WWE Champion Big E was interviewed on “Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette” to talk about his big title win. He also talked about what it was like to beat a fellow Black World Champion in Bobby Lashley, possibly getting his match with Goldberg and more.
Here are some highlights:
Big E talking about The New Day vs The Bloodline:
“I wish we had more time and more build, and hopefully we’ll be able to revisit it because obviously, it didn’t really conclude. I’m not saying it was bad, but I hope we can do it again. We have such a great history with The Usos. I have so much respect for those guys. I think they are easily, and I hate compiling lists of who’s the greatest, but they’re definitely in the conversation for greatest tag team of all time. They’re incredible. Roman is doing absolutely incredible work. The stuff he’s been doing the last year has been incredible.”
Big E talking about his reaction to the crowd chanting for Brodie Lee last week on Raw and his thoughts about him during the day:
“People were chanting his name, I had a moment, I looked at Woods afterwards, and I looked at Austin. I’m getting chills thinking about it, and I had chills then. It was one of those lines that I didn’t need anyone to react to. Sometimes you throw out a line just for you and for people at home. I didn’t know the people would get it, but man, it was so heartwarming and almost overwhelming to hear those chants, and to know that people knew who I was talking about, and that his memory is still alive.
I also love, and this is a small thing too, but I never called him Luke. Maybe in promos, but he was always Brodie. You’re not talking about this pro wrestler who died. When you’re chanting ‘Brodie’, that’s my friend. That’s my buddy. That’s my brother, and I appreciated that so much. That meant a lot. I just want to continue to keep his memory alive and that we continue to remember him. I think what helps when I’m sad or down about him is he was so damn funny. I have so many memories, pictures, and videos. There’s a lot to smile about with him and his beautiful family, his incredible family, Amanda, and those two crazy boys of hers. They’re still here and they’re still thriving. For me, I know Brodie was one of the first people to come up to Kofi and congratulate him when he won the title. I know he would have done the same for me.”
