Big E recently spoke with Ryan Satin of FOX Sports.
During the interview, he was asked about WWE splitting up The New Day with Big E staying on SmackDown while Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods going to Raw.
Here is what he had to say:
“Possibly,” Big E answered. “But if we’re going to do the split, it’s either we do it or we don’t. I still want some level of connectivity, but there’s going to be no clamoring for a reunion if I’m constantly around. Or if they’re constantly finding ways to be in my segments. I think that some separation could be a good thing. I think it allows us to build some identity.
“As much as I want us to stay connected … I feel like, as moving as Friday was for so many people, if next week I’m showing up at Raw or wearing a lucha mask and pretending that I’m not Big E on Raw, and I’m teaming with them – and they’re finding ways to get involved in my stuff – I feel like we’ve really detracted from this really emotional profound segment. At least to me. And from the response that we got from so many people. I feel like it takes away from that. We’ll need to find ways. I think there’s a bit of a line here that we need to find a way to toe to still make sure we stay connected, but absence makes the heart grow fonder and I want your heart to grow fonder.”
