As seen during Monday’s episode of RAW, Big E. cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase on Bobby Lashley to become the new WWE Champion.
During Wednesday’s edition of WWE’s “The Bump”, Big E. commented on his big victory and how he was happy he got to do it his way. He said,
“That was a lesson we learned with the New Day. There are so many people who wanted us to be more serious or go a certain route, but we believed so much in, not only us as a trio, but in our vision. I very much believed in the vision for myself. I don’t want to have to fit a certain mold or shave off the edges of who I am to fit in a certain box. I felt that I could be myself and achieve everything I wanted to. For me, I’m not someone who thrives on, ‘I told you so.’ I don’t necessarily stand up and point at you haters and ‘I showed you.’ It’s not something I’m overly concerned with. I do feel strongly and had an understanding of who I was and who I wanted to come across as. I’m happy that I got to do it my way.”
