• “I didn’t feel like I had the best reign” – Former WWE Champion
Before his possible career-ending injury, Big E got the opportunity to have a run as the WWE Champion.
During an interview with PopCulture, The New Day member had the following to say about his only World Title reign:
“It was a great learning experience for me. It was one of those things where if I’m being honest, I wanted more. I didn’t feel like I had the best reign.
I feel like there was a lot of meat left on the bone. A lot more that we could have done there.
For me, I was really fortunate and really blessed to have that opportunity and really grateful for it as well.”
Big E also noted that his run as WWE Champion really prepared him to handle media appearances:
“Really feeling like I’m meant to do this. For me, in many ways, even though I wanted more out of the reign and felt like a lot more could have been accomplished in-ring and on TV, SmackDown, RAW.
As much as I have those feelings, I’m also so grateful for the opportunity and so grateful for so many doors that have opened because of that run.”
