New Day was drafted to different shows in 2020 with Big E. staying on SmackDown while Kingston and Xavier Woods moved to Raw.
In September 2021, Big E. moved to Raw after cashing into the Money in the Bank briefcase on Bobby Lashley and winning the WWE championship. One month later, Kingston and Woods were drafted to SmackDown.
The New Day is now reunited on SmackDown with Big E. being moved back to the brand as stated on this week’s episode.
Big E. and Kofi Kingston are both entered in the Royal Rumble match on Saturday night in St. Louis, Missouri.
