The New Day Reveal Scrapped Segment During Kofi Kingston's WWE WrestleMania 35 Storyline

Another one involving Vince McMahon...

This time last year, Kofi Kingston was starting his climb towards winning the WWE Championship from Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35.

On the most recent episode of New Day's podcast, Feel The Power, Big E explained a planned segment that was scrapped by WWE in the build-up to last year's Grandest Stage Of Them All: "The original plan was that you and I were supposed to go backstage ripping things up on a tear we go to his office. We go to [Vince’s] office and we knock on his door and either he doesn’t answer or he opens the door and says, ‘Oh I don’t have time for you’ or something like that. The plan legitimately and I was so excited for this was that we kick in the door. We tear his office up.

"Legit throw things over. I think he’s in the office in the corner. We’re throwing tables over and making a mess of his office just going on a rampage and like had this visceral anger about what’s happening to Kofi and one of those things that drove the storyline was that [Kofi’s] story so closely paralleled Bryan’s, but to me didn’t feel it was a rip-off or derivative of Bryan’s story at all and, of course the fact that your pitted against Bryan at WrestleMania when that came.

"I think some of the language was interesting that He Who Shall Not Be Named talked about you that you were a B Plus player that you weren’t good enough. It was a lot of thinly veiled when you’ve got 13 years of experience like why exactly aren’t you good enough?"
