The New Day recently appeared on Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights.
Xavier Woods on the origins of BootyO’s:
“I think it was, like, last November. We were just in the car. We always try to push and see, like, what we can do. And so, we came up with the idea, like, ‘oh, maybe like a cereal. It’s like, Booty-O’s. We can make a cereal called Booty-O’s.’ And so, I contacted a guy on Twitter who’s a very good artist and commissioned him to draw up what it would look like if we had a cereal box. And then, the next day on [WWE Monday Night] RAW, we just said, ‘Booty-O’s! They make sure you ain’t booty.’ Just said it. And then, we got two things of fan art, whatever, on Twitter. And then, that Friday, we released the picture that the guy drew, that we had the guy draw. Then, we said it again the next Monday. Then, that next week, tons of fan art. Then, they came to us, like, ‘eh, what’s this Booty-O’s thing? We need to do something.’ And it’s like, we literally willed it into existence and it feels real good.”
Big E on his dancing:
“I’ll be honest. I didn’t know I had that in me. I don’t dance. Like, I don’t dance at all. I don’t do any of that. And then, I don’t know when it started, but it just felt right. I was like, ‘oh, I’m going to try this’ and it felt so right. And now it’s getting out of hand!” Big E added, “I can’t remember the first thing that was said, but the cool thing is Vince loves the nonsense. We always get reports that, like, we’ll have a writer or someone in Gorilla and they’ll tell us that Vince is doubled over laughing. He loves the nonsense and that’s really cool.”
The group also talked about their time in WWE, original plans for the group and more. Click here to listen to the podcast.
