On last weeks Raw their trailer said they would debut next week on Raw. So much for that....

I'm not keen on the whole happy/positive babyface route but it's early days.

It's still a shame the original idea got dropped so soon for them.

They made their debut on Raw this week, not their WWE debut, but they made their Raw debut.
 
The group could be great, especially if they put their hands up like "Don't shoot!" as they came down to the ring. Seriously, WWE needs the Nation of Domination, not this f@& crap.

I'm not that struck on them at the minute - maybe the more I see them the more I'd like them

I just think they are forcing the "teamwork" element instead of letting it come naturally

3 black jobbers who they have nothing for so group them all together and hope people like them

Seriously, if they wanted to group the black jobbers, they could´ve popped R-Truth into that group as well..

To me, "the new day" already looks like a wasted opportunity. They had the chance to overhaul each of the members of that group, give them meaning, make them matter - to me, they already blew that by jobbing them out on RAW so early. 

(Btw., the more i think of it, Truth in there as the Leader of that group would´ve actually made sense. He´s the veteran, pretty much, he definately can take on the preacher style persona and he´s not doing shit anyways.)

Waste of talent seems exactly right. All three of them deserve more than this.

If they are going to have a new group Debut give them the fucking win....Do I really wanna See The Uso's Lose again? Or would I like to see the Black Freebirds get a shot?

I like them more than I expected, the happy clappy babyface gimmick has got them over at least.

However for them to be anything more than a low-card act which is exactly where all three men were at prior to the formation of this faction they will need to get more serious and perhaps turn heel.

R-Truth would be a very good fit for the group and I'm surprised he wasn't added to begin with, Truth is very underrated on the mic and his personality would work well with this gimmick.

Is pretty comical watching Big E bust some dance moves.

TBH I would like to see what these guys would choose for themselves as gimmicks and in terms of creative. Do they have a very poor understanding of how to get over as characters in the wwe universe? Or are they being held back? Much like R-Truth was when he got turned face.
 
I'm not all that fond of the flippity shit that Kofi always does, but I recognize that he's a guy that can put on some amazing matches and gets over as a result. Big E. I think has a great personality and if he were allowed to speak more he would get over fast and big. I don't know much about Xavier Woods, but he is very good on the mic, despite the fact I haven't seen enough yet to see his personality and what kind of a character he is. IMO it seems like this New Day gimmick is mostly about Woods and fits him best, but I really don't know.

i still dont rate them ....

i dont think the live crowds really know how to react to them neither because its just silence when the music hits

none of them were ever over as singles guys and they havent made any sort of impact to get fan buy in

I'm hoping an heel turn is coming because keeping them together doing the same stale act, but just on another show would be boring.

They could even use Kofi being injured as a reason for the turn, having the other two attack him as the weak link.

They can't be given stupidly drawn out segments still when the show is an hour less.

Agreed. A change of scenery is good but they still need to freshen up their whole act, I would say a heel turn is a good idea as lately their material has been so lame and cheesy some fans do seem to be starting to reject them. Turning heel would allow them to be a bit more edgy.

I would also like to see one of them get a decent singles run, Kofi or Big E.

Kofi used to get pushed big time didnt he, and remember when they changed his caribbean accent to his normal American one. Bit of an own goal that was!

Meltzer is saying that with Kofi out injured, New Day might be off TV for a while. I think that would be a stupid move. New Day had started to act more heel-ish towards the end of their title run, I think that they need to go back to that. A gradual organic heel turn, as they take offense to being over-looked as SDL tag champion contenders. Call out "executive management" for wasting their talents as host of WM33 when they should have been in the main event... or something like that.

Personally, I'd love to see Xavier Woods challenge for the Cruiserweight title (with Big E acting as his heater).

I like the idea of the heel turn done on a slow burn, as faces their act has become stale and cheesy and I also noticed they were showing subtle signs of a heel turn recently.

One thing WWE does need to do is select one member for a singles push, Big E is the obvious choice but then again you could argue Kofi has paid his dues and deserves it.

Is Big E that good do you reckon, apart from his size and strength ? Im not so convinced.

Big E is tremendously talented. He was a really good NXt champion and never really got a true shot at the main titles.

He has the most intangibles out of the three, Kofi has the most talent and Xavier has the most promise.

Ive only known Big E become a star since his tag team push (in the WWF that is). He was a bodyguard to AJ Lee & Dolph Ziggler to begin with wasnt he, which was a very underwhelming role for him.
I remember Kofi as the always impressive high flyer who's career seemed to hit a brick wall all of a sudden when his push ended.
And out of the three, Xavier has surprised me the most because I just used to think he was more comedy material on the mic rather than a genuine in ring player.

Big E has the most qualities they would look for in a top WWE talent, I think the one downside is his look and style is just a bit too comedic, he would have to get serious to move out of the mid-card.

Xavier is great on the mic but they tend to not use him in the ring as much as the other two which makes me think they have doubts about his ring skills. From what I've seen though he's pretty solid in there.

Kofi had pushes in the past and they never succeeded, he had a bit of a reputation for injuring people in matches as well which obviously didn't help.

Disagree with the first part, he's stocky but a shortarse which makes him look weird. Type of guy Heyman could have got over in the ECW days, a la Taz.

Quote This week's broadcast opens up immediately with the New Day coming out to the ring. Tom Phillips welcomes us to the show and says tonight is all about the U.S. Title Tournament. This next match is in the second round of the tournament, and the belt is at ringside. There's a podium in the ring with a flag on it. They step up to the podium and say tonight the USA's freedom is at stake when Xavier takes on Jinder. Xavier says he will defend the power of positivity, and the principle of pancakes. They have a plate of pancakes on the podium, and talk about pancakes representing something that can bring the world together. Xavier says Jinder despises everyone in this arena, and asks the fans if that's the kind of man they want as their U.S. Champion. They try to get a chant going with the crowd, but it doesn't sound like they have much luck. The Singh Brothers come out to the stage to interrupt, and they introduce the Modern Day Maharaja.

