In a recent interview with ‘The Wrap’, WWE superstar Big E talked about a number of things, including the possibility of a heel turn for his stable, the New Day.
“After we dropped the titles to Sheamus and Cesaro about a year ago, I really thought that’s where we were headed,” Big E said.
“I think there was a lot of feeling that we were stale, and we kind of felt that way as well.”
“We were getting a smattering of boos. Sometimes more than a smattering,”
“I really don’t know if being heel is gonna be in the cards anytime soon,” E said. “I feel like we have a lot left to offer in terms of different varieties or different incarnations of The New Day”
While it doesn’t sound likely that a heel turn in the cards for the New Day, Big E didn’t completely dismiss the idea.
“You never know in 6 months how people are gonna feel”.
WWE Reportedly Interested In KUSHIDA
IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion KUSHIDA is reportedly drawing interest from WWE, according to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
KUSHIDA, 35, has been the cornerstone of New Japan Pro Wrestling’s light heavyweight division and one of their most recognized stars, globally.
The report indicates that NXT is the destination if WWE were to lure KUSHIDA from New Japan.
With NXT globalizing, an NXT Japan seems like a natural progression for the brand and KUSHIDA could be in those potential plans moving forward.
WWE Discussing Randy Orton to Replace HHH for Batista Match at WrestleMania
Triple H’s torn pectoral injury that he suffered during WWE’s Crown Jewel main event match, which he suffered early on in the match and finished the match with, will sideline him for several months and put a serious cloud of doubt over his status at WrestleMania 35.
Triple H had been slated to face Batista, and with HHH undergoing surgery, he could be out of the match as he recovers.
Despite the slim chance that HHH has in competing in the match, WWE is already thinking of alternatives.
According to sources, WWE is considering Randy Orton, another member of the Evolution faction, to take on Batista should Triple H not be ready to go by then. This all depends on HHH’s recovery, and WWE is still holding out hope that HHH will be able to go, but just in case, they now have a “Plan B”.
NJPW Talent Considering Departure, Upset with New Management
It appears that the new management heading up NJPW, led by Harold Meij, is rubbing talent the wrong way, upsetting their wrestlers so much so that they are considering a departure from the promotion, eyeing WWE as the next destination.
According to Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, Meij is also receiving backlash.
“The initial reaction was that the feeling was that he talks down to the wrestlers, he then continued to say many of the wrestlers are concerned he has no history in the business as well.
There are people who in the past had never even considered WWE who are thinking about it, and others who were completely committed to staying who are probably still leaning that way, but are considering the WWE option.”
