Big E reveals why he was unhappy with Kevin Owens

On the latest edition of WWE’s newest podcast: Feel The Power, one half of the current SmackDown Tag Team Champions Big E spoke about how he felt disrespected when Kevin Owens filled in for him as a New Day member.

Big E had taken two months off soon after WrestleMania 35 owing to a knee injury. During that time his partners in The New Day – Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods – had made Kevin Owens an honorary member of the faction and Owens started referring to himself as Big O.

While Owens’ stint as a New Day member was short-lived, Big E detailed why he wasn’t happy with WWE’s decision to replace him. The 33-year-old stated that he wasn’t happy when he saw Owens doing his intro which he had come up with. Further stating that it felt like a slap on the face and disrespectful.

The former Intercontinental Champion clarified that he never had any problem with Kingston and Woods, as they were not the ones who came up with this idea.

    So in reality he was unhappy with the WWE’s decision to add Owens to The New Day whilst he was out injured. Not unhappy with Owens himself, but creative.

    To be perfectly fair, outside of Kofi’s surprise/impromptu title win, The New Day has been one of the stalest and most “past expiration date” acts in pro wrestling the last couple of years.

    A tag team staying together for years, even decades, can be a great thing. A STABLE staying together for that long, doing the same shtick year after year? Not so much.

    They had no choice and didn’t want to do it. Kevin’s feelings may we don’t know about. But him doing Big E’s gimmick like Big E wasn’t coming back would be considered an insult. The company should have not done it since it came off dumb anyway.

    They went along with it but they are ok Owen’s who was given the role by the company is the problem through?
