Get you a friendship like The New Day

Kofi Kingston’s push to win a WWE championship before his career comes to a close is a product of a goal he set for himself when he first started out, sure, but it has just as much to do with his best friends, Xavier Woods and Big E, doing everything in their power to ensure it happens. It’s become part of their act, yes, but it’s quite clearly not an act. They really want this, in the way you want the very best for those you love.

That’s what comes across so well in the above video detailing Kingston preparing for Elimination Chamber and his last shot at the WWE title. It’s as much about Woods and E wanting Kofi to win as it is Kingston’s actual desire for it. Woods even goes as far as to say they created The New Day for this express purpose, to right the wrong that is the fact he’s never been the top champion before.

At the end of the video, Kingston closes with this:

“I always try to deliver. Not just for the WWE Universe, not just for my family, but also for E and Woods who have really pushed for this moment, in so many different ways.”

Watching this means wanting Kingston to win, no matter what has to change to make that happen, because his triumph will be the culmination of the passion and drive of the collective. A win for one is a win for all.