- Xavier Woods vs. Jinder Mahal: The Singh Brothers are at ringside in Jinder's corner, and Kofi and Big E are at ringside in Woods' corner. The opening bell sounds and Jinder immediately opens up with a superkick to Woods. Jinder karate chops Woods, then chokes him up against the ropes. Jinder drops some knees on Woods and continues the beat down. Woods fires back with a dropkick and starts to get in the game. Xavier starts gaining momentum, but Jinder shuts him down with a lariat, then drops some knees and stomps on him. The New Day and the Singh Brothers start arguing at ringside as Jinder continues to beat on Xavier. The crowd chants "we want pancakes" as Wood starts hulking up. Woods throws some right hands, but Jinder catches him with a gutbuster, then a knee to the face. Jinder rolls outside and chokes Woods with the ring apron tarp. Jinder rolls back in the ring and Woods follows shortly after at the ref's 9 count. Woods fights his way up to his feet, then Mahal whips him hard into the corner and drops a knee on him. Woods hits a boot to the face then goes for the Honor Roll, but Mahal blocks it with a jumping knee to the face. Woods comes back with a missile dropkick and starts working over Jinder. Jinder hits a cheap shot to the throat, but Woods keeps bringing the fight to Mahal. Woods keeps control and hits a Shining Wizard. The Singh Brothers get on the apron for the distraction, but Big E and Kofi chase them to the back. Woods hits a German suplex on Jinder, then goes up top. Woods misses the elbow drop, and Jinder throws Woods into the bottom rope. The ref checks on Woods, then Jinder picks him up and hits the Khallas for the three count. Jinder advances to the U.S. Title finals next week.

Winner: Jinder Mahal

Could this be leading to the end of The New Day? Xavier was a breath of fresh air to the whole tournament.
 
Woods should now be given more solo outings and the best the other two can be in that respect would be his cheerleaders.
 
If I was pushing any of them as a solo act I would tone down the daftness of the act and make them a little bit more serious.

I think its getting to the point where they need to start to do a bit more with Big E.

He is huge and has great athletic ability for his size, however he is seemingly only really the mouthpiece and the tag along for the new day.

It would have been good for him to have some exposure in the US title thing as opposed to woods as Woods is used more in the tag team matches than Big E

Quote The New Day is out to the ring next. There's a table with plates full of pancakes all over it. They declare that Big E is going to attempt to break a pancake eating record tonight, but Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable interrupt. Gable gets on the mic and sarcastically says this is what he envisioned himself doing back when he was training for the Olympics. Shelton tells The New Day to open up their own pancake restaurant, and leave the SmackDown tag division to some more serious competitors. Xavier says that they are serious competitors, and are the longest reigning Tag Champs ever. Gable and Benjamin start throwing The New Day's pancakes down on the mat one by one, and The New Day gets more mad with each wasted pancake. Big E tells them not to touch their cakes. Gable says he has a news flash for them - nobody likes pancakes. Shelton says they eat waffles, then flips over a plate of pancakes out of Big E's hands. Woods and Kofi hold back Big E, and a ref gets between the teams.

- Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable vs. Big E & Kofi Kingston: Xavier is at ringside watching and throwing out pancakes to fans. The New Day starts off strong, but Gable and Benjamin are able to take control of the match after a boot to the face. Gable starts working over Kofi's shoulder, and then hits a spinning heel kick on Kofi for a two count. Gable pounds on Kofi in the corner, then tags in Shelton. Kofi fights back and throws Gable outside. Kofi dodges a shot from Shelton, then goes to tag Big E, but Gable pulls Big E off the apron. Shelton drops Kofi in the ring, then rolls outside and hits a cheap shot on Xavier for good measure. Shelton taunts the fans, and Kofi capitlizes with a flying stomp on Shelton. Big E and Gable get the tags, and Big E hits some belly to belly overhead suplexes. Gable fires back with a suplex of his own, then tags in Shelton. Gable gets knocked outside, then The New Day double teams Shelton for the three count.

Winners: the New Day

They are usually the most over in a segment, but this time it was when they mentioned pancakes, that the biggest pop happened.
 
They do for faces, sometimes come across like guys in the dying days of WCW who are there just for the money and going through the motions.
 
They are well looked after doing mainly silly segments and a lot of the time one of them getting a rest missing out on two on two contests.

I used to love the New Day but I cannot stand all this pancake and flapjack garbage, I often skip their segments these days. It’s silly and not entertaining.

Their gimmick is beginning to grow a bit stale, I would suggest a heel turn but I think WWE will be reluctant due to their merchandise sales.

Maybe a two thirds heel turn? Kofi & Xavier turning on Big E might lead to a really good singles run for Big E. I'm more than ready to see him move into the US heavyweight title contention. And maybe Xavier and Kofi can evolve into something very different but equally good as heels and get right back into contention for the tag championships.

The New Day are becoming more and more irrelevant because they are being wasted so much.

They had some phenomenal matches with The Uso's and im sure they could manage the same with American Alpha 2.

I'm in agreement that this pancake and flapjack shit needs to stop - one of the most pointless things i have ever seen in wrestling history

I don’t see WWE splitting them, the three guys are clearly having fun and they are making too much money in merchandise.

This pancake and flapjack shite though is among the worst stuff that has ever been part of WWE tv, I have no real interest in the New Day while they are still doing this garbage.

I think they can remain as a group but give either Kofi or Big E a solid singles push.

If the whole group were to turn heel again but old school heel faction not the goofy shit I think I would start liking them again
