They’re two-time Tag Team Champions, have the longest title reign in WWE history which lasted 483 days, and are one of the most athletic and charismatic professional wrestling stable in the roster. If that doesn’t get you excited about The New Day visiting the country, what will.

Being hosted by Sony Pictures Networks India (SPN) and WWE, two-thirds of the tag team will be coming to India for a three-day tour from May 10 to May 12. And, if you love WWE as much as you love cricket (though, cricket trumps all in India), you’re in for a double treat. The duo, Kofi Kingston and Big E, will not only be meeting WWE fans but also make an appearance on the IPL analysis show Extraaa Innings T20 on 10th May at 7 PM during the pre-show for the Gujrat Lions vs. Delhi Daredevils match.

The wrestlers also seem very excited about the visit. They both posted posters announcing their tour in India. Here, have a look:

“Indians are passionate about great sports and entertainment, from the thrilling, non-stop action of the Indian Premier League, to the dramatic storytelling and elaborate productions of Bollywood movies. We are sure that The New Day will experience the essence of Indian culture during this visit,” says Sheetesh Srivastava, vice president and general manager, WWE India.

The New Day is set to return to the ring on SmackDown post their promotional tour, but for now, all eyes are set on the duo and what their reaction to being on a cricket show will be.

Excited much? Leave a shout out for the duo here.
