“I’ve just been a fan of so many people. So I grew up a massive Goldberg fan. Goldberg was my guy when I was a kid. But, you know, I got to train under, for a couple of weeks, Vader, may he rest in peace. He [Vader] came down to FCW and helped train us. I love Vader as a kid, Ron Simmons, Scott Steiner.”

“I just loved the massive muscular dudes who are athletes and move quickly. Those are the guys that I looked up to. So, it’s been so cool, but I’ve never met Scott Steiner. But all those guys, I was able to have conversations with, talk to, kind of pick their brains a little bit and get advice from.”

“And they’ve all been incredible. Well, they say, ‘don’t meet your heroes’, but it is really cool when you get to meet your heroes and [they don’t] disappoint you.”

Who will Big E cash-in on?

Big E has the opportunity of a lifetime on his hands with the briefcase. He can cash in on any brand, anywhere. Just because he is on the SmackDown roster doesn’t mean he cannot cash in on Bobby Lashley. He clarified that no titleholder is safe from his intentions of cashing in.
