During his appearance on the No Sports Report Podcast, Xavier Woods went into detail on how he’d envision a New Day cinematic match to look. Here’s what he had to say:
When I got to see this Boneyard Match it really touched my soul. But The New Day match, essentially my way of explaining to people that don’t watch wrestling, I say, ‘Hey, remember Lisa Frank back in the day? All those folders with the bright colors and dolphins? Imagine if Lisa Frank just threw up on three black guys. That’s New Day.’ So it’d be something where we’re in this weird, magical, like a rainbow world, but like there’s this weird shadow land area like in the Lion King where like we don’t go there, but when we do, it’s game time. So, uh, lots of sunshine, lots of rainbows, lots of inanimate objects talking to you… It’d be super weird. I like the dissonance between something horrible happening like us just being someone to a pulp with like a nice, children’s music like “Baby Shark” playing in the background.
I would lose my mind [if Lisa Frank actually collaborated], especially if she was like a Wizard of Oz. We just always reported to Lisa Frank and you finally get to see her. She turns around in this wheelchair and it’s like, ‘Oh my God. It’s really her!’ I feel like lots of people try to go out and try to kind of please the masses with like a promo or a thing in a match. And for New Day we try to get like the 0.01% each time we go out. So then, what we’ve been together five years, so that adds up because when you hit like a specific niche that hard, those three people that get that joke, they go “That’s my guy! That’s my group!” No matter what, we rock with them.
