Xavier Woods has responded to recent advice for his New Day teammate Big E that came from two-time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T.
With Woods having been injured for several months, and Kofi Kingston now taking a number of weeks off, Big E is set to be pushed as a singles competitor.
Booker T had his say on the potential of Big E, saying he thinks he needs to become a bit more serious in order to become a real top level star.
Here’s what Booker said on his podcast:
“I think Big E is going to have to shed a few things in order for people to look at him like the World Champion. The gear, maybe — some forms of the gear. The colors. But then again people say, ‘Oh, well, he shouldn’t change anything.’ I’m not gonna sit here and say what’s what because I don’t want the internet going off saying, ‘Oh, Booker T saying he needs to do this!
“I still think Big E trying to be The New Day is not gonna work for him as far as him working at the top of the card. I’m talking about being the main attraction. I’m talking about the guy the company has put in position to be the guy! I don’t think that’s going to catapult him to that level as far as still trying to be The New Day. You can’t try to rehash something that you’ve been doing for so long and think that’s what is going to take you to the next level.”
This caught the attention of Xavier Woods who posted a tweet, writing:
because doing what other people told us to do worked so well for us before we started doing what we wanted to do…. oh wait 🤣
The start of the Big E singles run started last night on SmackDown as he picked up a win over The Miz.
