Big E 'Relishing' Being One Of WWE's Older Wrestlers

Big E is liking his status in WWE

Big E says he is 'relishing' his position as one of WWE's older talents in the locker room. 

Big E has been with WWE since 2009, making his main roster debut at the end of 2012. The New Day member's hard work culminated in him winning the WWE Championship on Raw just under two weeks ago.

Having been in the WWE system since he was 23, Big E is now enjoying his role as one of the older guys, who can help to encourage younger wrestlers and help them feel welcome in WWE.

Speaking toThe Ringer Wrestling Show, Big E said: "I’m getting to that point where I look around the locker room and realise I’m kind of one of the older guys now. I relish the role a little bit of being one of the OGs.

"There are horror stories about what wrestling locker rooms were like 20 or 30 years ago, and I’m hoping we can be parts of a locker room that are more encouraging and welcoming. I still have many years left in me, but I look at the Rhea Ripleys of the world, who are a decade younger, or the Austin Theorys. We have a lot of cats who are going to be around for a lot longer than I will. When my time is over, they’ll still be around.

"I hope we can give them the support and love they need to be the next ones up and to continue to develop. I’m starting to relish the role of being one of the older guys."
