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.
