• Was Big E’s WWE Championship Win A Last Minute Decision?
As seen in the main event of tonight’s RAW, Big E successfully cashed-in his Money In The Bank contract on Bobby Lashley to win the WWE Championship.
Some fans believe that this was a last minute decision to increase RAW ratings, since AEW Dynamite beat WWE RAW in the 18-49 demo ratings by a very small margin last week.
However, that’s not the case.
According to Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast, WWE had tonight’s date pencilled in for Big E’s successful cash-in for a while now.
The only difference was that tonight’s RAW was the original date for the 2021 Draft.
The 2021 Draft is now scheduled to take place on the October 1st edition of SmackDown and the October 4th edition of RAW.
