Thanks to Ranjit Chahal for his help with some of the following newsbits:
Vince McMahon is said to be very high on Big E Langston these days and is all for pushing him to the top. However, Triple H has suggested that they take things with a slower approach, letting Langston work off Dolph Ziggler for as long as possible. It should be noted that Vince McMahon is not the only strong supporter of Langston. Current WWE Champion John Cena has been "looking out" for Langston ever since he got called up to the main roster. Cena has basically taken Langston under his wing and has been grooming him “every step of the way.” Both Cena and Langston train together on the road and Cena has turned Big E. into a “personal project” to make sure that Langston is a future headliner. Currently, Big E Langston has more support than any other new guy on the roster.
Speaking of John Cena, with The Rock and CM Punk currently out of the picture, Cena has more pull than ever before. There is also believed to be some minor tension between John Cena and Vince McMahon. With Cena feeling ‘neglected” over the last year or so, the company has been doing everything possible the last couple of weeks to keep him happy.
