Kofi isn't the only one to sign a new WWE contract as Big E and Xavier Woods also signed new five-year deals at the same time. It was reported on WWE Backstage that all three members of The New Day negotiated their deals for the same pay and the same terms as a way to show solidarity.
Big E is currently holding the blue brand titles with Kofi. They retained their titles over The Revival in a Ladder Match at WWE TLC on Sunday. Woods is out of action with an Achilles tear and could end up missing WrestleMania 36 in 2020, but that hasn't been confirmed as it's still early.
On a related note, it reported on tonight's show that Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford have also inked new multi-year deals with WWE. The length of the new contracts for The Street Profits was not confirmed, but WWE has been signing talents to five-year deals as of late. Ford and Dawkins are currently working the RAW brand tag team division.
Below are the official announcements from WWE:
The New Day agree to matching multi-year extensions with WWE
As first reported on WWE Backstage, The New Day have agreed to matching multi-year extensions with WWE. Kofi Kingston, Big E & Xavier Woods solidified a pact of identical length and compensation on their contracts to maintain equal status among the team.
The news of Kingston's extension broke on the trio's weekly podcast The New Day: Feel the Power.
It's been an eventful year for The New Day, who are in their seventh reign as Tag Team Champions. Kingston & Big E are carrying the titles while Woods is recovering from an Achilles injury.

The Street Profits agree to multi-year extensions with WWE
As first reported on WWE Backstage, The Street Profits have agreed to multi-year extensions with WWE.
Since coming to Raw in 2019, The Street Profits have been bringing all that smoke to the red brand. The duo defeated The O.C. in their debut match on Raw and have continued to move up the tag team ranks.
Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins have also been some of WWE's most entertaining performers with their backstage breakdowns and a unique spin on the SNL favorite with last week's "Monday after Weekend Update." In fact, on this week's episode of WWE After The Bell, Ford revealed that The Street Profits were born out of an NXT acting class.
