Big E stayed on SmackDown as Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods were moved to Raw. They kept the New Day music on Big E for a while. Tonight, that situation changed for the former NXT Champion.
Big E competed in a six-man tribute match for Pat Patterson. Daniel Bryan and Rey Mysterio were introduced first. Then unfamiliar music hit before Big E’s name appeared on the screen.
The have a whole new setup for Big E’s entrance now. This was a bit of a surprise, and it will likely take some getting used to. His entrance attire was still a New Day design.
Big E has officially distanced himself from the New Day in terms of entrance music.
