In an interview with The Canton Repository, Kofi Kingston spoke about Vince McMahons original plans for the New Day to be preachers who spread the gospel of positivity and how they can work with whatever he gives them. Here are highlights:

On his chemistry with Xavier Woods and Big E: The stars aligned, and our chemistry is unbelievable. When we go out there, were having genuine fun. Were not just characters going out there acting like it; its actual fun were having, and people feel that energy and want to be a part of it. Weve been traveling together for almost five years now, and weve never gotten into a fight ever. We all have the same interests and same hobbies, and we all want to be the best and at the forefront of sports entertainment in WWE. Were fortunate to be in that position.

On working with Vince McMahon: From the very inception of New Day, we told Vince McMahon no matter what he gave us we would be able to make it work, because we believe in the chemistry we had. Going back and forth with Vince, we had a very different idea of what we wanted it to be. The idea he came back with, we said, OK, hes really gonna test us on this guarantee we gave him of making anything he gave us work. But we just kept doing it, and we evoked a lot of emotion from people, and really, that was what it was all about. Eventually, we kind of got to do what we first wanted, and over time it turned into what it is now.

On where he sees himself in the next decade: Who knows, man. Who knows. Im just trying to do this as long as I can. Im still having a lot of fun. Being with Woods and Big E is definitely the most fun Ive had in my career. I was talking to E about it the other day, and I said, I thought I was having fun the first six years of my career. Then I met the New Day, and I realize what having fun actually means, Kofi said. Its been amazing with these guys. Were always looking for different ways to keep our finger on the pulse of pop culture and implement that in what we say and how we entertain. I cant tell you where the future is gonna go, but I can tell you it will be fun.
