy, and the influence he had.

“We dwell a really distinctive life-style and it’s very troublesome at occasions. To have somebody within the locker room like Luke Harper, it helped us to get by means of these troublesome occasions and switch it into nice occasions. Just having his presence there.

“He impacted so many people in so many positive ways. So the least we can do is honor his legacy, honor his name in any way we can. And let the world know just how special and how amazing of a person he was.”

Kingston and Xavier had been then requested about internet hosting WrestleMania 33 again in 2017. The duo talked about how they and Big E embraced the concept.

“Minutes are money. People will tell you that constantly,” Woods stated. “So the truth that we acquired to host WrestleMania.  I imply on one hand its absurd inside itself. It’s not one thing you develop up as a child saying ‘oh I want to host WrestleMania.’ It’s not on the bingo card.


“But once we acquired provided the spot it was like, in fact. It wasn’t an everyday factor on the time so had been like on this bizarre tryout interval of seeing if it labored for expertise to host WrestleMania. So the truth that we not solely acquired to do this however have the primary second of WrestleMania that 12 months, in Final Fantasy 14 gear, it meant lots to me.

“You don’t plan for something like that,” Kingston added. “There had been lots of people upset they wouldn’t get to see us on WrestleMania wrestling in a match. Like actually upset.

“We appreciated the fervour however it was like ‘hold on a minute.’ There’s solely a handful of people that have hosted WrestleMania. So the truth that we had been trusted sufficient to go on the market and maintain that position was unimaginable.

“And then to ship on high of that; to carry the Hardy’s again. To be in Final Fantasy gear. As a child in the event you had informed whereas I used to be taking part in Final Fantasy in center faculty, that at some point you’d be sporting Final Fantasy gear? Hosting WrestleMania and bringing out the Hardys?

“I’d have looked at you and asked ‘what are you on right now?’ But you look back on it and it’s like, we did that! So it was an honor to be able to do that, just so cool”
