Big E Comments On Which WWE Title He'd Go After Should He Win The Royal Rumble

Big E lost the WWE Championship at WWE Day 1 to Brock Lesnar, who was inserted into the match hours before the event.

Looking to earn the title back, Big E will enter the men's Royal Rumble. Should he win, he will have the option to challenge for the WWE Championship held by Lesnar or the WWE Universal Championship held by Roman Reigns.

Which title would he like to go after?

"Being a two-time WWE Champion really cements you and puts you in that rarified air. Just being WWE Champion alone puts you in a different category. I was actually looking...I was sitting on my couch yesterday and where I keep my bags, before I need to pack them, which is right across the living room and not far away. I realized, I kind of miss not having that title in my house. Just randomly being able to pick it up and knowing that it was there. I would love to get back to that and the opportunity to beat Brock, but in the same vein, Roman is on such an absolutely incredible all-time great run and whoever it is that dethrones this man is going to be remembered for a while. That's going to be a trivia question for decades to come, 'who was the one to end this 500 day-plus incredible Roman Reigns runs?' Doing that would be pretty special too. Both would be incredible," Big E said in an interview with WWE Die Woche, acknowledging that he didn't truly give a firm answer.

Lesnar will defend his WWE Championship against Bobby Lashley at the Rumble while Reigns face Seth Rollins.
