Big E spoke with Yahoo Sports for a new interview where he discussed a wide range of topics including his current singles run.
Last month, it was revealed that Big E would be getting a singles push for the first time in several years due to injuries suffered by fellow New Day members – Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods.
Kingston suffered an injury while working a tag team tables match at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view while Woods has been on the sidelines for months. Kingston will only be out of action for a few weeks.
“This is all kind of coming out of nowhere. I feel confident that I am ready for this. The interesting thing and weird thing is we don’t have that organic response. I hope people enjoy this run, I hope it’s good and entertaining, I hope all of the people who have clamored for this for years are not disappointed.”
“I always see it as I am a representative of the New Day. The same way that Kofi credited Woods and me and said that when he won it was for all of us, that’s the same feeling I have. This adds to all of our legacies because I don’t get this far, I don’t have this much without those two. I don’t even know if I am around in this company without those two.”
Big E also spoke about The New Day’s platform, kneeling on an episode of Friday Night SmackDown, and more. You can check out the full interview here.
