• “I really feel like my momentum has slowed since WrestleMania” – SmackDown Wrestler
During an appearance on this week’s WWE The Bump, former Intercontinental Champion Big E talked about competing in his 1st ever Money In The Bank Ladder Match later this month.
Below are the highlights from the interview:
On being a part of the Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match this year:
“I’m excited! There’s a lot of things I’ve realized I haven’t done because I have been with The New Day for so long, and I haven’t done a lot of singles stuff. I actually have never been in a Money in the Bank match, so that should be dope.”
On how his momentum has slowed down since WrestleMania 37:
“Yeah, it’s me and Apollo damn near every week, you know. I will say as much as we butted heads, Apollo Crews, I think, is an incredible talent. To beat a guy like him with [Commander] Azeez at ringside means something.
So, for me, this is about getting on track. I really feel like my momentum has slowed since WrestleMania, and now, it’s time to get that back going.
That’s the beautiful thing with the Money in the Bank match. You can be ice cold going in. You could have zero momentum. You win that briefcase, and your fortunes can turn just like that, so I’m hoping to ignite some things for myself and make some opportunities.”
On Kofi Kingston facing Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship at the Money In The Bank 2021 PPV:
“Look, man, Kofi has been holding it down, Kofi and [Xavier] Woods. Much respect to Kofi and Woods. Woods is out there killing it in a Hell in a Cell, you know, it didn’t go his way. Those two doing their thing on RAW has boosted my spirits and has inspired me.
Kofi has been in this position before. He’s been chomping at the bit for another opportunity, so it’s much deserved, man. Those guys have been holding RAW down in many ways. You could argue they’re the MVPs of RAW.
I know Kofi isn’t going to waste his opportunity. This means a lot to him. He’s a guy who never had the ‘I made it’ feeling. He’s never rested on his laurels. He’s never coasted. So, I know he’s going to bring it, and I’m excited to see what he does. Either way, I know it’s going to be a historic night for ya boys.”
