In the past two weeks, John Cena has defended his United States Championship against members of The New Day as part of his open challenge. As The New Day continues to feud with Cena, it’s likely that Kofi Kingston will be on deck to challenge Cena in the near future.
With The New Day currently feuding with Cena, there’s a chance that they will be credited with (kayfabe) injuring Cena prior to him leaving. This would be a huge boost for the stable, which has caught fire through its use of infectious comedy. It’s fair to wonder whether The New Day is better served as a novelty stable, which would make them difficult to take seriously in the main event. But using Cena as a pawn to continue put The New Day over will alleviate all those concerns.
