Big E Talks About His Hopes for His Singles Career, Standing Out from Other African-American Wrestlers

WWE Friday Night SmackDown Superstar Big E of The New Day recently spoke to Yahoo! Sports about his singles career:

"This is all kind of coming out of nowhere, I feel confident that I am ready for this. The interesting thing and weird thing is we don't have that organic response. I hope people enjoy this run, I hope it's good and entertaining, I hope all of the people who have clamored for this for years are not disappointed."

"I also think representation matters. It matters to see people like you, who look like you, doing well. I never wanted to be put in the box where they say 'This is how a muscular Black wrestler should perform.' As much as I love Ron Simmons, I never wanted to be a copy of Ron Simmons or of so many of the Black wrestlers I watched as a kid. I wanted to be a one of one. I wanted to be someone who cannot be easily replaced because what I do is different than what anyone else does."
