Big E is undoubtedly one of the top Superstars on Friday Night Smackdown and had been on the receiving end of a push for the past few months as a singles competitor.
It would see him win the WWE Intercontinental Championship last year and he had a solid run as the champion before losing it to Apollo Crews at WrestleMania 37.
At the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view, Big E took part in the Money In The Bank ladder match. Against all odds, Big E won the match and become Mr. Money In The Bank.
While speaking to DAZN, Big E was asked if he decided to cash in the briefcase at SummerSlam, would it be Roman Reigns or Bobby Lashley. Big E stated that Roman Reigns is the ‘number one guy’ and cashing in on Reigns is the way to go.
“Those are all great options. I feel Roman’s the guy though. Roman’s the guy in the industry, and if you want to be remembered, if you want to do something cool, something special, that’s a great way to do it. Roman’s on a tear. This is one of the best runs I can remember. I feel like he’s definitely hitting his stride in a way that he hasn’t before.
You can look at the entire scope of the rest of the industry, and you can determine who you think is the number one guy, who you think is the best, who should be at the very top. I think it’s not that difficult to make an argument for Roman being number one across all brands, across all boards. Beating him means that whoever beats him for that title, it’s going to be memorable. It’s going to mean something, and why not me?”
Roman Reigns successfully retained his WWE Universal Championship against Edge at the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view. We will have to wait and see if Big E will ever cash his Money In The Bank briefcase on Roman Reigns.
