Singles push for New Day member? Bad news for Smackdown Submitted by Aaron Rift on 05/09/2018 at 04:53 PM
- Following a recent report about The New Day’s merchandise numbers declining, there has been speculation about the group possibly splitting up in the near future. With one of the New Day members being entered into the Money in the Bank ladder match if they defeat The Bar next week, Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com commented on this being a potential opportunity for Big E to have a singles run:
“He (Big E) makes the most sense. He can be a base for a lot of the other guys. If there was ever a time to break this team up and have Big E pushed to the next level – it’s probably now where the team is still popular. I don’t think they are at the apex of where they were. You could still have New Day with Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods. I think it’s overdue that Big E gets a singles push. Perhaps we will get that now.”
