Big E talks about being single and always wanting to be by himself

WWE Intercontinental Champion Big is the guest on the latest episode of “Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette.”

Big E talks about bringing Black Lives Matter to WWE, being single, and much more. Here are a couple of highlights from the show:

Big E talked about working with Wale:

The nice part with us being friends is it was as simple as me reaching out to him and saying, ‘Hey, is this something that you might be interested in doing?’  Then we talked to Neil in WWE music just to make sure if we can do this.  Then we got it done.  It was like some back and forth.  For the first track they sent, this was before Wale hopped on, they did a demo version without him to get an idea.  They didn’t have the rapper come in until 40 seconds in.  With an entrance song, sometimes you might only get the first 20-30 seconds, so I wanted him in as quickly as possible.  We tinkered with it for a little bit.  It was dope to have someone who I’ve been a huge fan of even before anyone cared to know my name and also a friend.  I know I’m biased, but he’s a sensational wrapper.  He’s really good at what he does.  He’s incredible.  He’s one of the best ever if you ask me.  I love his music, so that was cool to get him on and hopefully we will get him again.  I still don’t know how we got him for that rap battle (New Day vs The Usos), which was so ridiculous.  That was one of those segments that so easily could have been a trainwreck.  But, the three of us (New Day) have no idea how to rap and have no business rapping, but Woods pitched the idea and then I was like, ‘Can we get Wale involved as a moderator?’  Somehow people said yes to all these ideas.  I have no idea how, but people said yes.  The Usos, I told them they should put out an EP or something.  They’re good.”

Big E said he has discovered why he likes to be alone in his downtime and if he is currently dating:

“It’s a lot easier to say, ‘Oh, I’m single’ when you’re 24 because it’s ok.  A lot of people are single when they’re 24.  When you’re 34 and you’re a perpetual bachelor, you kind of get weird looks, like, ‘What’s wrong with you?’  But, I discovered this thing, it’s called attachment theory.  The theory states that you either form secure bonds with your parents as small children and you have your emotional needs met, or if you don’t, there are three different ways that children insecurely attach and it affects the way they build relationships and bonds later in life.  Just a few months ago, I saw it as a dismissive avoidant attachment, is me.  I read the symptoms and it blew my mind.  This is me.  I’ve found out what’s wrong with me.  It’s essentially characterized by people who say, ‘Oh, I’m not the marrying type or I can do things on my own or are super independent.’  That’s a lot of me.  When you don’t have your emotional needs met as a small child, you tend to, just like, ‘Hey, I can meet my own needs.’  That explains why I am perpetually alone and I genuinely like being alone.  I don’t sit at home and pine to be around people all the time.  I’m an introvert by nature.  I have no idea how I ended up as an entertainer.  It makes no sense because I just always want to be by myself.  But that’s me and that’s where I’m at with that.  Once you can realize why you are the way you are, it can allow you to break certain patterns and I suppose if a relationship is in the cards for me, so be it.  But I’m also starting to fall in love with me.  I’m open to it, but I’m still a work in progress with that stuff I guess.”
