The New Day comprising of Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods are one the most decorated tag-teams in WWE and they currently perform on Monday Night Raw. The latest edition of the show saw them pay tribute to the legendary tag-team The Outsiders(Kevin Nash and Scott Hall). The two-time WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash noticed and took to Twitter to thank Kofi Kingston for his tribute to him and Scott Hall on Monday Night RAW.
The New Day donned The Outsiders ring gear; Kevin Nash responds
Kingston and Woods donned ring gear similar to the ones worn by The Outsiders (Nash and Hall) at WCW’s Bash at the Beach pay-per-view in 1996. Kevin Nash observed it during the show and he sent out a message to the former WWE Champion
“@TrueKofi Thank you so much for the love tonight. It was amazing to watch that gear in actual motion. Always wondered what it would look like.” Kevin Nash tweeted.
Bash at the Beach 1996 was a huge pay-per-view as it featured the formation of the legendary faction, New World Order (nWo), which was an iconic moment in pro-wrestling history.
Kofi Kingston soon acknowledged Nash’s recent tweet and shared his love and respect for the faction and the legend himself.
“Haha 4 Life! You da man big bro!” Kofi Kingston replied.

The New Day showcased a great performance on RAW
This week’s edition of Raw featured a No.1 contender’s tag team turmoil match for the RAW tag team championships. The New Day was the first team to enter the match. They had a great match against The Viking Raiders and even ended up eliminating them. Woods and Kingston went on to eliminate Jinder Mahal and Veer as and quite interestingly The Lucha House Party, and then Mace and T-Bar.
But, following their elimination, Mace and T-Bar laid a gruesome assault on The New Day and Mansoor and Mustafa Ali, who were next in line for the match. The match was postponed due to the chaos and later in the night, The New Day continued their winning streak by eliminating Ali and Mansoor. However, they were defeated by AJ Styles and Omos, who ultimately lost the championship opportunity as they suffered a loss against WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and MVP.
