“It’s the moments that I really treasure. And, I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about the moment. I go out, my music, that crowd has seen me dozen times. To have people, your peer, the fans, and these two jacka**es [pointing towards Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston]. It means the world to me, so I appreciate it for sure.”

The WWE Champion humbly talks about the time used to fight the authority to get some TV time. He also said that he is grateful that nothing in his career was handed out to him, and he had to earn it.

“I will always remember the three of us, fighting to get on TV and we’ve been able to do so many incredible [things]. I’m glad that it took so long because it feels earned. I’m glad that I wasn’t handed things right away. That I had time to grow, to do all the things we had chances to do.” Big E said.
