3. Big E
Why it works: New Day is super, super over. Big E, like Cesaro, is pretty much everything WWE wants in a top superstar… plus he’s black, hilarious, and a goddamn genius on social media. It doesn’t hurt that Vince has a certain… affinity? for guys with Big E’s build. Plus, he’s had great matches with smaller guys, and incredible hoss fights with big guys. A Big E win creates TONS of new match-ups at the top of the card.
Why it (probably) won’t happen: New Day is over as a comedy gimmick, and WWE doesn’t think of them as top guys. Plus, Big E is black… and that usually doesn’t work out too well in the WWE Championship picture.
