Big E had to cross many hurdles over the years, during his time in WWE. After a solid run on NXT, he was called up to the main roster, but was eventually lost in the shuffle. He also believes The New Day wouldn’t be taken seriously as heels.

Big E is also part of the New Day, which remains one of the best tag teams in pro wrestling history. When the New Day made their debut as a group, they were initially heels, but were eventually turned into babyfaces due to their rise in popularity.

The New Day certainly made their marks in the pro wrestling world. This is because their infectious positivity and hilarious antics made them a huge hit with fans.

While speaking on the Cheap Heat podcast, Big E talked about The New Day turning heel in the future. Big E stated that he believes they would not be taken seriously as heels.


“I’m so far out from that. When the doctor says, ‘we’ll re-scan you in a year.’ That’s March (2023). We’re not close to March. What we did with New Day, for us, it’s maximizing, ‘what do I do well and what are other people not doing?’ I kind of want to see what the landscape looks like as far as, if things are looking good in March and I’m cleared, what do things look like then? The cool thing is, it was my first run and now I have the opportunity to learn from the missteps or make different choices.

You just never want to come back just to do the same thing. (Xavier) Woods always says this, and I’m a big believer, that after a long time, three months or more of being out, you want to come back with something different. With a different look, a different feel. There are so many different things I’ve wanted to do as well in the ring, so many things we’ve talked about. I’m so glad we got to do funny, goofy New Day, but besides the one week, one TV, the very first time, that’s the only time we were militant New Day. Man, we had a ton of ideas. That would be dope as well. I don’t know if we’re too far gone, if you’ve seen too many hip thrusts and gyrations to now take us seriously as diabolical murderous heels, but I’d love to try my hand at different things to see if it works. We might be too far gone, I don’t know.”

Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods are currently feuding with The Viking Raiders on WWE television. As for Big E, it will be a very long time until he comes back from his neck injury.
