Big E was a recent guest on My Mom’s Basement with Robbie Fox to discuss all things WWE. During the interview, Big E revealed that in the buildup to the 2019 Survivor Series, he wanted New Day to go to NXT to have a match with The Undisputed Era.
“We always wanted to stuff with Undisputed Era, and we even talked about going down to NXT at some point and doing a run with them,” Big E said. “That was something that we really wanted to do. Those guys were so incredibly hot, they had such a great run down there. But yeah it was cool. That version of Survivor Series, where we involved NXT, I thought was cool and unique and [it] added a different flavor to Survivor Series. So we didn’t get our faction versus faction match with Undisputed Era, but being a part of the stuff with Viking Raiders and those guys was cool. And it was a unique way to do that match.”
Big E misses the Survivor Series he watched growing up
The WWE Universe isn’t really excited about this Sunday’s Survivor Series pay-per-view due to the lack of stakes associated with the event. Big E remembers the Survivor Series event being a lot more fun when he was growing up.
“I just have this general memory of just the Survivor Series teams that I grew up [watching], I just loved the fact, the Mean Gene promos, I always loved,” Big E said. “I wish we’d do more of that, just these five colorful characters, and they’re all losing their mind and it’s the over-the-top nature of everyone coming together. So that’s just what I think of when I think of the Survivor Series teams that I grew up watching.”
You can catch WWE Champion Big E going one-on-one with Universal Champion Roman Reigns in a battle for brand supremacy this Sunday at Survivor Series.
