The plug has been pulled. WWE has a bit of a strange history of pushing wrestlers, as sometimes they are given every chance in the world but others are given almost no chance whatsoever. That is the kind of thing can leave fans more than a little confused as some of the moves that WWE makes can be a little odd. That seems to be the case again, as another wrestler is now back to where he was before.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Big E.’s return to SmackDown and his reunion with Kofi Kingston marks the end of his singles run. Big E. was not brought over to feud with Roman Reigns, though that might still be the case later, as Reigns is in need of fresh opponents. During his singles run, Big E. won the Intercontinental and WWE Championship, losing the latter to Brock Lesnar on January 1.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that rarely makes sense from WWE and yet they keep doing it. At the end of the day, Big E. was turned into a single star for a little over a year, won some titles, and then was put right back into his usual tag team. I have no idea how you can make someone WWE Champion and then have almost no plans for him, but somehow that seems to be exactly what happened.
What do you think of Big E.? Is he better on his own or in a tag team? Let us know in the comments below.
