Since being pushed as a singles Superstar in the summer of 2020, Big E has been a featured performer on Friday Night SmackDown. He has had memorable feuds with the likes of Sheamus and Apollo Crews and he held the Intercontinental Championship for 107 days.
Big E has yet to challenge for the Universal Championship, but Kofi Kingson believes his New Day stablemate "will exceed every expectation" when he gets the opportunity.
"If E gets thrust into that role, going toe-to-toe with the Universal Champion, if that happens, [Xavier] Woods and me are going to lose our minds. I'm not big on looking too far ahead, but if that were to happen, E will exceed every expectation," Kofi told Sports Illustrated.
"He can talk, can make you laugh, he can gyrate his hips and he can beat you up. I'm so happy to see his success with the Intercontinental Championship, being able to continue the legacy of the workhorse title. His way with words is unmatched, and his ability to connect with the crowd is very special. E is ready to be at the top of this industry."
When Big E will challenge for the Universal Championship remains to be seen, but he could have an opportunity to enter the title picture soon with Money In The Bank coming up on July 18.
