“Obviously Roman [Reigns], to me, is at the very pinnacle of our industry. To me, he’s number 1. He stands alone right now. I didn’t know that, apparently, you don’t really need to qualify to get that match [against Roman], you could just run in after you’ve been off for months and attack people to get title opportunities. [laughs]. I didn’t know that, but I do love Edge. He deserves it. No Edge shade.”

“Obviously, beating Roman for that title, that makes you the man in my estimation so that’s the one I wanna go after.”

Furthermore, he revealed that his former faction member, Kofi Kingston, could become the next WWE Champion following Money in the Bank. However, he will not go after Kingston, and he’s not touching the WWE Championship title.

Can Big E defeat Roman Reigns?

Roman Reigns is definitely the top dog of WWE SmackDown. He has been the Universal Champion since his return in 2020. Reigns has feuded with Superstars such as Daniel Bryan, Jey Uso, Edge, and Cesaro at different PPVs, and emerged victorious every time.
