Big E Recalls “Weird” Times Wrestling Without A Crowd



On a recent edition of the “Sarah O’Connell Show,” Big E looked back on wrestling during the COVID-19 pandemic when there were no fans in attendance. He said,

“[The atmosphere was] very weird. Really the foundation of our industry, of our business, is really about crowd interaction. You can have an hour match, but if no one is making a sound, if they’re sitting on their hands, you failed. That’s always what we have been taught as pro wrestlers.

“It’s about engaging the crowd, it’s about making them cheer. It’s about making them boo. Now, we’re in this environment where that’s not possible. We just have screens in front of us, and now you’re also worried about COVID, which is ravaging the world. It was a very interesting time.”

Big E added that he and other Superstars worked hard to compensate for the lack of crowd by coming up with unique ideas that made use of the unique atmosphere.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Big E captured his second Intercontinental Championship by dethroning Sami Zayn on the Christmas Day 2020 edition of WWE SmackDown.
