Renee Paquette Questions WWE Booking Big E To Take The Fall At Day 1
Lesnar pinned Big E to win the Title
Renee Paquette has questioned the decision to have Big E take the pinfall in the WWE Championship match at WWE Day 1.
Reigning champion Big E was pinned by late entrant Brock Lesnar, who claimed his sixth WWE Title in the Day 1 main event. The bout also included Bobby Lashley, who is scheduled to challenge Lesnar at the Royal Rumble, Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins - with reports claiming Rollins was originally scheduled to win the Title.
Paquette believes WWE shouldn't have stunted Big E's continued progression into the main event scene by having him be the one to take the fall.
Speaking during the latest episode of the 'Throwing Down with Renee and Miesha' podcast, Paquette said: "I just wish, given the stipulation of it being a fatal five-way, the fact that Big E did not have to be pinned or submitted in order to lose the title. I just don’t know why he had to be the one to take the pin. You know, I feel like it could’ve gone to, you know, somebody else in the fight.
"Maybe Kevin Owens? Sorry, Kevin. It definitely opens the door to see like, what’s next? Are we going to get to see more of Big E and Brock? It does seem like we’re going to see some Bobby Lashley and Brock, which I cannot wait to see. I think Bobby Lashley is so cool, he’s just an insane athlete and I can’t wait to see what those two do.
"The thing is, is that Brock doesn’t need it. Brock is not the kind of athlete or wrestler to need a title. He doesn’t need a title. He doesn’t need a title to be a draw, Brock is Brock. He’s an attraction no matter what. But, this like, this sort of version of Brock where he’s like, babyface Brock Lesnar with his ponytail and his overalls and his plaid shirts. There’s just something about it that I think, I don’t know, it’s like this character evolution of Brock Lesnar that I think so many people are drawn to right now.”
