WWE SmackDown Star Big E recently appeared on the Cheap Heat podcast to talk about topics such as how if you have been sidelined for a really long time, then you would want to make your return to in-ring action with something that is different and something that you are not accustomed to. Big also talked about how he has so many different things in mind that he wants to do with The New Day, but he thinks The New Day is too far gone to become heels.
Big E said:
“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.”
