The New Day are arguably one of the best things that the WWE has going for it right now. And it looks like the WWE know that.
Who else on the main roster could possibly get away with entering WrestleMania 32 - the biggest event in the wrestling calendar and the biggest WrestleMania in WWE history - inside a giant box of a fake cereal they came up with on the spot.
Speaking in an interview with IGN, New Day member Xavier Woods revealed that the WWE are actually giving them more creative control and that Vince McMahon and co are huge fans of theirs.

Woods, along with Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston, came out of the 20-foot high box of Booty-O's while dressed like characters from Dragon Ball Z, something that has never been done before in the history of the WWE. Xavier had no qualms taking the credit for the DBZ idea.
"That was my idea," he said. "I don’t have have a problem taking credit for that one! But Kofi does like Dragon Ball Z. [Big] E wasn’t really an anime guy...he’s more of a old-school hip-hop head. But we showed him a picture of the stuff that what we wanted to wear, and he was all in."
Apparently, Vince McMahon didn't really have any idea about the costumes. Well, until they walked past gorilla position that is. Thankfully, he liked it.
"Oh, we didn’t see (Vince) until right before we went out. It’s funny, because we’ll always have some kind of harebrained idea, and then he sees it right before we go through the curtain, and just kind of gives a little grin and thumbs up."
We're in a world now where the WWE - with its PG TV rating - could face severe consequences for breaking their parameters or doing something to upset their sponsors and advertisers. Woods says that the WWE are now trusting them and giving them a bit more creative control over what they do and say out in the ring and in promos.
"It's to a point now where we kind of have a little bit more trust than we did when we started," he added. "And they know we're not going to go out there and do something that's going to mess up a sponsorship or anything like that."
