    Raw The New Day - What's Next?



    Ever since losing the tag titles to Cesaro & Sheamus, the New Day seem to be stuck in limbo. After holding the titles for over a year (& adding in that reign before the PTP pointless two month reign), it's understandable that WWE would want to get them away from the tag straps for a bit.

    Problem is they're too popular to not be on TV, but they've not exactly done anything since. The feud with Titus O'Neil was one-sided and filler, and now they're reduced to meaningless segments to hype WM, which they won't actually be competing at, rather hosting.

    So where do you go from here? Turn them heel again? Send them to Smackdown for fresh scenery? Split someone away from the group in the draft? Or buy time until they get some new blood from NXT to feud with?

    Part of me thinks they should at the very least remove someone from the group and send either them or the remaining duo to Smackdown. Big E has a lot of potential as a singles wrestler, especially as the group has allowed him to show off more of his personality than his original run.

    Re: The New Day - What's Next?

    The move to SmackDown seems like a logical one and I assume it'll happen if/when they do the next draft. Their act is terribly stale so at the very least having some new teams to feud with could help that a little. Not sure about splitting them up since their merch sales are so high as a unit and I can't imagine Vince wanting to lose that. I do think that Big E could do well on his own but handling his split from the group would be pretty tricky stuff.

    Big e stepping out as singles with woods and Kofi still teaming would do just fine. They need to change their act up a bit for sure but I don't think a disbanding is completely necessary.

    A program with The Hardys is a distinct possibility

    They definitely need to change up the gimmick. But a feud with the Broken Hardys would be fantastic.

    Re: The New Day - What's Next?

    I don't like the idea of breaking them up into singles competitors. I think the best thing they could do is either change them over to Smackdown and create a new stable for them to feud with.

    The New Day gimmick itself works, they are over, and I don't want them to ever break up really. They could all just retire as The New Day and it'd be perfect.

    For real.

    Have The Revival debut on Raw the night after WM and kill New Day.

    Re: The New Day - What's Next?

    I think that it's highly likely that they will be drafted to Smackdown when they do the draft. I don't think they've become stale as such, it's more that there's nothing for them left to do on Raw. The fact that they've put them in the 'guest host' spot for Wrestlemania is a clear indication that they've run out of ideas as to what to do with them.
    What they do with them between Mania and the draft is a puzzle though. Perhaps having one of them going on a short singles run chasing the US title could be the answer?

    Keep them together, but push one towards a singles title while the other two act as his supporting buddies. Then when Kofi wins the Universal title for example, they defend it under freebird rules.

    This should eventually culminate in Woods winning the Cruiserweight Title, and Big E defending it for him under said rules.

    Maybe the end of something great.
    Maybe the start of something new.
    Stay tuned.

    Re: The New Day - What's Next?

    As much as I hate The New Day, they are an over tag team. It's just that on RAW, everything sucks. Their booking has been particularly horrific. I used to think that splitting them up was the way to go to "fix" them, but to be honest this is probably the most over any of the members of New Day will ever be. Why end that?

    Also, why split up a genuinely solid tag team? I was kind of hoping that WWE was drifting in the direction of keeping real "teams" together for their entire careers (like I imagine American Alpha or The Usos will). I don't really like that teams always break up to get single stars. The New Day has actually made a team that is actually over.

    Re: The New Day - What's Next?

    Yeah going to Smackdown for New Day would help them greatly to feud with new teams, bring up Arrival and maybe move Ryder/Rhino to Raw. Right now they are a bunch of Mouses going around a Maze with no Exit, they need the change. The Draft everyone keeps talking could be coming sooner rather than later, wouldn't be shocked to see it a Month after WM.

    No need to break them up just because the WWE can't come up with platinum material for them every week. Just move them to a different show, or take a bunch of underutilized wrestlers, create a new stable and have them feud with The New Day.

    Feud with the Hardys and then move them to Smackdown. Give them a run with the SD tag titles. Turn Xavier heel, have them feud among eachother for the IC title, then move Big E back to Raw.

    That would ruin their careers.

    Kofi and Big E's careers were basically in limbo before they started The New Day.

    Re: The New Day - What's Next?

    And where was HBK's career BEFORE The Rockers and then after? Where was HHH's career BEFORE DX and then after? Where was The Rocks career BEFORE The Nation and then after?

    Assuming that they are going to go back to where they left off before becoming massively over is dumb.
