• Big E Dropping The New Day Gimmick & Comedy Act
After The New Day split during the 2020 WWE Draft, Big E is going to get a singles push on SmackDown, and he’s even going to drop The New Day gimmick.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Big E is set to become a serious character in his big singles push that’s coming soon.
“Perhaps the most talked about aspect was the split up of The New Day, with Kingston & Woods moving to RAW as Tag Team Champions and Big E staying a single. The idea is to get Big E away from the act and make him more serious for a singles push.
Historically, WWE has broken up tag team acts in the draft before and while there are exceptions, most of the time they find out the combination of parts was more effective than the parts individually.
One would suspect E getting a major singles push, which was talked about weeks ago and somewhat started. The idea is to get him out of the comedic mode.
There is a logic to it even though, because the New Day has been established together for so many years and have been popular, there was going to be a negative reaction breaking them up without a storyline leading to it.”
The New Day had their farewell match last night on SmackDown, where they defeated Sheamus, Cesaro, & Shinsuke Nakamura in a 6 man tag team match.
