It appeared like everything was great in New Day land, with WWE Champion Kofi Kingston, Xavier Forest and honorary member Kevin Owens (or “Big O,” if you like) apparently getting along great … but, clearly, The strength of Positivity could be misleadingly blinding.
WWE Champion Kofi Kingston squared off against Shinsuke Nakamura the very first time ever, as honorary New Day member Owens and Forest provided unique commentary in the New Day’s specialized announce booth, and Rusev and Lana supported Nakamura.
Nakamura tried to put on lower the WWE Champion together with his signature hard-hitting attack, but Kofi fought against back having a string of countless high-impact moves that made an appearance to possess him near victory. Before Kingston could secure a pinfall, however, Rusev leaped around the WWE Champion to result in the disqualification, resulting in an outrageous publish-match brawl.
Owens and Forest partnered to get Rusev, but Nakamura dropped Forest using the Kinshasa. After Kofi removed The King of Strong Style in the ring, Owens shockingly leveled Kofi having a wicked superkick prior to starting a vicious assault. “Big O” chucked Kofi in to the barricade and ring publish, grabbed the WWE Title and started screaming at Kingston he wished the WWE Champion and the kids enjoyed WrestleMania since the title would soon be his.
Kingston tried to fight having a couple of desperation punches, however the damage had recently been done. Owens tried to set Kingston up for that Apron Powerbomb around the fringe of the ring, but Forest interjected and briefly required KO lower. Owens soon got the very best of already weakened Forest, finally taking him by helping cover their a vicious Apron Powerbomb. Forest was lower, Kingston was furious while looking after his brother and Owens had made his statement: It’s a brand new day for KO and also the plans for your day only include winning the WWE Championship.
