Former eight times WWE Tag Team Champion Big E recently said that he wants to show his serious side to the WWE universe. Big E is signed with WWE for over a decade and he is also a two times WWE Intercontinental Champion.
When Big E started his main roster WWE career, he was portrayed as a serious heel. Even though he failed to get much attention from the WWE universe in his previous gimmick. But he showed some excellent in ring abilities which are came his first WWE Intercontinental Championship run back in 2013.
Big E Wants To Show His Serious Side
Later, he teamed up with Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods to form one of the best stables in professional wrestling history, The New Day. Since forming the New Day, the serious side of his WWE character is long gone. He has been portrayed as a fun loving happy guy just like his partners Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston.
From last year he is going through a solo Run after WWE decided to draft him to Samckdown and his partners remained at RAW. Even after splitting from his partners, he did not quit his New Day persona, even he uses the same theme music.
The former two times WWE Intercontinental Champion Big E recently spoke to Ryan Satin’s Out Of Character podcast where he said that he wants to show his serious side to the WWE universe. He said;
“One of the things I liked is being able to show a serious side. As much as I enjoy being funny and making people laugh, being able to show a certain intensity — a few months ago we were really in the midst of a program leading into WrestleMania where things got to a real boil as far as intensity is concerned.
“I was appreciative of that opportunity where I didn’t have to be always smiling or not caring about losing and putting on a smile and going out there. I liked being able to show that different side.”
