Big E Talks Celebrating His WWE Championship Victory With Kofi Kingston And Xavier Woods

He kept on teasing cashing in his contract in SmackDown and they tried to keep things surprising. He kept on saying that he could cash in on any champion. He even teased cashing in his contract on the WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. But it was quite clear that he would not be cashing in on Roman Reigns since there was no space for him.

Finally, he cashed in his contract on Monday Night RAW. The former champion Bobby Lashley defeated Randy Orton to retain his Championship. After the match, Big E came out and challenged for the Championship. He defeated Lashley and won his first WWE Championship. Even though the whole booking process was criticized badly.

Big E who is also a former two times WWE Intercontinental Champion recently spoke to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated where he talked about celebrating and sharing the moment with his best friends Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston. He said;

“It still would have been meaningful if I had won the title on SmackDown, but to me, this was the way to do it,” he said. “They had to be here. I don’t get here without them. With us, it’s a brotherhood.

“We hurt together, we smile together, this is real. All the toughest times have brought us closer together. I’m grateful for all the valleys and lows with them, because we got to experience all of this together.

“I’m so grateful for everything I have done in WWE, because I had the time to grow. I needed those years of seasoning. I think back to all the times I was so scared to do the right thing, but now it is so comfortable, and so much of that is because of Woods and Kofi. I had no business even getting to WWE, but I’ve been blessed along the way to get to this point, and I’m so thankful.”

WWE Draft 2021 Confirmed To Return In October

WWE Draft 2021 has now been confirmed to take place next month. After a number of speculations and rumors around the date of the event, WWE has finally come up with an official announcement during this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw around the process that will switch things up for the superstars.

A promo aired during the RAW episode from the TD Garden in Boston that officially announced the beginning of the WWE Draft 2021 for the October 1 SmackDown on FOX. It will then be wrapped with the October 4 RAW episode on the USA Network.

WWE Draft 2021 Confirmed To Return In October 1

The October 1 SmackDown was originally scheduled to take place at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, but due to Hurricane Ida, the show was moved to the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland. The October 4 episode of RAW is now scheduled to take place at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

WWE Draft 2021 date was changed in recent times

The October 4 RAW episode, which is the second night of WWE Draft 2021 was also supposed to be the RAW 30th season premiere. But WWE hasn’t confirmed about it, as of this writing. Per the previous reports, the draft season will also begin the King of the Ring and Queen of the Ring tournaments for the WWE male and female superstars. There’s also no official update on the same.

Andrew Zarian of Mat Men wrestling podcast reports that Big E winning the WWE title was initially planned for the original WWE Draft 2021 date of RAW. But then it was preponed to this week as WWE wanted to offer something special to their viewers against Monday Night Football. This was also a last-minute decision to increase RAW ratings since AEW Dynamite beat WWE RAW in the 18-49 demo ratings by a very small margin, last week.

WWE Draft 2021 Confirmed To Return In October 2

Big E was also rumored to be switched to Raw in WWE Draft 2021. However, with the WWE Title win, he is already a part of the red brand as The New Day has reunited on the same brand once again. Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods celebrated with him for the title win as Raw went off the air. The group has been apart since the 2020 WWE Draft.

Possible Reason Behind Big E Becoming New WWE Champion

As seen in the main event of this week’s RAW, Big E successfully cashed-in his Money in The Bank 2021 contract on Bobby Lashley to become the new WWE Champion. Since E is a Smackdown superstar, it was a surprising decision to see the cash-in happening on Raw, especially given the fact that he was rumored to be drafted on the red brand in the upcoming edition of Raw. WWE reportedly changed plans for the cash-in happening, as per the reports following this week’s Raw.

Some fans believe that the title win was indeed a last-minute decision to increase RAW ratings since AEW Dynamite beat WWE RAW in the 18-49 demo ratings by a very small margin, last week.

