"Hot trash" - Former WWE Champion discloses what Bryan Danielson told him regarding a famous SmackDown segment
WWE Superstar Big E recalled The New Day's rap battle against The Usos from 2017 and what Bryan Danielson had told him regarding the segment.
On the Cheap Heat podcast, the former WWE Champion claimed that he initially wasn't a fan of the idea of a rap battle and was also against the idea of New Day members 'spitting bars'.
He further mentioned that Danielson had told him that the rap battle segment could've easily gone an hour long.
"Going back to the rap battle we did, that should have been hot trash. When we announced it, I heard all the groans on Twitter. I got it. Even me, when Woods was the one pushing for it, I was like, 'Not a single one of us should ever be spitting a bar.' Not any of the three of us. The Usos, on the other hand, they need to put out an EP. One of my fondest memories is coming to the back and Daniel Bryan [Bryan Danielson] says, 'That could have been the rest of the show. Y'all could have done an hour.' From a wrestling purist like him, to say something like that, really, I was like, 'We did our thing.' Those segments are a real roll of the dice. You can do something cool and memorable, but the probability of you crashing and burning is really high," said Big E. [H/T:Fightful]
