Big E On Being a Part of The New Day
“We obviously created something special. If I didn’t get to this point in my career, I wouldn’t be in WWE. I wouldn’t have been in the main roster if it wasn’t for Woods and Kofi and for that run that we got.

He became the first African-born WWE Champion in history and also became a Grand Slam Champion. The New Day Received a lot of attention after Kofi’s WWE Title win. “In our business, the fans are the barometer. They tell you immediately if something is good or something is bad.

“It’s one thing to go on Twitter. As we all know, Twitter and that online feedback can be very different…”
