Big E. Comments On The Differences Between The New Day & The Shield, More


During a recent interview with Sportskeeda, WWE Superstar Big E. commented on the differences between The New Day and The Shield, how the group stayed together despite being on separate brands, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On the differences between The New Day and The Shield: “I think what separates us from a lot of other groups is, you know, The Shield, I feel like those guys were always meant to be — they’re a supergroup. That’s how I viewed them. They were all guys who were all destined to be stars. They were already stars and they were going to be big stars. I think the three of us — The New Day to me is so different as a trio because we needed each other to get to this point. I think there’s so much in my career that I wasn’t going to be able to do if it wasn’t for the New Day. Whereas I think Roman Reigns was always going to be Roman Reigns. Same with all the members of The Shield.”

On the group staying together: “I feel like there’s a lot of, you know, the old pro wrestling mantra is, ‘You get with a faction, your guys all get elevated, then you kind of turn on those other guys, and you move past them and use them as a stepping stone to get where you need to go.’ I want to do something different. I really truly believe in our brotherhood. I believe in the bond between us. Kofi was able to become a world champion without ever turning his back on his brothers and I feel like I can still do so many of the same things. I don’t want to change who I am, fundamentally, in order to fit the mould of what people think a top guy or World Champion is. I have no interest in changing myself to become what people want or expect. So, you know, I have a ton of respect for what [Roman’s] done and also this recent run, too. But, you know, if there’s any allusion to like, ‘hey I need to turn on those others, or forget Kofi and Woods to get where I need to be, that’s not happening. That’s not anything that’s even remotely interesting to me.”
