Big E. Talks Hitting AJ Lee On His RAW Debut, Feuding With Wyatt Family
December 10, 2020
Big E. of The New Day recently spoke with The Rappler Podcast to promote the upcoming WWE tour scheduled to take place in Manila in September. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On accidentally hitting AJ Lee prior to his debut match on RAW in 2013:
“That was, at the time, probably the most frightening moment in my career. It probably still is.
“I remember swinging back and knowing that I hit her, and I was expecting to turn around, see this tiny woman on the ground in a pool of blood. I don’t know what I would have done after that, probably just walk straight to the back. But thankfully, she’s very tough, it ended up hitting her, in, like, her chest or upper torso region, not her face, she was fine. We ended up having a laugh about it later but that could have been really bad, but thankfully, everything’s all good.”
On The New Day feuding with The Wyatt Family:
“I think it’s a stark contrast from the feuds that we’ve had in the past, which tended to be based around physicality. There isn’t often times a lot more depth – one of the things we like is that in a different way that we would go back and forth with Enzo and Cass, which is more just cracking jokes back and forth. Obviously we’re still gonna be us, but I think with Bray, and the way he controls the mic and – is you know, one of the better talkers of our generation. I think it definitely adds a different challenge for us, and a new wrinkle. I think this program is just going to show a different side of both teams and feel fresh.”
