What are Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods currently doing?

Currently, The New Day is preparing for a match against Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander next week. New Day has been feuding with The Hurt Business for a while now.

The situation worsened when Kingston and Woods lost the Raw Tag Team championships to The Hurt Business. They have been trying to recapture their former glory since.

On the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, Xavier Woods took on The Hurt Business’ Shelton Benjamin.

Initially, Benjamin was dominating the math while Kofi Kingston constantly tried to distract him from ringside. However, Woods didn’t take too long to overpower Shelton Benjamin.

Finally, Xavier Woods secured the victory when Kofi Kingston successfully distracted Benjamin.

Previously, Kofi Kingston was a part of the Elimination Chamber match when he replaced The Miz.

The Miz announced that he was going to remove himself from the match and let John Morrison take over. However, Kingston challenged this and said since he is a former Champion, he should get that position.

Adam Pearce solved the problem by putting Kofi Kingston against The Miz to decide who would take The Miz’s spot. If Kingston won, he would take the spot, and if Miz won, then Morrison would.

Since the Superstars had competed against each other previously, this match was exciting. They put up a good performance. Kingston energized the match while Miz tried to keep it grounded. Finally, Kingston defeated The Miz to take his spot in the Elimination Chamber.
