Over the past few months, with the WWE going through a difficult period due to injuries and ill-fated storylines, The New Day has been one of the few bright spots in the company.

The Tag Team Champions are consistently the most fun thing about RAW broadcasts and, as a trio, Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods have become some of the most popular Superstars on the main roster.

However, things could be about to take a dramatic turn in the not too distant future, according to backstage reports today.

As reported by DailyWrestlingNews, citing talk amongst the WWE's decision makers behind the scenes, the company could be about to split up The New Day and hand one of the trio a big singles push.

Apparently spurred on by a feeling that the WWE Universe is beginning to lose a little bit of interest in 'The Unicorns', creative are thinking about using the upcoming WWE Draft to hand Big E an opportunity as a singles competitor once again.

Those who tuned in to watch last night's July 4th episode of RAW will have seen the seeds of a split planted during a promo involving The Wyatt Family.

There, though, it was Woods who brought up the possibility of a split over fears that his compatriots weren't taking the threat of Bray Wyatt seriously enough.

The majority of fans watching on will have been hoping the segment was simply a way for the WWE to build the rivalry between the two tag teams.

However, it now looks like the end of The New Day could be a very real possibility, and also a very big mistake.

Having Big E go out alone when the brand split on July 18 would be a risky manoeuvre from WWE creative and the rumours concerning the stable's future are sure to cause a lot of debate in the coming weeks.

While their popularity may not be quite what it once was, The New Day remain well and truly over with fans. Splitting them up before their time has come just seems like an unnecessary move that will anger fans at a time WWE are hoping for increased viewership.
