Now that Big E is a singles star on SmackDown, we might be seeing a different presentation for him. E is one of the babyfaces on the brand that will be relied upon and the feeling is that he needs to get away from the comedy New Day persona.
E noted on The Gorilla position podcast that some ideas have been pitched for him to have new music or a new presentation.
He said, “We talked about some ideas like new music for me or a new presentation. We talked about when the right time is to play it. The nice part is I feel like I have a voice with the SmackDown creative team. We are able to go back and forth on some ideas and they are actually listening. Also, I have to give credit to Daniel Bryan because the idea for the solo run was from him. Bryan is the reason. He’s actually a part of the process and he’s the one who said, hey, this is what we should do with Big E. He’s the one behind that and for that, I am really grateful. But it feels like I do have a voice. I am not saying I get to do anything I want to by any means. I think Raw has a great roster, but I love our roster. I look around and I see a lot of talent. I think we got better with the draft.”
E did not say when we might see the changes to his presentation. You can listen to the entire Gorilla Position podcast interview on Apple Podcasts or Google Play or anywhere you listen to your favorite podcasts.
