The New Day recently appeared on Peter Rosenberg’s Open Late on Complex and spoke about The Big Show's initial negative response to the faction upon its formation. Below are their comments.
“Big Show, so when we were trying to get off the ground, Big Show would pull Kofi aside and say, ‘What are you doing with those two? They’re bringing you down. You should be in the World Title picture,” Big E said. “This isn’t a time where it’s like, ‘Oh Big Show, it’s all fun and games.’ Like, we’re struggling to get on TV and we’re thinking we’re gonna get fired.”
“You had been a champion,” Woods said to Big E. “I had been on the road for three months doing nothing. So I had just come up from developmental like, ‘Oh everything’s shiny and new I’m so happy to be here guys!’ And then [Big Show] is just taking a dump on me to my face.”
“To his credit, out of all the people who did say things to our face or said things behind our back,” Woods explained, “[Big Show] is the one person who came up and said, ‘I was completely wrong. You guys are awesome and you’re killing it and I’m glad that you didn’t listen to me.'”
