He said (h/t: Wrestling Inc.),” In my mind, RAW is my show. That WWE Championship means that RAW is my show. I’m the king of the hill there. Right now, I’ve been kind of going back and forth with SmackDown a little bit, but I anticipate that will be over soon. I want to focus on making RAW this best show it can be, and I take pride in that.”

Big E further claimed that the quality and viewership of the show rest on the shoulders of the WWE Champion.

“A lot of times the viewership, the quality of the show is on the WWE Champion. That’s a big marker for having a really good reign,” He added.

He said, “It forced us all to grow, the tag team unit. Woods doing more singles stuff, Kofi doing more singles stuff on his own as well, too. But it also forced me to go, ‘Alright, I’m out here on my own. I have to make the best of it.’ I got more comfortable performing alone and finding what my path is, how I wanted to come across. There was a blessing in disguise with us being on different shows, for sure.

“Now that we’re all back together, it allows people to be excited again about us being on the same show regularly again, but it also allows us to take things that we learned when we were apart from each other and now bring it back to the group.”
