It appears that the rumors about a New Day push are true. Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston were able to capture the belt from Tyson Kidd and Antonio Cesaro. Of course, Kingston generated some heel heat for the trio by grabbing a handful of trunks to secure the pin fall. They were jeered by the audience because of their new tactics, which means that the booking is working. Natalya and Xavier Woods were heavily involved.

Wrestlemania is basically considered the end of the season for WWE, so the front office likes to bring up some fresh faces from NXT to replenish the roster after the big pay per view. Speculations are already surfacing. A potential name on the chopping block is Big E Langston. He is an underrated performer, but management has already placed the glass ceiling over him, it seems. Not even a recommendation from John Cena was enough to help give him a push.

There are speculations floating around that WWE is doing an about face with the New Day stable and are actually considering a push for the trio. Rumors were started when the official company website published an article where it suggested that management might bring back the Freebird Rule, which would enable Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston to share the tag team championship.

For those of you that are under the assumption that John Cena has or uses a lot of stroke backstage, take a look at Big E Langston. The former pushed really hard for WWE to give the latter a chance in the main event scene. Management gave Langston a brief push, but it was not sustained. Nor did it take him that far up the ladder. He is essentially lost in the shuffle as a filler wrestler now. Cena does not play the political game as much as former stars did.

Rumors are floating around right now that the New Day will be given a featured spot at the Royal Rumble, where Xavier Woods and Big E Langston are expected to be a part of the annual big spot from Kofi Kingston. Management halted the push that the trio was supposed to get, but an exciting spot during the battle royal could help to change all of that. No word yet on what Kingston has planned, but you can be certain that he is already thinking of it.

When the New Day made their debut, WWE reportedly was going to give them a pretty big push, as the tag team division is badly in need of new blood. There were even talks that Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston were going to be carrying championship gold not too long after they showed up together on the scene. Those plans were put on hold because of the rising popularity of Damien Sandow and Miz, whom they now want to keep the belts on.
