Last Sunday’s WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view saw former New Day member Big E retrieve the contract for a guaranteed title opportunity at any time over the next year.
Speaking with DAZN, Big E spoke about his future cash in, before admitting that he has his eye on current Universal Champion Roman Reigns as the target.
Big E explained:
“I feel Roman’s the guy though. Roman’s the guy in the industry, and if you want to be remembered, if you want to do something cool, something special, that’s a great way to do it. Roman’s on a tear. This is one of the best runs I can remember. I feel like he’s definitely hitting his stride in a way that he hasn’t before. You can look at the entire scope of the rest of the industry, and you can determine who you think is the number one guy, who you think is the best, who should be at the very top. I think it’s not that difficult to make an argument for Roman being number one across all brands, across all boards. Beating him means that whoever beats him for that title, it’s going to be memorable. It’s going to mean something, and why not me?”
Reigns will defend the Universal Championship against John Cena at the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view on August 21.
