Kofi Kingston and Johnny Gargano got another year old yesterday. Their current and former tag team partners crafted messages to commemorate the occasion. The one Big E and Xavier Woods put together for New Day’s old head is a little different than the one Tommaso Ciampa came up with for his former roommate, though.
We’ll start with the less joyous one. The NXT Champ’s video still popped me, though - either because I enjoy the Blackheart calling disrespectfully calling his rival’s “boy” or he seems to be promising to actually end Gargano’s life on Sat., Aug. 18 at TakeOver: Brooklyn 4. I can’t decide which:
If you have to go out, at least you got to spend one of your last days with a loving wife who bought you a bunch of toys, I guess.
Anyway... Ciampa’s is more useful in kayfabe, but New Day’s wins for sheer joy (as usual). Woods and E ribbing Kofi with stories of when they met him at WWE signings as children is fantastic throughout. It also includes this all-time quote from Large Epsilon:
“I was actually wearing this shirt, it said ‘The Bosshoss’ and it had two Pegasus on it - two Pegases? Whatever the plural of Pegasus is. Two Pegasuses.
And he [Kingston] actually said, ‘Man, that’s a dope shirt. I like Pegasuses-es too.’ So it’s cool, we were able to bond over whatever the multiple of Pegasus is.”
I’m getting sensitive about my age, but I still know who I would you rather have wish me a happy birthday.
