Speaking to Martenzie Johnson, Big E discussed how his theme came together.

"So the very first thing, as soon as I heard that the company wanted solo music for me – as much as I love the New Day music, I love what [former WWE music composer] Jim Johnston did with that – I thought … reach out to Wale. Let me reach out to my friends in hip-hop, who I’ve been a massive fan of for a long time, because I know they’re fans, I know if they have the time and the ability to do it, that they’ll do it. So I’m so glad. As soon as I thought of that, I talked to [WWE Music Group general manager] Neil Lawi and pretty much before I could get it out, I’m pretty sure he suggested, ‘Hey, what you think about getting Wale?'" he recalled.

Big E continued by saying, "I got so much love for him because he just does it. Don’t worry about financials, any of that other stuff, he’s just been so supportive of the three of us, of me, of my career. Such an incredible human being, and beyond just being an incredible rapper, he’s such a great dude. And a side of him that I wish more people got to really know. I feel like a lot of people jump to conclusions, but just such a tremendous human."

Though Big E is the Money in the Bank briefcase holder, he is not scheduled for a match at WWE SummerSlam.
