Corey Graves talks about Big E's status

After several years spent in the mid-card, Big E has finally managed to fully express his talent. During his WWE career, the Tampa wrestler took down the WWE Championship (of which he is the current holder), the NXT Championship, the Intercontinental title, the Raw Tag Team Championship and the SmackDown Tag Team Championship (in both the cases with Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods).

His second reign as Raw Tag Team Champion, which lasted 483 days, is the longest in the history of the title. Big E will be called upon to defend his belt in the first pay-per-view of the new year, 'Day 1', which will be staged on January 1, 2022.

The New Day member will have to contend with Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens in a Triple Threat Match to the death. Vic Joseph's guest on the latest episode of 'After the Bell', WWE announcer Corey Graves highlighted how Big E is too often overshadowed by Universal champion Roman Reigns.

Corey Graves comments on Big E

“It won't be easy for Big E to defend the WWE title from the onslaught of Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins in the first PPV of 2022. At the same time, that Triple Threat Match represents a great opportunity for Big E to finally be the center of attention.

My impression is that the WWE Champion is too overshadowed by Roman Reigns' aura. It is not my intention to criticize the 'Tribal Chief', who has reached an incredible level over the past year. We are talking about an exceptional athlete, who has revived this business thanks also to the help of Paul Heyman and the other members of the Bloodline" - Corey Graves analyzed.

Speaking on the 'Barstool Rasslin' podcast a few days ago, Big E talked about his run as WWE Champion and so much more. “My biggest dream is to face Edge at WrestleMania next year. I know very well that he is a babyface too, but I looked at his rivalry with Seth Rollins and it was really crazy.

They gave birth to a formidable show” - he admitted. During his appearance on Barstool’s Rasslin’ podcast, Big E spoke about wanting to face the Hall of Famer. He admitted that the two might not have the greatest match, but the opportunity to wrestle his childhood hero is too big for him to miss out on.

“Then, my real number one as I have said 1000 times — but Goldberg is something very cool. I'm not saying we would have the greatest match of all time, but 10 minutes. Give me two minutes. I'll be a one-minute man for that match. The opportunity to wrestle — this man was my childhood hero."
