The New Day have a long history with each other. KofiMania proved that one of them can break out and have a singles run without the team breaking up. If you ask Corey Graves, he’d like to see this happen for Big E.
On After The Bell, Corey Graves spoke about Big E. He wants to see a big push for Big E and thinks that it’s about time for him to break out on his own as a singles star.
“This should be the opportunity for Big E’s big, singles breakout performance. Now, I’m not saying to break up The New Day. They’ve gone on the record a million times and said, ‘Nope, they want to stay a unit forever’, and I don’t want to be the one to argue. But people forget that Big E was a former NXT Champion, Big E was a former [Intercontinental Champion] very shortly into his WWE career and that was when he was still figuring things out.”
“Big E now has the seasoning. He’s no doubt learned while spending all this time with Kofi. He’s definitely developed in the ring and if you can’t see that, I don’t know what you’re watching. Big E has future WWE or Universal Champion written all over him. As entertaining as all three of The New Day members are in front of the camera, we haven’t even scratched the tip of the iceberg pf what Big E is capable of as a performer.”
Currently, Big E is 1/2 of the SmackDown Tag Team Champions so a singles run might have to wait a bit. We’ll have to see what happens, but Big E has all of the tools needed to be plenty entertaining on his own.
