Booker T is of the opinion that it's time for Big E. to move on from The New Day.
During a recent edition of his Hall Of Fame podcast, the WWE Hall Of Fame legend made a case for Big E. changing his look and distancing himself from The New Day to reach World Champion-level status in WWE.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the podcast, as well as a response to Booker T's take from New Day member Xavier Woods.
On some cosmetic changes he feels Big E. needs to make if he wants to be a World Champion in WWE: "I think Big E is going to have to shed a few things in order for people to look at him like the World Champion. The gear, maybe — some forms of the gear. The colors. But then again people say, ‘Oh, well, he shouldn’t change anything.’ I’m not gonna sit here and say what’s what because I don’t want the internet going off saying, ‘Oh, Booker T saying he needs to do this!"
On Big E. needing to evolve past The New Day act if he wants to ascend to the next level in WWE: "I still think Big E trying to be The New Day is not gonna work for him as far as him working at the top of the card. I’m talking about being the main attraction. I’m talking about the guy the company has put in position to be the guy! I don’t think that’s going to catapult him to that level as far as still trying to be The New Day. You can’t try to rehash something that you’ve been doing for so long and think that’s what is going to take you to the next level."
In response to the aforementioned comments from Booker T about Big E. needing to drop The New Day and make changes, Xavier Woods tweeted the following:
because doing what other people told us to do worked so well for us before we started doing what we wanted to do.... oh wait 🤣 pic.twitter.com/0aWMkb4p2g
