Big E: People Don't Fully Realise Just How Good Roman Reigns Is
Big E was full of praise for The Tribal Chief
Big E has heaped praise on WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, saying it's impossible to comprehend just how good he is until you step into the ring with him.
E and Reigns had a hellacious main event match at WWE Survivor Series on Sunday as the Tribal Chief defeated the WWE Champion to close the pay-per-view.
Talking following the bout, Big E revealed the duo reflected on their respective rises through the business afterwards.
Speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated after the match, E said: "This was my first singles main event on a pay-per-view, and to do it with Roman means even more. Our paths were different, but after the match, we reflected on spending our days, circa 2010, together in that FCW warehouse. We were not making much money but we were very hungry.
"His strength and athleticism are real. He even got me up in that powerbomb. I thought he was going to bail on it, but he had that second surge to get me up.
"Until you’re in the ring with him, people just don’t fully realize how good he is. He’s an incredible performer on an incredible run, and you can’t take away anything from him.“
