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 Corey Graves feels bad for Big E.
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 his After the Bell podcast, Corey Graves discussed the inaugural Day 1 pay-per-view and how the triple threat match between Big E, Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins is likely to steal the show. He also stated that it is unfortunate that Big E has to play second fiddle to Roman Reigns.
“This triple threat at Day 1 is also a huge opportunity for Big E to really become the focus. I do believe that it is truly unfortunate as the WWE Champion Big E is always going to be forced to play second fiddle to Roman Reigns. This is imply for no reason other than Roman Reigns is functioning at such a level that our business has not been able to see in a long time. Roman is that guy who is incredible, putting on bangers after bangers, compelling promos. You have got Paul Heyman, The Bloodline, everything involved in the Universal Championship picture right now. Including Brock Lesnar. It is just next level.”
Bully Ray also criticized Roman Reigns vs Big E’s match for not putting over Big E. Big E also recently stated that people don’t realize just how good Roman Reigns really is. We will have to wait and see how Big E will fare in his match against Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens at WWE Day 1 on January 1st, 2022.
