Big E spoke with Vegas Seven to promote the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view. Here are the highlights.
On who came up with time machine angle on RAW:
“We have a lot of weird ideas, a lot of ideas that are out there, but that actually was one of the few that didn’t come from us. It was a decision from creative, and I thought, “Let’s try to make it work.” And I get that it’s not for everyone, I know some people didn’t care for it, but we also heard from a lot of people who loved it—it’s a bit of a mixed bag. And our thing has always been that we try to provide an alternative; a lot of people are into guys who are just serious and want to go out there and beat people up and that’s more than fine, I definitely understand that approach. But we just try to provide an alternative.”
On who he would like to add to The New Day:
“We talked about this for quite some time, especially earlier, and we always saw New Day as a faction that would expand and be larger than three members. Now, though, it seems like such a perfect fit with us three. But if we had to, we’re all such big Sasha Banks fans—I think she would add a different dynamic, though she’s such a strong, beloved character that I don’t think she needs to be surrounded by anyone. But if we were forced to pick someone, it would be Sasha Banks.”
On what other matches at the MITB PPV he’s looking forward to seeing:
I’m excited to see Seth Rollins—to see how he bounces back after his knee injury. He was affectionately known as the captain for the New Day going back, and he’s the guy who I think is one of the best in the world in the ring. We’re all excited to have him back, and to see if he’s able to recapture his crown.
And obviously Cena and Styles is one of those matches that people have wanted to see for a very long time, so those are the ones that I think a lot of people will be excited for and I am as well.
