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.”
