As the Royal Rumble is the unofficial start of the Road to WrestleMania, now is the time when people begin to think about who will be in the main event of the biggest show of the year. That isn’t exclusive to just fans, as Big E has thrown his name into the hat.
While appearing on Busted Open Radio, Big E was asked if he thinks he can main event WrestleMania. He responded by saying he has been grinding and actually works there full-time. Here is the quote, courtesy of Fightful:
“You know how it is, they will go through a list of part-timers, of the big names and big money guys who work once a year. They will go through that list and if they can’t get all those guys booked for that spot at WrestleMania, then it’s like ‘okay, who actually works here on a weekly basis and has been grinding and now maybe we give him an opportunity.'”
Big E has been one of the stars who fans have been clamoring to see get pushed. While he has won the Intercontinental Championship recently, he is no longer the favorite to win the Royal Rumble.
