The two world champions in WWE, are WWE Champion Bobby Lashley on RAW and Universal Champion Roman Reigns on SmackDown. The interviewer asked him who he would be cashing in on at SummerSlam; Lashley, Reigns, or possibly new champion John Cena?

E said all of them are great, but Roman is exceptional. “I feel Roman’s the guy though,” Big E said. “Roman’s the guy in the industry, and if you want to be remembered, if you want to do something cool, something special, that’s a great way to do it. Roman’s on a tear.”

Big E says Roman Reigns has had one of the best title runs in WWE

What Big E is claiming is not wrong. Since his return in last year’s SummerSlam, Reigns have been an indomitable force. The Tribal Chief is on a winning streak and continued his 322 days run at MITB after defeating Edge.

“This is one of the best runs I can remember,” Big E continued. “I feel like he’s definitely hitting his stride in a way that he hasn’t before. You can look at the entire scope of the rest of the industry, and you can determine who you think is the number one guy, who you think is the best, who should be at the very top.”
