• Big E Says “People Like Us Will Only Get So Far” In WWE, New Day Hints At Leaving WWE

Big E posted a video on Twitter where he talked about Kofi Kingston being screwed out of the WWE Championship picture yet again.

Below is what Big E said in the video:

“We got some time to contemplate what happened Tuesday night and obviously Kofi’s performance, and the aftermath and our reaction to all of that, and a little bit of time to reflect, too, on our careers and why we do this.

You think of this business, to some degree, of being meritocracy, that if you work hard, you show up early, you stay late, you do all the right things, you jump through all the right hoops, you’re respectful, you don’t break the law, that you get good at your craft, that you hone all that, that you find a place with fans, you separate yourself and find a niche, you separate yourself from a character perspective, from an in-ring perspective, you do everything, you check all the boxes, you show up in shape, you do everything that’s asked of you in this business, that if you do all those things you have a good chance of making it to the top. But now we understand the game, we see where the game is, that people like us will only get so far.

You can climb the mountain, they’ll let you climb the mountain, but as far as getting to the peak and staying at the peak, it’s not a thing. That people like us, historically and moving forward, clearly, can only get so far.

We’ve done a lot of cool things here, we’ve been able to do a lot of things that we never could’ve imagined we could do, but clearly we are never meant to be more than this. And for people like us, that’s not enough and it will never be enough. So, we’ve got to sit back and think whether we continue to be gone for 250 days plus a year, is worth it, of missing the family time, of doing this to our bodies, leaving a piece of yourself in the ring that you can never get back, all the things that we give, is it worth it when we can only get this far?

So, we’ve got a lot of thinking to do. Obviously proud of Kofi, proud of us as a trio, proud of what we’ve done, but if this is all we will ever be, I don’t know if it’s worth it.”

During a recent appearance at GDC, Xavier Woods teased The New Day possibly leaving WWE after what happened on SmackDown.

Below is what Woods said:

“I’m sure you guys saw what happened this past Tuesday to Kofi. We have other things that we enjoy doing. We have other skills. Me, I love video games. I’m a part of this community and I love this community with all of my heart and this community loves me back. That’s a relationship I am willing to be in.

So you fully understand that constantly being treated in the way that we, The New Day, have been treated and will most likely be treated from here on out – I just want to say that I appreciate what you did Vince, thank you very much because it has definitely showed me which direction that I need to go in to take care of myself and take care of my family.”
