WWE Champion Big E has revealed a WWE Hall Of Famer that he “always pops” for reached out to congratulate The New Day star on his monumental title victory.
On the 13th of September edition of Raw Bobby Lashley defended his WWE Championship in the advertised main event against Randy Orton. Lashley managed to overcome the Viper but his night was far from over.
Earlier in the day, Mr. Money In The Bank Big E had taken to social media to make clear he was at Raw – despite at the time being a SmackDown star – and fully intended to cash in his contract against whoever the WWE Champion was.
Big E was true to his word and while Lashley tried to regain his composure after his hard-fought win, The New Day member made his presence felt and cashed in his briefcase. Lashley managed to hit Big E with his patented spear but Big E survived and dropped Lashley with a Big Ending for the win and the title.
Speaking on Ebro In The Morning on HOT 97 the WWE Champion revealed that a certain WWE Hall Of Famer reached out to him to offer their congratulations:
“I don’t know how he has my number. There were a bunch of people who reached out. I got a Ric Flair text. I’ll always pop at getting a text from him…Having Ric Flair reach out. He’s always been calling me. He’s always been real cool. He was definitely one that was dope.”
Since his WWE Title victory, Big E has successfully defended his belt in a Steel Cage against Lashley on Raw and most recently at Crown Jewel where he defeated former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
