Speaking on the latest episode of The New Day’s Feel The Power podcast, Big E revealed that WWE wanted to add Titus O’Neil to the three-man group.

Much of the podcast revolved around Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston running through a three-page list of names that WWE pitched for The New Day to be called.

When Woods mentioned that The Prime was one of the options on the list, Big E recalled the time that the company’s decision-makers tried to make O’Neil – a former Prime Time Player – a member of The New Day.

“Speaking of, you know what I forgot? I forgot that at one point Titus was supposed to be part of our group. They tried to force him on us. We’ve got love for Titus – he’s our boy and whatnot – but we didn’t want Titus in our group.”

The New Day’s current WWE status

Xavier Woods suffered a serious Achilles injury during a WWE live event in Australia in October, ruling him out of in-ring action for at least the next six months.

Big E and Kofi Kingston, meanwhile, won the SmackDown Tag Team titles from The Revival on an episode of SmackDown in November, meaning The New Day are now seven-time Tag Team Champions.

Listen to Titus O'Neil's former tag team partner, Fred Rosser (fka Darren Young), discuss all things WWE with Sportskeeda's Korey Gunz on the first episode of The Rosser Rewind!
