WWE Champion Big E. was a guest on the The Ariel Helwani Show as he figured he would be holding the Money in the Bank briefcase longer than he had originally expected. Big E. said,
“I thought it was going to be long and drawn out. At one point, it looked like I was going to be doing stuff with Corbin. Then there was the stuff with Logan Paul, so you think maybe that’s the direction things are going for a while. As you know, it’s a topsy turvy company of ours and things change all the time, so you never know. You also have Otis, who had the briefcase and didn’t end up becoming World Champion. That’s happened in other instances. You never know if that’s going to be you too. I’m glad that was not the case for me.”
Big E. cashed in his briefcase on the September 13th edition of WWE Monday Night RAW, defeating then champion Bobby Lashley to capture his first major WWE Championship.
