I don’t know how many years are left on my contract. I never say, ‘I’ll be done in two years.’ We’ve always been in touch with Mark Henry about this since he said he was going to retire for 12 years. ‘I’m going to finish after this year,’ and suddenly he gets out his stuff, ‘Vince (McMahon) told me they needed me, so I signed for five more years.’ Mark, come on man, you’ll never retire! We get him about it. This art is so unique and so fun and for such a short time in our lives, and I know it’s so hard to walk away from it. What a lot of people miss about it, and from being on the roster and from what I’ve been told, they miss the camaraderie in the locker room.
Even now, I see that change happening where myself, Dolph (Ziggler), Miz, Randy (Orton), we’re like elder statesmen. Everyone else went through NXT, the ones I didn’t come up with, so you see that natural change happening, but the camaraderie in the locker room, it’s still there.
Once gone, you never really get it back. I’ve always said, as long as I’m having fun, I don’t want to be the guy who comes to work every day and complains about being there, ‘I’m not happy with a story, I’m bored with it.’ This job is so amazing that you should feel happy about it every day. Obviously, there are ups and downs, we all know, but overall, you shouldn’t come to work and burden yourself with it and you take it home and you’re crazy about what’s going on at work and now the quality is not what your life should be. .”

Coffey also discussed the idea of retirement, which was opposed by Big E and Xavier Woods, leading Kingston to believe that he could work with The New Day in a different capacity after his current contract expired.
“I told them that, and they started coming around, once you get past 30, it’s the same age bracket. Are they younger than me or are we all the same age? They may be older than me. Woods has been working in the industry for a long time. He has like 27 years in the business. He is the true veteran of the team. Am I bigger than him or not? Who is to say? When it’s all said and done, we definitely want to continue working with each other on an entertainment platform, whatever that looks like, we’re figuring it out. We take it one day at a time. We will see what happens when the contract expires and we will cross that bridge when it comes.”