To keep things interesting on Raw in Boston, Big E captured the WWE Title from Bobby Lashley right after Lashley retained his title over RAW Tag Team Champion Randy Orton in the original main event of the night.

In an update, Andrew Zarian of Mat Men reports that the WWE Title change was initially slated to happen for the original WWE Draft date for RAW but then it was preponed for this week. This was the reason that Lashley vs. Orton was also pulled off Extreme Rules 2021, earlier this week.

Big E is back on WWE Raw brand

WWE confirmed on this week’s RAW that the 2021 WWE Draft will begin with the October 1 SmackDown from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, and will then end with the October 4 RAW from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

That being said, Big E will now be joining the Raw brand meaning that The New Day has reunited on the same brand. Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods celebrated with E to send Raw off the air. The group has disbanded since the 2020 WWE Draft who only made special appearances together since then.

In more news to the title switch, Big E’s title win was also a move to retain WWE’s viewership against Monday Night Football. WWE came up with the teasing as the superstar announced on Twitter that he plans on cashing-in his MITB contract on the show from Boston.

“Let’s let that cat out of the bag…I intend on cashing in my Money in the Bank contract tonight and cashing in to become WWE Champion.”

Then Big E continued hyping up the cash-in throughout the night in order to keep the anticipation high around the show.

Big E Cashes In Money In The Bank 2021 Contract To Become New WWE Champion

Big E has become the new WWE Champion on this week’s WWE Raw by cashing in his Money in the Bank contract, won earlier this year. Since the beginning of the show, E has been teasing his cash-in on social media. Then he proceeded to appear on various segments of Raw with the same intention before finally staying true to his words at the final moments of the show.

The main event of WWE Raw witnessed Bobby Lashley retaining the WWE Title over RAW Tag Team Champion Randy Orton. He nailed a spear on Orton for the pinfall win. Once the match was over, Orton was put through a table to add insult to injury.

As Lashley was tending to celebrate his winning moments, out came Big E to cash-in his Money in the Bank contract and get his title shot, Lashley pointed out that he was hurt from the bygone match but the referee rang the bell and the match eventually started.

Big E focused on the hurt knee of Lashley who managed to counter with a Spear. E kicked out of it and then hit Lashley back with a Big Ending to pick up the pinfall win and win the WWE Championship. The New Day members, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods hit the ring to join the celebration to send the show off-air.

Big E starts his first WWE title reign on Raw

This is Big E’s first run with the WWE Title while Lashley held the title for 195 days, winning it from The Miz on the March 1 edition of RAW. Lashley was supposed to defend the title against Orton in a rematch at Extreme Rules with some sort of stipulations but after the happenings on Raw, the match lineup will certainly go through big changes.

Sports Illustrated spoke with Big E backstage at the TD Garden in Boston (home of this week’s Raw) and asked him why he chose this week’s show for the MITB cash-in. He talked about the history for him with this area while answering the question,

“Why not tonight? Why not the hometown of one Kofi Kingston? My sister lives here, my mom went to BC [Boston College] and Tufts [University]. Boston is a beautiful area, a beautiful town. Why not here, why not now?”

Big E Says He Is Ready To Be The Face Of WWE

Former two times WWE Intercontinental Champion Big E who is the current WWE Mr. Money in the Bank recently said that he was ready to be the face of WWE even though he thought it was not an easy task.

Big E is WWE for over a decade and he has been one of the few home grown talent of the promotion right now. He has never been pushed up to the main events in his entire career. Fans could see how talented he is when he teamed up with Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston to form one of the best tag team in the history of professional wrestling, The New Day.

But his puts always remained up to the Tag Team division and the mid card division. This is the first time when Vince McMahon called him to push up to the main events. It looks like he will soon win a world championship and his Money in the Bank cash in would not fail.

It is reported that he was scheduled to win the Royal Rumble match earlier this year to go on to challenge for a world championship at Wrestlemania. But for some reason the push has been called off and now he won the money in the bank contract. Surely he will be pushed up to the main events soon.

