Big E’s journey to the top of WWE has been one full of hurdles and obstacles at every step of the way. After a solid run in NXT, Big E made his way to the main roster but was eventually lost in the shuffle. It seems Big E gave some huge props to Roman Reigns.

While Big E is certainly one of the most positive people in the company, even he isn’t immune to suffering from crushing lows during his career which made him feel lost.

Big E squared off against Roman Reigns in the main event of the WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view in a champion vs champion match. The match was certainly a great one, to say the least. In the end, The Tribal Chief reigned supreme as he defeated the WWE Champion.

While speaking to Sports Illustrated, Big E talked about duking it out with Roman Reigns. Big E stated that people do not realize just how good Roman Reigns truly is inside the squared circle.


His strength and athleticism are real. He even got me up in that powerbomb. I thought he was going to bail on it, but he had that second surge to get me up. Until you’re in the ring with him, people just don’t fully realize how good he is. He’s an incredible performer on an incredible run, and you can’t take away anything from him.”

Big E is currently feuding with Seth Rollins on Monday Night RAW. On the other hand, Roman Reigns’ next challenger is likely to be revealed on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown.
