• Vince McMahon’s New Rule For The New Day
As we have noted before, Big E is officially back on SmackDown and teamed up with New Day member Kofi Kingston recently.
However, the team of Kofi & Big E wasn’t announced as The New Day on SmackDown. This was a Vince McMahon decision.
Below is what Fightful Select reported:
“We’re told that Vince McMahon was adamant that Kofi Kingston and Big E not be referred to as ‘New Day’, and instead be called ‘Big E & Kofi Kingston’, which was how they were announced Big E’s first week back.
However, internally and on the company’s YouTube, apparently that message didn’t get through, as they were listed as New Day on both. However, the following week, that had changed.”
This could mean that Vince wants to keep Big E as a singles star and doesn’t want fans to think he’s going to be a Tag Team wrestler in The New Day again, and that this was just a temporary team-up due to Xavier Woods being out of action with an injury.
