Big E was one of Kofi Kingston’s biggest supporters through KofiMania. If you ask Kingston it could very well be Big E’s time soon enough.
In an interview with CBS Sports, Kofi Kingston addressed the idea of Big E eventually becoming WWE Champion. He said it’s only a matter of time before it happens for Big E as well.
“I think that when you talk to E, he’s very modest about it. He says he just shows up to work and does what he’s supposed to do. I think we all know, and we wouldn’t be having this conversation if we didn’t know E’s potential to be able to carry the load. He’s phenomenal on the mic, he’s funny, he can be intense, he’s well-spoken. He’s just an all-around good dude.”
“I think it’s just a matter of time. When the time is right, he will definitely be somebody that can take the bull by the horns and lead the charge.”
“We’ll see, we’ll see what happens as time goes on but, yeah, E is definitely a guy that is more than capable of being the face of the company and lead. Myself and Woods will be right there beside him, supporting him the whole time and holding him up. That has always been the philosophy of our group — always to push our brothers to the top. We’ll see what happens, we never know. When it happened to me, it wasn’t supposed to. Who knows? We’ll see.”
Big E might be humble until it happens for him which is a good plan. It’s hard to deny that WWE sees big things for all three members of the New Day because they each received the same five-year contracts.
