Big E Says WWE Hall Of Famer Reached Out After WWE Title Win

Big E

WWE Champion Big E has revealed that a WWE Hall Of Famer he “always pops” for reached out to The New Day star to congratulate him on his historic title victory.

Bobby Lashley defended his WWE Championship in the advertised main event against Randy Orton on the 13th of September edition of Raw. Lashley defeated the Viper, but his night was far from over.

Mr. Money In The Bank Big E had taken to social media earlier in the day to make it clear that he was at Raw – despite being a SmackDown star at the time – and fully intended to cash in his contract against whoever the WWE Champion was.

Big E kept his word, and as Lashley tried to regain his composure after his hard-fought victory, The New Day member made his presence known and cashed in his briefcase. Lashley hit Big E with his patented spear, but Big E survived and dropped Lashley with a Big Ending for the win and title.

Speaking on Ebro In The Morning on HOT 97, the WWE Champion revealed that a WWE Hall Of Famer contacted him to express 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.”

The current WWE Champion has successfully defended his WWE Title in a Steel Cage against Lashley on Raw and, most recently, at Crown Jewel, where he defeated former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
