Big E continues to be one of the most cherished superstars in WWE, currently absent due to a severe neck injury. Despite ongoing recovery, Big E has expressed his willingness to take on various roles within WWE, including the possibility of serving as an announcer.

Big E has been sidelined since the March 11, 2022 episode of Friday Night SmackDown, where he sustained broken neck. As it approaches two years since the injury, Big E has remained active with numerous appearances on various shows during his time away from in-ring competition.

While on hiatus from in-ring competition, Big E has stayed involved with WWE, participating in Next In Line tryouts and serving as a panelist on the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff event.

While speaking with What Culture, Big E was asked about his openness to taking on more hosting and speaking roles, such as announcing. Big E made it clear he is definitely interested in doing such roles as he wants to stay involved in the company.


“I think about my time starting off in the company, by no means was I considered a good talker. It took time for me to get more comfortable and what not. For me to be able to stand beside Punk [CM Punk], Cole [Michael Cole], Pat [Pat McAfee], all these guys who are great and natural talkers was really great. I appreciate all the positive feedback. It’s something that I definitely would consider. I still want to be involved with the company, regardless of what happens with my in-ring career moving forward.”

”I’ve been with the company 15 years. 15 years of my life that I’ve been signed with this company, a job I took on a whim and it’s been such an integral part of my life. It’s definitely something I’m open to. There are some really great broadcasters. Vic [Vic Joseph] has done such an incredible job. It was speculated when things were getting shuffled around that maybe he gets moved up to Raw. I definitely want to make sure that I’m not in a position where I’m trying to leapfrog anyone who deserves opportunities or anyone who has been grinding at it. If it makes sense and there are other panels or opportunities to come in, I’d love to.”

”One of the issues is, the bar was set to high. My first time coming in was Vegas with this Rock thing. We have a lot of work to do to make sure every one (after) is as fulfilling and enjoyable. I’m definitely open to it. It means a lot to see all the positive feedback.”

Big E also recently addressed The New Day adding more members while he remains absent. Big E is currently focused on various aspects of his life, and that holds the utmost significance for him at the moment. Regardless of whether his time in the ring continues, fans will always acknowledge and celebrate the accomplishments he has achieved throughout his career.
