Big E to commemorate the lives of Botham Jean & Freddie Gray with armband on SmackDown tonight

The New Day have been using armbands to call for justice for black men and women wrongly murdered by police and to commemorate their lives. Today, Big E revealed who he would honor on this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown:

Botham Jean was killed by off duty police officer Amber Guyger in his own home. She claimed she entered his home believing it was hers and shot him because she thought he was a burglar.

Freddie Gray was arrested and fell into a coma while being transported by police. He would die one week later due to spinal cord injuries.