Big E who is a former to two times WWE Intercontinental Champion recently spoke to Bleacher Report where he said that he was ready to be the face of WWE. He said;

“I think that’s a no-brainer. We’ve said this ad nauseum, but The Usos are our greatest rivals. They are an all-time great tag team, very top tier, and I have so much respect for them and what they do. Roman has added a new wrinkle. And even though we ran with them years ago, Roman and Paul Heyman have added a whole new dynamic.

Big E

“I love that idea of faction vs. faction vs. faction, all trying to solidify our place in this industry. Looking at Raw and SmackDown, with the draft coming up soon, there are so many ways we can go as a trio. If we’re working with The Bloodline, we could have an all-time great feud.

“It’s a tall task, but I’m ready. I’ve been beating the drum of meditation over the past year, and it’s helped so much by focusing on the present moment. That’s all that it is for me. So I’m not worried about this gargantuan task of being the face of the company because I’m too focused on doing my very best to be entertaining with whatever I’m given. I’m all about handling what’s right in front of me, and I feel like I can handle whatever is in front of me. I’m ready, and I’ve been ready.”

“I think so, as well. There is history with the story with Bobby, Kofi and Woods, so it’s all there. That would be our chance for retribution, and it just feels right. I loved The Hurt Business. I loved seeing what they were able to do, and the fact that their whole Hurt Business era wasn’t in front of fans, it was in front of the ThunderDome, that’s incredible.

Big E

“Maybe there is a possibility they can put aside whatever squabbles they have and get back together again, then you’d have so many options and possibilities with The New Day and Hurt Business, even six-mans.

“Bobby is on his best run yet. He carries himself like a champion; he looks like a champion. When I first got signed by WWE in 2009, I remember watching a match with him and Cena over and over again. He was someone I wanted to work like someday, so it’s an honor to have Bobby speak of us like that. He’s on an incredible run, and there is definitely a lot of meat there to chew on.”

Spoiler On Big E’s WWE Money In The Bank 2021 Contract Cash-In

Big E won the Men’s Money In The Bank 2021 contract which gives him an opportunity to have a championship match opportunity. He’s scheduled to successfully cash it in to become a World Champion for the first time ever in the WWE. The time and place of this title match will be determined by him, down the road. That being said, the question is when he’s likely to do it.

Plus, there are speculations among the fans as they wonder who might become the victim of Big E when the MITB contract cash-in happens. According to the Wrestling Observer’s reports, Roman Reigns is scheduled to enter WrestleMania 38 as the Universal Champion. So, it makes sense that the future cash-in should take place on Bobby Lashley who will drop the WWE Championship to the former New Day member.

There’s also a possibility that Roman Reigns can still lose the title and win it back before WrestleMania 38 but a short title reign for Big E might not be ideal for his career. He’s one of the brightest stars of the company who should have time to establish his legacy. So, cashing in on Lashley makes more sense, especially with the storyline that Lashley absolutely dominated E’s New Day brother Kofi Kingston at Money In The Bank 2021.

Big E to cash-in MITB contract on Lashley

Here’s the report provided by the source which indicates that E should be the one to end Lashley’s title reign following Summerslam,

“Given that he has to win, that leaves right now either Reigns or Lashley. The problem is with Reigns scheduled right now as champion for Mania, yes, they can do a quick switch, but in that scenario, yes, Big E gets his pop and ‘You deserve it’ chants, but a short-term face first title win isn’t a good thing either.”

At present, Bobby Lashley is done with a successful title defense against Goldberg at Summerslam 2021. Since this match marks the end of Goldberg’s obligations with WWE for this year, it’s likely that the former WCW franchise player won’t end the All-Mighty’s title reign. Big E is likely to arrive on Raw via WWE Draft scheduled after Summerslam 2021 after which the cash-in will take place as he would begin his first world title reign.

