They don’t seem happy. There are a lot of championships in the wrestling world but few have the history of the WWE Title. The championship has been around for about sixty years now and some of the biggest names in the history of wrestling have held it. Being champion can still mean a lot, but there is something lost when a title reign does not go so well. That seems to have been the case as of late, but some wrestlers do not seem to blame the former champ.
At WWE Day One, Brock Lesnar won a fatal five way match to win the WWE Title, ending Big E.’s reign without pinning him. According to Fightful Select, there were some backstage in WWE who felt that Big E. was booked inconsistently as champion. There were some who who went “above and beyond” in an attempt to make Big E.’s television segments as logical as possible. Big E. took part in a #1 contenders match on this week’s Monday Night Raw, which was won by Bobby Lashley.
Big E. did have a rocky time as champion. Check out what he did with the title:
Opinion: Looking back at Big E.’s title reign, it is easy to see how things were more than a bit inconsistent. It wasn’t a good sign when he won the title by cashing in the Money in the Bank briefcase, as it didn’t exactly make him look like a winner but rather someone who won a ladder match and used his prize to become champion. Then he lost to Roman Reigns at Survivor Series and to Lashley on Monday Night Raw. Wins and losses matter, and they certainly did in Big E.’s case, which might be why he is no longer champion.
What did you think of Big E.’s title reign? Will he ever win the title again? Let us know in the comments below.
