Big E reveals he pushed the WWE Management for his dream match with Goldberg

Recently, Big E talked to Sportsnet about being a WWE Champion and his dream match. He revealed that he pushed the WWE management for a dream match at Crown Jewel.

He said, “We’ve been in a top act in many ways (with the New Day) but there are so many singles matchups out there that are fresh for me. I was trying to make some noise for this Goldberg match at Crown Jewel, but that clearly (didn’t happen). It would have been really full circle. He was my childhood hero and idol, and I’ve spoken effusively about that.” [h/t Sporkskeeda]

Goldberg’s match with Big E would be the next we could expect. At Crown Jewel 2021, he defeated Bobby Lashley to end his feud with a shattering spear from the WWE stage. The iconic record between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series is one of the iconic matches defeating Lesnar in 1 minute and 26 seconds.

Later, Big E also talked about his WWE Championship reign. He expects it to be a long run, and he assures fans he will try his best to keep the title around his waist.
