As reported by us at Wrestling World, the former Smackdown couple champion together with the guys from New Day, Big E, had loudly asked WWE to be able to do something even in single with the company. Not even on purpose, during the last episode of Friday Night Smackdown aired this night (Italian time), Big E immediately had the opportunity to begin his adventure as a single, with Kofi Kingston who warned his friend that he had injured quite seriously during their Extreme Rules Tables match, which cost him the belts of Smackdown pair champions at the hands of Cesaro and Nakamura.
News on Big E
Just during the last episode of the federation's blue show, the remaining members of the New Day currently on-screen were framed, with Xavier Woods who is still in the pits for the Achilles tendon injury that has held him still for several months, with Kofi Kingston coming out of the medical room, he updated Big E about his physical condition, which apparently will keep him for at least six weeks away from the company's in-ring action.
Even if Kofi has not specified which injury may have affected him, or if the injury turns out to be real or part of a storyline to expel the former WWE Champion from the McMahon rings, it is still certain that we will soon see Big E fight in single, maybe with some important opportunities for his career, as he himself hoped in recent days, with the WWE that could have seized the ball, giving a single stint to the athlete, who has been asking for it for years.
Who knows that Big E without New Day is not even aiming very high, perhaps towards a primary or secondary title of the WWE blue show? Last week on D-Von Dudley’s “Table Talk” podcast, Big E said the following after he was asked about possibly breaking up The New Day so he could get a singles run: “As cool as the singular moment of us breaking up might be for some, tell me besides the Shield, it is very rare will all three benefit.
I don’t foresee us breaking up and then a year from now, Woods is on a roll, Kofi is on a roll, and I’m on a roll at the same time. It’s not really going to happen. The chances are very slim because we are not booked in that way.
I feel like we are still contributing to the show in a meaningful way. I feel we do stuff that is memorable and impactful. Sure, there are a myriad of things I would like to do that would be dynamic and interesting, but you have to do the best you can with what you are given. That has always been our goal. You give us this amount of minutes on TV, this is our segment, this is our promo."