Goldberg Says The Future Of WWE Is Bright, Praises Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, Ricochet and Big E

The former three times WWE World Champion Goldberg who is challenging Bobby Lashley for the WWE championship at SummerSlam recently said WWE has a bright future. She also praised the likes of Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, Ricochet and Big E.

With every WWE fan who are losing hope with the promotion, WWE Hall of Famer is trying to look at the brighter side of the promotion. With WWE not being able to book good storylines and proper feuds even after having a house full of talented individuals, fans are losing hope on the promotion.

A lot of WWE fans have already switched to their newest Rival promotion, the AEW because of the mentioned errors. It did not remain as engaging as it used to be. A lot of critics and fans have already started to say that Vince McMahon is killing the promotion with his terrible ideas.

But there are of course some bright sides of the promotion as well like it has the most talented roster in the world of professional wrestling. Indeed, WWE has the most talented individuals working under them. If utilised properly they can carry the promotion for ages.

Goldberg who is a former three times WWE World Champion recently spoke with WWE India where he said WWE has a bright future. She also praised the likes of Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, Ricochet and Big E. He said;

“You know, I think it’s been written a number of times about my respect for Big E, that I have. I got to say that Ricochet is one of the most talented talents that I’ve ever seen, in any profession, not just the wrestling business.

“The things that he can bring to the ring… Sasha Banks, what she can do is unbelievable. There are so many Superstars that are on the cusp of greatness right now. Becky Lynch, see what she does, obviously she’s kind of a part-timer sometimes. It’s hard to really put people in a perfect category that describes their job description.

“But there is a plethora of talent coming up through the ranks in the WWE. Keith Lee, the kid is a monster. There are so many that I can only list those few, because there are so many that are right behind them. But I think it’s a fresh time for the wrestling business, and a fresh time for the WWE to pull to the front and center of the business.”

Mr. Money in the Bank Big E who is also a former two times WWE Intercontinental Champion recently participated in a Q&A with SPORTBible where he made a shocking claim on the former two times WWE Champion The Miz. He said The Miz was “awful” when he first met him. He said;

“I guess Roman, he’s pretty [narcissistic] and that’s pretty obvious from the way he carries himself. The Miz is a great choice, it’s hard to not think of Smackdown people because that’s who I’ve been around with lately.

Big E

“You might be surprised, he’s mellowed as he’s gotten older and definitely got better. But he was pretty insufferable when I first met him and I’ve told him this – just very unpleasant to be around and very obnoxious.

“He would do things almost like an 8-year-old. I promise you, he legit did the ‘I’m not touching you’ with his finger an inch from my face and I like being unbothered. He’s gotten better which is why he didn’t come to mind but The Miz was fairly awful when I first met him.”

Big E has been really successful in his solo career since joining WWE SmackDown and splitting from his teammates Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods.

He won the Money in the Bank ladder match this year. He was even schedule to win the Royal Rumble match this year which was stalled for unknown reasons. WWE was determined to push him because of his excellent wrestling and mic skills and he rightfully deserved it.

It is rumoured that he will catch in his contract very soon and he will successfully win a World Championship. There is even rumour that he would switch to Raw to reunite with the New Day and catch in the contract on the WWE champion, rumoured to be Bobby Lashley. Moreover, he is destined to be pushed.

During a recent episode of Feel The Power, former two times WWE Intercontinental Champion Big E recently expressed his fear of joining Friday Night Smackdown. He said;

“That’s my secret fear. That’s my secret fear, that you guys are at Raw just getting real close. By the time we come back around to all three of us being on the same show, it’s the two of ya’ll just having secret meetings and conversations.

Big E

“It’s not as exasperating because it’s only one show a week. It’s not like, ‘You’re not traveling with Kofi and Woods for five shows a week,’ that would be more drastic. Then I realized, after a few weeks, it’s little things like if someone says something and we’re tapping each other or side-eying.

“I love those non-verbal cues where we’re connected without saying a word. Those little things to get you through the day because call time is several hours before the show. It isn’t the same.”
