Big E.

Booker T Reflects On Big E.’s First Run With WWE Title After It Ends At WWE Day 1

What did Booker T think of Big E.’s run with the WWE Championship?

The first-ever WWE Championship reign of Big E. ended at the WWE Day 1 pay-per-view with the veteran Superstar dropping the title to Brock Lesnar. With Big E.’s reign now in the rear-view mirror, Booker T decided to give his thoughts on it as a whole on the latest edition of his Hall of Fame podcast.

Featured below is an excerpt from the show where the aforementioned two-time WWE Hall of Fame legend touches on this topic with his thoughts.

“I thought Big E had a good run and I thought the championship made him better. It was almost one of those things where I always say that when you win the title, it makes you a better performer, normally, just because you know that you’re the World Heavyweight Champion. You walk a different way. You feel a different way. I don’t know what it is, but that effect definitely got a hold of Big E, and you can see him falling into that role as being the WWE Champion. He believed he should have been the WWE Champion. I thought he did a great job. We didn’t get a chance to see Big E have a whole lot of classic matches as champion or anything like that, but I think that’s where Big E has a chance to come back and capture it again and grow. I think Big E is going to be in this business for at least 5 to perhaps 8-10 more years, maybe, in this business, not the WWE, but in the business. He has a chance to grow over this time and become the performer he wants to be.”
