Big E on New Day’s rising popularity

Discussion in 'General WWE' started by Neptune, Oct 22, 2015.

  1. Interview with SI :

    SI.com: The New Day are becoming a bigger part of storylines every week, you headlined against Cena on Raw recently, what’s it like being trusted with that slot?

    Big E: I think we all thought we’d be good enough to get to this point. The biggest thing was our character and not looking like three guys that were thrown together.The last three to four months have been an absolute blast. It’s been the most fun I’ve had between the three of us. It doesn’t feel like we’re being forced down people’s throat which is great.

    SI.com: We all knew you were a funny a guy, anyone who follows you on Twitter or Instagram knows that. But we didn’t really get to see it on TV during your IC title reign or when you were with Ziggler. It feels like you’re finally being able to be yourself with The New Day, has that been nice?

    Big E: Part of the whole point of doing those Instagram videos was showing people that I had a different side of me. My whole time on the main roster was me being a stoic bodyguard, and I was still pretty stoic during the Intercontinental Title run. A lot of the promos didn’t feel like me, and I didn’t feel like I was captivating any attention. I wanted to show people that I had a personality. So yeah it’s been really nice to get a chance to show that on TV.

    SI.com: If you could add a fourth member to The New Day, who would it be?

    Big E: Sasha Banks, no question. She’s probably my favorite wrestler on the planet right now. The stuff she’s done with Bayley have been tremendous, both at Takeover: Brooklyn and the Iron Man Match. We’ve got a lot of respect for her, she’s on another level.

    SI.com: If you could add a non-wrestler to The New Day, who would it be?

    Big E: Ummm, how about Tim Tebow? He’s obviously in great shape and what not. I feel like it’d be a great fit!

    SI.com: You, Kofi and Xavier are obviously all super funny, but outside of The New Day, who’s the funniest guy on the WWE roster?

    Big E: I might go with Jimmy Uso. R-Truth is also pretty funny. Heath Slater… well Heath Slater is unintentionally funny.

    SI.com: What makes Jimmy Uso funny?

    Big E: He’s just very quick-witted, good with one-liners, he’s just a naturally funny guy.

    SI.com: Who’s the toughest guy to work in the sense that after you’re done working with him you know you’re going to be sore the next day?

    Big E: Sheamus has a reputation for being a little stiff. I’d say Sheamus and Titus O’Neil. Titus O’Neil can mess you up! You gotta protect yourself with Titus!

    SI.com: You’ve had some ups and downs on the main roster and before The New Day happened you weren’t on TV much. Did you ever get discouraged?

    Big E: I was extremely discouraged. You get to the point where you’re off TV and you look at the landscape around you and you’re like ‘Woah there’s not a lot for me,’ and it doesn’t turn around for a lot of guys like it has for us. We spent a lot of time working on this, and I think some younger people don’t understand how much work we put in. There are plenty of instances of ‘Oh this thing is dead in the water,’ or ‘Oh this thing is never going to work,’ but we were fortunate enough to persevere and get it off the ground. That’s the key. Sink or swim, we believed so much in this idea.

  3. People are getting bored with them already though and eventually they will run them into the ground to the point people get sick of them. I always liked Big E though. He is an entertaining dude and I hope this pushes him to the top.
     
  4. People are getting bored of The New Day? Silly marks.
     
  5. Yeah it is happening. Soon enough it will be "cool" to hate them.
     
  6. Well, they ARE heels after all. :smirk2:

    Just don't run 'em into the John Cena wall and everything will be alright.

  7. New Day is dumb. I saw them on Smackdown and they killed my high. Fuck them.

  8. They were fun at first. Now they're trying too hard.. Jumping up & down and repeating yourselves i don't find entertaining.... Xavier Woods is the only one entertaining when he's running his mouth during New Day's matches.. Other than that, they got stale quickly in my opinion.

  9. At this rate, arguably, they should be on their way to becoming the greatest tag team ever.
