Big E Reveals Backstage Reaction To His WWE Title Win
The new WWE Champion is well liked backstage
It’s long been said that Big E is one of the most well-liked performers backstage in WWE, and now the newly crowned WWE Champion has shared the reaction backstage following his title win on Monday.
Speaking with Bleacher Report, Big E said the following about the backstage vibe at Raw:
“It was beautiful. It’s late. It’s after 11 p.m. by the time I’m done glad-handing and thanking everyone at ringside. It was probably almost 11:30 p.m., but Gorilla was still almost full with people there, talent and producers and so many people. It’s awesome getting love from your peers: people who are great at their craft and work hard, too.”
People no longer with WWE also sent their well wishes to the new champ, such as The Nature Boy Ric Flair:
“I’ll always geek for a Ric Flair text. I got a Ric Flair text a few months ago for Money in the Bank and he texted me again last night. It’s Ric Flair. Getting a Ric Flair text is pretty ridiculous. But you know, there are people who used to work here that did reach out and say some really positive things. AJ Lee, who I still talk to fairly regularly and definitely consider her a friend, reached out and said some really beautiful things. Everyone has just been so incredibly nice.”
