WWE Intercontinental Champion Big E has been on the receiving end of a huge push as a singles star, ever since he was separated from the New Day during last year’s edition of the WWE Draft. He also made a name for himself as part of the New Day stable as well. It seems he has an interesting choice for a possible addition to the group. He is also rumored to lose the title to a top star.
Big E wants an MMA star to be part of The New Day. The Intercontinental Champion recently spoke on The A-Side Live Chat, where Big E revealed that he wants MMA star Israel Adesanya in the New Day.
“Israel [Adesanya’s] an obvious choice. I’m really looking for personality here and he’s a hell of a dancer. My God, what a dancer and even though he’s coming off a loss, I’m still going Adesanya. To me, he’s a star, he’s still a star, he’s got a ton of personality, he’s got the hips for the job and we need some length. All of us are like 6’0 or that 5’9 to 6’0 range. We need a guy with some length and so we’ll bring Izzy in for that.”
It is to be noted that Israel Adesanya had earlier mentioned he wants to try out WWE as well. We will have to see if he ever makes his way to the company.
