Big E. Explains Why It Was Important For The New Day To Be Authentic

How important is authenticity to the success of The New Day?

During his recent appearance on The Breakfast Club radio show for an interview, Big E. spoke about exactly that.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where the WWE Champion talks about how important it is for The New Day to be authentic.

“It has been important for us, the three of us are nerds. We are comic book nerds so we wanted to really just be ourselves. I think too often in our industry, you would see talent of color put in certain boxes like you have to be a rapper or dancers. We just wanted to be ourselves. We came out wearing bright colors, just doing silly stuff and the response at first was rocky, but we just wanted to show people you can be yourselves, you can be unique, and still be proudly black.”

Check out the complete interview via the video embedded below. H/T to 411 Mania for transcribing the above quotes.
