At Sunday night’s WWE Monday in the Bank pay-per-view event, Big E. won the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match to earn a future WWE title shot. Following the show, Big E. spoke with Megan Morant about his journey to capture the briefcase and what it means for his career. He said,
“It signifies for me….it’s just been a lot of years of working and trying to be in this position to be at the very top and feeling like you know, we’ve been crowned the best tag team of all-time, but like that’s how they see me. That’s my position in this company, and that’s it. But for me, to show that I can run with the ball, that means everything, and I’ll say it until I’m on my death bed – I don’t get there without Kofi and Woods. I don’t get there without The New Day. I’m thankful, man, I’m thankful.
The work just starts here. The work….just starts here, man. There’s no resting on my laurels, there’s no thinking I’ve made it. You got the briefcase, but I’m not a World Champion yet. You put that on my resume and you can never take that away from me. You can never take away World Champion from me. Put that on my epitaph.”
