WWE Champion Big E has been sharing the love across the wrestling divide as he says he’s a massive fan of AEW star and Team Taz member Powerhouse Hobbs.
Big E ascended to the top of the sports entertainment world when he cashed in his Money In The Bank contract on RAW and became WWE Champion for the very first time.
The New Day star had called his shot earlier in the day, telling everyone including WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and his challenger on RAW Randy Orton that he had every intention of showing up on RAW and cashing in the contract he won in July.
Lashley and Orton faced off in the advertised main event of RAW with The All Mighty one able to overcome The Viper and retain his title. There was no time to celebrate however as Big E stayed true to his word and cashed in on Lashley. A short match followed in which Big E had to kick out of a spear before recovering and nailing his Big Ending for the win and the championship.
The world of wrestling celebrated E’s title win with stars from all companies taking to social media to share their congratulations and support. One such star to do so was AEW’s Powerhouse Hobbs. The new WWE Champion replied to Hobbs, telling him he was already a “massive fan” of his.
You’re the man, bruh. You already know I’m a massive fan of you. You have all the tools.

Powerhouse Hobbs has been impressive since joining Team Taz in All Elite Wrestling. He holds victories over former IMPACT World Champion Brian Cage and the impressive Dante Martin in recent weeks but it seems Team Taz has a bigger prize in mind.
Hobbs and Hook recently flanked Taz as he shouted down CM Punk while Punk was addressing his next move in AEW since defeating Darby Allin at All Out.
