The New Day Want Another Heel Run In WWE

It's not very likely, though

The New Day are open to turning heel once again, with both Xavier Woods and Big E admitting to Metro that it was fun to upset children during their previous heel run from 2015 until early 2016. 

"Yeah! One hundred percent - I'm a horrible person! It's just super fun to scream at little kids, 'cause when we were heels before, our stuff would see kids getting legitimately mad and upset at us. It's just so much fun to be snarky, to be rude and disliked. It's great being cheered, and people pulling for us and being the good guys - both sides are really fun to play, but I wouldn't be mad at it at all. We love that, we talk about it all the time!" Woods revealed. 

Big E then added: "Honestly, we have [wanted that[ the entire time - we've always wanted to turn heel. It's just so much fun."

E acknowledged that a heel turn wasn't very likely, though, due to the group's popularity as babyfaces. 

"What I'm doing in the ring dovetails so well into all the things I wanna do outside of the ring, as far as just charitable work, just telling my story with my issues with depression and mental health. I just don't think it makes a lot of sense right now.

"The beautiful thing is our turns kind of happened organically, in the sense that we tried to be babyfaces right out of the gate, people were not having that so we became heels, and then we just got cheered for so long, so eventually we had to turn. My feeling is, if we do turn, it feels organic and it feels natural again. Unfortunately, we're in a position right now where our reactions are pretty damn good. So, I don't see that happening anytime soon, but who knows?

"To be honest, we fantasise about it all the time. I tell people that I had the most fun in my career when I was yelling at children, and threatening to ground children, and threatening children. They will always remember that moment when, 'I cheered for this guy against The New Day, he threatened to ground me but my guy beat him.' I love that dynamic, it's so much fun and we think about it all the time, but these people won't stop cheering for us. These people like their pancakes and their Booty-Os too much."
