Big E Believes Rising WWE Star Is A Future World Champion

Big E Believes Rising WWE Star Is A Future World Champion WWE

Former WWE Champion Big E has singled out a rising NXT star has someone likely to main event shows and win world championships in the future.

After visiting this week’s ‘Heatwave’ NXT special (August 22) Big E got a chance to see the next generation of WWE first-hand.

Whilst there he got particularly close with current NXT Champion Carmelo Hayes, even participating in a special throwback photoshoot which saw both Hayes and Big E hold their respective NXT Championships, with E posing with the title belt he held back in 2012.

In reflection of his interaction with Hayes, E posted a clip of the shoot while also sharing some kind words for the 29-year-old on Twitter.

E posted:

Melo is a STAR. Couldn’t be a bigger fan of @Carmelo_WWE as a talent & professional.

Looking forward to the main roster main events & world titles.

After originally rising through WWE’s developmental promotion FCW, E was a part of the original black & gold class of NXT along with the likes of Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt.

Similarly to all those stars E would later go on to capture a world championship, specifically the WWE Championship in 2021, something he clearly feels is also in Hayes’ future too.

You can check out E and Hayes’ interaction backstage at NXT Heatwave below.
