ROH Wrestler Says WWE Is Racist In How They Portray "The New Day" Faction

December 15, 2020 0 By JohnValbyNation

Ring Of Honor wrestler Cedric Alexander feels WWE is being racist in the way they are treating “The New Day” faction in recent weeks, and he isn’t shy in voicing his opinion on the subject.

During a recent appearance on the Jobbing Out podcast, the ROH star shared his feelings on the topic.

Below is an excerpt from the interview:

“This opens up a whole different can of worms here, because everyone I know that watches WWE is offended by The New Day… extremely offended because of the whole racial thing. It’s like, ‘oh we’re three black guys, we’ll sing, we’ll dance. You’ve got Kofi Kingston, who’s a phenomenal athlete, Big E Langston is a gigantic, threatening man and Xavier Woods is extremely intelligent. So why make them sing and dance when they obviously can be more… serious, I guess? When they first started this thing, it was like two or three weeks that they did it where Xavier would come out and be like a Malcolm X type of thing. He was preaching black power without saying black power, which I think is fantastic because you don’t offend anyone. But when you’ve got three black guys singing and dancing, stereotypes get fed too much and I hate it.”
