Big E Didn't Expect New Day Reunion So Soon After WWE Title Loss
A new title chase was originally on his mind
Instead of pursuing a rematch for the WWE Championship following his loss at Day 1, Big E received similar treatment to his New Day faction-mate Kofi Kingston and The Powerhouse Of Positivity has transitioned back to being a tag team wrestler with The New Day.
This followed Big E being traded from Monday Night Raw to Friday Night SmackDown and the former WWE Champion admitted to talkSPORT he didn't expect to reunite with Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston so soon after he dropped the WWE Title.
"My focus has been on controlling what I can. We've had several interviews and I'm sure I've already talked your ears off about meditation and how much that has helped me. But, that's my job. I focus on being the performer and do the very best with what I'm given, that's my focus. But, I don't want any of that to be perceived as me taking away from being with Kofi and Woods. That's my greatest delight," Big E began.
"For me, it was a transition I will say I did not expect at this time in my career. I had hoped to climb back and try once again to win back the WWE Championship. But, we have a pretty big champion [Roman Reigns] and pretty big title on SmackDown as well so, you never know."
What WWE have planned for Big E remains to be seen. Since moving to SmackDown, he and Kofi Kingston have twice defeated Angel and Humberto.
