On the latest episode of “The New Day: Feel The Power” podcast, Big E, Xavier Woods, and Kofi Kingston answered questions on dating, relationships, marriage, and coping with your wife lusting after Finn Balor.
They also talked about this year’s Royal Rumble and other wrestling-related topics.
Here are some highlights:
Big E said this year was his favorite Royal Rumble:
“Even though this was a weird one with no crowd, I will say that this was my favorite for many reasons because of the Brodie gear, because of the reunion with you guys, but also, getting to do some pretty cool stuff. We all love Christian. Jay (Reso) is such a good dude. I had no idea he was going to be in the Rumble when I walked into that building. To be able to do stuff with Jey, and the crazy thing is, Christian’s last match was a number one contender’s match for the Intercontinental Title about seven years ago which was held by me. So, what are the odds that once again, after all these years, I haven’t had the Intercontinental Title since that first run. I get the I.C. Title. Christian comes back and we actually have an interaction in the Rumble all these years later. I’m happy for him. I consider him a friend. I light up when I see him and I’m so excited for him that he’s progressed enough and is healthy enough and he looks great for his age. He’s in great shape and hasn’t missed a step.”
Xavier Woods told us how excited he was for Bianca Belair winning the women’s Royal Rumble:
“I made myself go find her to explain to her that I’ve been here for 10 years and I have never once seen a pop in the locker room for a finish to a match. If someone is going to applaud, you know, veterans come back and we go to gorilla and everybody claps, great job, all that stuff. But like, for people who pretty much just came on to the roster and haven’t had the chance to do a bunch of crazy things yet, everyone was so happy for her. The genuine arms up in the air screaming that she won, I’ve never seen that in the locker room. It was so cool that everybody was so happy. Seeing that warmed my heart.”
