WWE Superstars go through a lot when getting called up to the main roster from NXT. There is also a time when those Superstars are getting checks from both rosters.
During The New Day: Feel The Power, Xavier Woods explained how he started riding with Big E and Kofi Kingston. He was “double dipping” in NXT so he had a free rental car. This helped him quickly make friends on the main roster.
“Okay, so we started riding together when I was still on my NXT contract, well, I was ‘double dipping’ — you know me. The way things work when you get called up to the main roster you have your NXT contract so we call that ‘double dipping’ when you’re still making money from both places.”
“So you essentially get your cars paid for and your hotels paid for. So, before that goes away you try to find some friends you can ride with and we had started all the New Day stuff and that’s when I asked Kofi and E, ‘Hey you guys wanna ride in my free car with me in hopes that later when we all rent a car we can still ride together? Yeah.'”
Big E admitted that “we used you.” Kofi Kingston joked about there being a lot of using going on. Then Woods admitted that “I used y’all to make sure I didn’t get fired.”
The New Day are still together over five years later. You never know if that would still be the case if Xavier Woods hadn’t offered Big E and Kofi Kingston a free ride.
