• Big E Is Taking On A Huge Responsibility After Becoming WWE Champion
During a recent interview with Cincy360, WWE Champion Big E talked about finally becoming a World Champion, and noted that he is now taking the responsibility of RAW’s quality and viewership.
Here’s what he said:
“In my mind, RAW is my show. That WWE Championship means that RAW is my show. I’m the king of the hill there. Right now, I’ve been kind of going back and forth with SmackDown a little bit, but I anticipate that will be over soon.
I want to focus on making RAW the best show it can be, and I take pride in that. A lot of times the viewership, the quality of the show is on the WWE Champion. That’s a big marker for having a really good reign.
RAW will be my focus, but you never know how things can shake out here. It’s a topsy-turvy world. There’s a chance that I might show up [more] on SmackDown, but my focus is on RAW right now.”
Tonight’s RAW will kick off with Big E defending the WWE Championship against Bobby Lashley.
