Big E. Talks Royal Rumble 2022, New Day Entrance Fears, Spear Through The Ropes Risks

Big E. recently appeared as a guest on Barstool Rasslin’ for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the interview, the WWE Champion spoke about who he would like to see win the Royal Rumble next year, the risks involved in his ‘suicide spear’ spot in matches and his iconic New Day entrance routine.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On who he would like to see win the Royal Rumble next year: “I feel like the lazy answer would be The New Day members, so obviously either Kofi or Woods. I’ll go with someone who’s not them. Let’s go, Cesaro should win the Rumble. Man, Cesaro is so damn good in the ring. I would love to see Cesaro get hot again. When he was with Paul Heyman, like that era, the swing era, and he’s still so damn good, but people were so behind him them. He’s a guy who is deserving of that, so I would love to see him get some much-deserved momentum.”

On the risks involved with his trademark ‘suicide spear’ or spear through the ropes spot in matches: “The suicide spear, or the spear through the ropes, that one is a little bit, I’m always fine. Everyone is always worried about me and telling me to stop doing it and like, ’you’re going to break your neck.’ I’m fine on it, but it’s a little unpredictable because you never know exactly how you’re going to land. So that one is a little scarier. That’s a little more dangerous, I guess. I might be working on something. I can’t just be giving it out willy-nilly, but we’ll see.”

On his iconic New Day entrance and fearing that he would say the wrong location: “My fear is getting the wrong city. Especially if we are on tour and it’s like four or five shows in a row. I learned from R-Truth, he once got the city wrong and he didn’t intend to and I’m pretty sure he got booed. So from then, I was scared straight and I said, ‘make sure you know the city.’ There was one time where I might have gotten the wrong number of reigns. Because there was a weird point, I don’t know if you remember when The Street Profits and Kofi Woods exchanged titles? That is like an extra reign, so there was a time where I couldn’t remember how many reigns. So I think I got the number of title reigns wrong once, but that’s about it.”
