Big E is today one of the biggest Superstars in the company today. He is the biggest babyface in the company today and has been on a dream run since winning the Money in the Bank briefcase this year. The New Day member won the briefcase and successfully cashed it on Bobby Lashley to become the WWE Champion.
All the New Day members have been fan-favourites since the faction was introduced. Kofi Kingston and E have gone on to become World Champions, whereas Xavier Woods recently became the King of the Ring at WWE Crown Jewel 2021. The trio have broken stereotypes for the African American wrestlers.
The WWE Champion recently appeared for an interview with Breakfast Club Power 101.5 FM, where he was asked about racism in WWE. To this the New Day member answered in negative and said that they are gradually getting to where they need to be.
“In WWE, no, honest I haven’t. I will say, as far as our representation on TV we are getting to where we need to be. It’s always a work in progress. Often times if there are issues it would present themselves as, people see you a certain way and they want you to, as a character go, ‘oh you’re a big black man,’ so this is the role you need to play,” mentioned the WWE Champion.
