Bully Ray: WWE's Treatment of Big E At WWE Day 1 'P***ed Me Off'
The WWE Hall Of Famer thought Big E was disrespected
The former Bubba Ray Dudley says the manner in which WWE treated Big E at WWE Day 1 'p***ed me off'.
Big E, then the WWE Champion, defended his Title in a Fatal 5 Way Match at the first pay-per-view of 2022, losing the Championship to Brock Lesnar in a bout that also included Bobby Lashley, Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins.
It was notable that, despite being the reigning champion, Big E did not come out for the match in the spot usually reserved for the Title holder - last - but Lesnar was instead afforded that position.
WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray believes the promotion showed disrespect to Big E for that placement, with the New Day member entering the match penultimately instead.
Speaking on Busted Open Radio, he said: "That's something that really pis*ed me off when I saw it. I understand that Brock Lesnar is the biggest star in that match; you can make an argument that Brock Lesnar is the biggest star in WWE right now. This is the man who defeated The Undertaker, ended The Streak, a five-time - up until the other night - world champion, a guy who does what he wants, when he wants.
"But he was not your WWE Champion. Big E was. If we know that Brock is going to win the championship, and he's going to have his moment, he's going to have his beauty shot at the end of the show, why would you have Big E come out fourth? Why would you have Brock come out last? There is absolutely zero reason. ZERO!"
