Big E Was Prepared For 'Long & Drawn Out' WWE Money In The Bank Briefcase Run

Big E had the Money In The Bank briefcase for around 8 weeks

Big E has admitted he believed he was going to have a longer run with the Money In The Bank briefcase.

Big E won the Men's Money In The Bank contract in July at the WWE pay-per-view of the same name and, having teased cashing in on Universal Champion Roman Reigns, eventually used the briefcase to win the WWE Title from Bobby Lashley just two months after, at the September 13 Monday Night Raw.

The new WWE Champion had expected to hold the Money In The Bank briefcase for longer than a few weeks but is glad he was able to successfully cash it in.

Speaking to Ariel Helwani on The Ariel Helwani Show, Big E said: "I thought it was going to be long and drawn out. At one point, it looked like I was going to be doing stuff with Corbin. Then there was the stuff with Logan Paul, so you think maybe that's the direction things are going for a while.

"As you know, it's a topsy turvy company of ours and things change all the time, so you never know. You also have Otis, who had the briefcase and didn't end up becoming World Champion. That's happened in other instances. You never know if that's going to be you too. I'm glad that was not the case for me."
