WWE sold a ton of merchandise for the New Day, and that brought huge royalty checks to all three members. Big E split off from Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston on television, but his bank account is still looking great.
During Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette, Big E opened up about the amount of money he has been able to amass in WWE. Needless to say, he’s very happy about the numbers in his bank account.
“It’s a sickness when I realize that I have the money to do it, but it still pains me to spend it.”
“I guess, sometimes I think I take it too far, but I’m okay with it. [My bank account does look great], it does, but I don’t wanna be that guy, but I’m very happy with the numbers that pop up.”
Renee Paquette mentioned the days when she would check her bank account all the time just to make sure she had enough for bills. Now it’s a much different story for her. She asked Big E if he does the same, and he confirmed that he does. It also keeps him grounded at times when his WWE career seems like a dream.
“I’m as bad as you, if not worse. I check it all the time. All the time. Just to see if it’s real. Sometimes I think that this whole run, my like wrestling career is just a fever dream I’ve had; and that I’m gonna wake up and I’m still in college, I’m still 23 and I don’t know what I’m gonna do with my life.”
“It’s what grounds me. You know how some people have anxiety issues? Like hey, touch this tree or this leaf to ground you to know [this is reality] that’s my grounding is ‘ahh the money, I got the money.”
Big E said that “you gotta invest” your money. Renee Paquette disclosed that she and Jon Moxley were told that they needed to; because they were just letting it sit there. At that point, they started investing their money.
It seems like Big E has a good grip on his future, even if pro wrestling somehow goes away. That doesn’t seem to be happening any time soon. So, he’s likely to remain very happy about the numbers he sees in his band account.
