It was a top pick for many people, and it came to fruition when Big E picked up the win in the men’s Money In The Bank match this past Sunday.
Speaking with DAZN, the former New Day member has talked about the moment in the match where it started to become a blur and the high he got from the moment.
I felt like as soon as I started to get up on my feet and slide in, from then until the end of the segment till they got me out of there, it’s a kind of drug, a kind of high that is unmatched.
I hope everyone gets to experience that, not necessarily in pro wrestling if you’re not a pro wrestler, but whatever it is in your field, whatever it is that gives you that kind of feeling. It’s incredible and that’s why we do it.
He was also backstage for the moment John Cena made his return to the WWE Universe.
Big E talked about the pop, and could only make one similar comparison and even then he was at ringside rather than backstage.
Can I be a bit of a mark right here for a second? That Cena pop was one of the loudest I can remember.
There are moments where you know something’s gonna come. So you kind of stick your head out, and you can kind of see the fans. I wish I had known, but I was back doing interviews and whatnot afterwards. But I watched it back. It was the loudest pop, and I said for a while was when Dolph (Ziggler) won Money in the Bank. But I was at ringside. This one might be the loudest pop I’ve ever heard since I’ve been here. They were very excited for John.
The question now is who Big E will cash in his Money In The Bank briefcase on, and when.
Whilst he doesn’t answer when (because to be fair, why would you?) he has earmarked the current Universal Champion as his target and explained his reasoning.
I feel Roman’s the guy. Roman’s the guy in the industry, and if you want to be remembered, if you want to do something cool, something special, that’s a great way to do it. Roman’s on a tear. This is one of the best runs I can remember. I feel like he’s definitely hitting his stride in a way that he hasn’t before.
You can look at the entire scope of the rest of the industry, and you can determine who you think is the number one guy, who you think is the best, who should be at the very top. I think it’s not that difficult to make an argument for Roman being number one across all brands, across all boards. Beating him means that whoever beats him for that title, it’s going to be memorable. It’s going to mean something, and why not me?
Although we now know Reigns will be tied up wrestling Cena at SummerSlam, no doubt Big E will be watching that extremely closely – possibly right behind the curtain.
