Big E Says New Day Got Some Pushback For Dragon Ball Z Gear

Big E and New Day have been able to connect with fans in a variety of ways both on-screen and off.

One way New Day has gotten its message across to fans is through their gear. Whether its an ode to their favorite television shows, musical albums, or the past; New Day always brings the creativity with their gear.

Speaking to Joseph Deckelmeier of Illuminerdi, Big E discussed the creativity in the New Day gear and whether they've ever gotten into trouble.

"We've had some issues because we like to toe the line and sometimes we'll do stuff beforehand where, if Mattel has a relationship with a certain entity, we know there will be similar issues. We like to do a lot of stuff and we're believers in the premise 'asking for forgiveness instead of permission' because it can be easy to say 'that could offend someone' or whatever it is. We'll just do stuff and if we get pushback...we did get some pushback on the Dragon Ball stuff at work. Especially at WrestleMania, where it's a one-off, we go out there and wear it. You can yell at us all you want and tell us to stop wearing it because it's a one-off, we're done with it anyway. I do like when Mattel can make all the elements. I was a little bummed they couldn't make the Dragon Ball Z shells. The packaging for that gear when we came in the Booty O's box and opened it up at WrestleMania in Dallas. Sometimes we get...I feel there's only been two or three instances that I can think of, but it's never really been a big deal at all, it's just sometimes it gets flagged, I would definitely be remiss if I don't mention Jonathan Davenport, who is the man," he said.

Davenport has been creating gear for Xavier Woods for years before he started designing for all of New Day. He also works with Big E on Our Heroes Rock.

Big E teased that he will have new gear for WWE Survivor Series that will pay tribute to the location of the event, which is in Brooklyn. Big E will take on Roman Reigns at the event.

Fightful will have live coverage of WWE Survivor Series beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
