Bobby Lashley defended his WWE Championship against Randy Orton in the main event of Monday Night RAW. Lashley successfully retained his title but his luck simply ran out after that.
Big E came out and cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase as promised. Making use of his opportunity, Big E thwarted Bobby Lashley and managed to beat him for the WWE Championship.
While speaking with Kevin Patrick, Big E was asked about how feelings after finally climbing to the top of the mountain. Big E stated that it felt good to live his dream as he earned it.
Uhh, good. Good. It’s hard to contextualize something like this. Man, it’s the moments, I think that I really treasure, and man, I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about the moment I go out, the music hits, and that crowd, even though they’ve seen me a dozen times tonight, man, like, to have people, your peers, to have fans…
I think the dream for anyone in any vocation or craft, or anything, is getting to do really cool things, to get to the top of your craft, but to do it with your best friends, and you know… I always tell this story because I never wanna forget… I will always remember the three of us just fighting to get on TV. And man, we’ve been able to do so many cool, incredible things, and I got to grow so much as a person and as a performer because of these guys, and I could not have written a better career for myself. I’m glad in many ways that it took so long because it feels earned. I’m glad that I wasn’t handed things right away, that I had time to grow, to do all the things that we had chances to do. So, I got to live the dream.
Now that Big E is the WWE Champion, a new era of Monday Night RAW has begun. It will be interesting to see how he will fare as the champion in the coming months.
