During this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, the New Day was broken up as Big E remained on Smackdown, while Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods were drafted to RAW. It seems there was a good reason behind this decision.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed the reason for WWE’s reason for breaking up The New Day. He said that the mentality backstage is that desires to give Big E a push as a singles star. In their mind, if he is part of The New Day then fans would want him to remain as part of the team.
Meltzer thinks that they splitting up The New Day was not the right decision. However, if the company intends on going all the way with Big E and make him a huge singles star, then everyone will be satisfied.
