Big E parted ways with his New Day siblings during the 2020 WWE Draft. He remained on Smackdown while the rest were recruited for RAW. He is now focusing on his individual career and WWE is planning a big push for him.
Big E wants to be different from all the other great men who came before him. He spoke to After The Bell, where he revealed that he has no desire to want to be like Brock Lesnar. While they are incredible artists, they are not six feet tall. Big E has different abilities with which he wants to differentiate himself from the rest.
“I think what I quickly realized was’ okay, I’m a bigger guy. I’m going to be listed as a powerhouse. “But I always thought how would I be different? You have Brock, we had Mark Henry … I’m not even five feet tall. And I’m thinking of all these guys I’m going to be with. compare. All the guys occupying a similar lane. “
“So I kept thinking ‘man, what if I was just another serious big guy? I don’t know how much traction I’m going to get at this company. So for me it was a matter of trying to understand that … I can’t work like Apollo Crews, I can’t do what Apollo does. I can’t do those things and I’m not as big as a lot of other guys. So I tried to find out what makes me different. Which allows me to differentiate myself. “
We’ll have to see what WWE has planned for Big E. Maybe a great match at Survivor Series is on the card for him.
Wade Barrett reveals the reason he missed NXT
Wade Barrett served as a “remote correspondent” during WWE NXT on Wednesday night. Barrett explained during the show that he was not live on the show for a strange reason.
Barrett said: “I’m trapped in Dexter Lumis basement. Can you send help asap?” Wrestling Edge is asking The Boogeyman to save Wade Barrett, he will come looking for you!
Wrestling Inc. owner Raj Giri and Wrestling Observer owner Dave Meltzer discussed NXT and the quality of wrestling product today.
XAshleyAllen tweeted: “You’re right, NXT has the best fighting quality in current wrestling alongside NJPW.”
Raj Giri replied: “I have always cared three times for the quality of the matches. I am not going to convince my friends to watch Creed 2 because there is a 5 star fight. Let’s get back to the things that people care about. Sourcing of the hardcores will end the business. “
Dave Meltzer responded: “It has become a talking point for people who listen to people who are not paying attention. WWE has never cared about the quality of matches and it has declined. The non-WWE ones are the most popular in 20 years. Providing great matches has been key to that growth. “
“Big matches have never been the best in any combat sport when it comes to popularity, great personalities always have been. That said, big games have never been so important to the growth of the company and the talent itself. “
When asked if he was giving Giri a chance, Meltzer said: “It’s a chance for anyone who buys the idea, everything points to hardcores and that’s why it’s not popular. Because not everything is aimed at hardcores and some parts of the pre-pandemic business were growing. The sky is not falling, although some people want to say yes. “
Vince McMahon rejected the ‘stupid’ undertaker’s idea
The Undertaker is a legend in the world of professional wrestling, having dedicated more than three decades of his life to the business. He was a mainstay during the ’90s in WWE and competed against several major stars including Bret Hart and many more. Undertaker’s WWE plans for 2021 have just been revealed.
During the latest episode of his Something To Wrestle podcast, Bruce Prichard spoke about WWE In Your House 6. During the conversation, Bruce Prichard revealed a canceled idea involving Kevin Nash and The Undertaker on In Your House 6.
The idea in question was eventually canceled due to the fact that it was “too dumb” to be a thing.
“I thought the game was a good game. Go back and watch it and it’s a decent match. They were telling a story. When you get to that story at the end, it was to get to the Undertaker story, now it will keep this Diesel one. That was the history of this party. What we didn’t do was actually Kevin Nash’s idea that I was so looking forward to, and I actually remember coming back with Vince and doing a second pitch, is that once the Undertaker pushes Diesel into the hole and draws Diesel underneath in the hole, that when Diesel reappeared, he had a gray streak in his hair. I thought, my gosh, that’s great. It was ruled to be too cheesy. “
The Rock downloads on wrestling promoter ‘Dirty’
The Rock remains one of the most popular professional wrestlers the industry has ever seen, and his influence is still being felt in the business. He had many fights during his time as a young wrestler in WWE and faced many adversities. John Cena ranted about having to lose to The Rock.
After the last episode of “Young Rock” finished airing, Rare editor Jack Hunter recently took to Twitter and commented on the episode.
Teen @TheRock knocking out a kid at school for calling wrestling “fake” just made my night. Because you know what happened. #YoungRock
The Rock responded to Hunter, where he said he hit a boy with a hammer in elementary school and then knocked out someone in high school for calling pro wrestling “fake.”
Hi Jack, it sure happened. Twice. Monté drove a boy in elementary school. KO a kid in high school. He was suspended both times. I was wrong. But back in the 80s, my dad and all the fighters taught me to “protect the business” always. It’s what we did. #YoungRock
The episode also featured the underbelly of the professional wrestling business, especially the promoters. The Rock responded to a fan who mentioned this.
There was a hard / seedy belly in professional wrestling for decades and decades. It was what it was and you did your best to keep your head spinning in those shark infested waters.
