New WWE Champion Big E recently discussed his massive title win and first run at the top of the company on Monday Night Raw.
The New Day member has been an Intercontinental, NXT and multiple-time Tag Team Champion, but his win over Bobby Lashley last week was a major leap for the powerhouse performer.
Big E cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase to become the new WWE Champion, and he recently discussed how he got to the highest point in his career thus far.
Appearing on WWE’s The Bump, the new WWE Champion discussed how he got to the biggest moment in his career ‘his way.’
“That was a lesson we learned with the New Day. There are so many people who wanted us to be more serious or go a certain route, but we believed so much in, not only us as a trio, but in our vision. I very much believed in the vision for myself. I don’t want to have to fit a certain mold or shave off the edges of who I am to fit in a certain box. I felt that I could be myself and achieve everything I wanted to. For me, I’m not someone who thrives on, ‘I told you so.’ I don’t necessarily stand up and point at you haters and ‘I showed you.’ It’s not something I’m overly concerned with. I do feel strongly and had an understanding of who I was and who I wanted to come across as. I’m happy that I got to do it my way.”
