The WWE Superstar recently revealed to Bleacher Report how the scene for his win. He revealed that he had a four hour ride from Boston to Brooklyn, and worked to reply all the texts and tweets he received after the title win. He added that it were Ric Flair & AJ Lee‘s messages which shone the most.
I’ll always geek for a Ric Flair text. I got a Ric Flair text a few months ago for Money in the Bank and he texted me again last night. It’s Ric Flair. Getting a Ric Flair text is pretty ridiculous. But you know, there are people who used to work here that did reach out and say some really positive things. AJ Lee, who I still talk to fairly regularly and definitely consider her a friend, reached out and said some really beautiful things. Everyone has just been so incredibly nice.
Big E added that when he gazed at the TD Garden on the WWE backstage as the WWE champion, he found it beautiful. He added that despite it being 11:30 PM, the garden was filled with people.
It’s late. It’s after 11 p.m. by the time I’m done glad-handing and thanking everyone at ringside. It was probably almost 11:30 p.m., but Gorilla was still almost full with people there, talent and producers and so many people. It’s awesome getting love from your peers: people who are great at their craft and work hard, too.
