During an appearance on WWE’s The Bump recently, Big E gave a shout-out to a prominent NXT Manager. It is refreshing to see he still keeps a check on the black and gold brand.

Shout out to my boy Malcolm Bivens, by the way,” the former IC champion started. “Just killing it. I think Malcolm, by the way, doesn’t get enough love. To me, he has all the potential to be one of the greatest managers of all time.”

“He has an incredible personality, a Twitter God as well! So I’m gonna stop talking about myself very briefly to talk about Bivens. It’s cool to see him doing cool things.” 

Bivens signed with WWE in 2019. He has previously managed the likes of NXT North American Bronson Reed, Commander Azeez. He started the short-lived Bivens Enterprises with Rinku Singh and Saurav Gujjar.

Bivens currently manages Tyler Rust on NXT. Recently, both of them joined The Diamond Mine stable along with Hideki Suzuki and Roderick Strong, with Bivens as their manager.

Big E reveals his goals for the summer

Alongside competing for the Intercontinental title, Big E has also qualified for the MITB match. However, both of these remain equally important in his eyes.

The Power House of Positivity plans to win the Intercontinental Championship by SummerSlam, and have the Money in the Bank contract with him as well. “That’ll be a great time to reclaim it. Why not SummerSlam? Picture someone walking around [with the title and the briefcase]. That’s the plan.”

I wanna be so heavy going to the ring with titles with briefcases that if I do lose, I’d have the excuse that it was all the briefcases and the titles that weighed me down. Anyway, I wanna be draped. Just litter me with stuff,” he joked.

In the same episode, Big E also revealed his world title goal if he wins the MITB match. He would definitely challenge Universal Champion Roman Reigns after he wins the contract.

Do you think Big E will succeed in his mission? Let us know in the comments below.
