Over the past year or so, The New Day have revolutionized themselves as heels and have become one of the most popular groups in the WWE. The first few months of the gimmick, they received a lot of negative reactions, but since turning heel, the team has been highly praised by several fans and critics.
The group consisting of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston, and Big E have received numerous awards including the Pro Wrestling Illustrated award for Tag Team of the Year and being recognized as the Best Gimmick of the year by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Now, along with possibly walking into WrestleMania 32 as WWE Tag Team Champions, the group could also be given their very own special entrance.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has reported, according to NoDQ: "that one of WWE's ideas for a "big entrance" for the group at WrestleMania 32 is to have them fly around the stadium on "unicorns." There was no mention of how WWE would achieve that effect, and Meltzer reports that there's less than a 50% chance of it happening."
This comes at no surprise due to their overwhelming rise in popularity over the past year. After all, some of their props, such as The New Day Unicorn, have sold out on the WWE online shop several times.
Big E has also said recently that there are plans for The New Day to receive a special entrance, but there is still a chance it could be called off.
He said, according to NoDQ: "Woods and Kofi were already telling people to look out for our entrance. So, I suppose our WrestleMania entrance is the big plan. There’s a good chance that it all gets nixed, and people are very disappointed, but we have something cooking.”
There have been several elaborate special WrestleMania entrances in the past including Rusev's at last year's event, John Cena's at WrestleMania XXII, Triple H's at WrestleMania XXVII, The Undertaker's at WrestleMania XXIX, and Shawn Michael's at WrestleMania XII and XXV.
If the WWE does go ahead with The New Day special WrestleMania entrance and it is something to do with flying on a unicorn, while it might be difficult to imagine, you can guarantee on the WWE pulling it off. They've got the history that proves they can deliver when it comes to special and iconic entrances on The Showcase of The Immortals.
The New Day will be hoping to enter WrestleMania 32, special entrance or not, as Tag Team Champions. To do that, they'll have to, at least, win this weekend when they put the titles on the line against League of Nations members Sheamus and King Barrett at Roadblock.
