The most shocking moment during the 2020 Draft featured The New Day being split up. Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston were drafted to RAW while Big E remained on Smackdown, where he is getting a push as a singles star. Booker T certainly approves of this move.
Several fans were upset at The New Day breaking up. During his Hall Of Fame radio show, Booker T explained why he is glad the stable split up. Now Big E will be able to create something of his own and he also said he is interested in working with Big E in the future.
“I’m glad personally. This is the only way Big E can really run on his own. He could really put himself out there without having that umbrella of the New Day. You have to let it go and go out there and be Big E and create his own brand in order to fuel what he’s trying to do right now and that’s take it to the next level. I’m not saying he has to change anything. Big E is going to have to create his own brand. If that is happy go lucky Big E, that’s fine with me, but he’s going to have to do his own thing.”
“Hopefully, Big E will step up. I wish I could work with Big E for a minute. I wish I could get him in and let him sit under the learning tree for a minute like I did with Bobby Lashley back in the day and say this is what we need to do. Big E is a guy that I feel I could coach. If I was to manage someone, it would be a guy like Big E because I really feel Big E could run through the whole territory if the stars were aligned right for him.”
“I’m not saying I want to be a manager, but I feel if there is anyone I could manage and get some feelings out of the fans watching this would be a guy like Big E. Big E could really be the guy if he had the right expert tutelage.”
Perhaps the stable will be reunited one day. In the meantime, WWE is focusing on giving Big E a huge main event push on Smackdown, which Booker T certainly appreciates.
