Big E: It'd Be Fun To Reunite With Kofi Kingston And Xavier Woods To Face Imperium

Big E names reuniting with Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods as his dream match.

Former WWE Champion Big E has not wrestled since the March 11, 2022, episode of WWE SmackDown. There, he suffered a neck injury when he landed on his head as Ridge Holland hit him with a belly-to-belly suplex. Big E subsequently announced that he fractured his C1 vertebrae and C6 vertebrae. Though he did not suffer any ligament or spinal cord damage, he has yet to return to the ring.

Speaking on the Sarah O'Connell Show, Big E was asked to name his dream match. He first pointed to Goldberg. He noted that the WWE Hall of Famer was his typical answer because he was a big fan as a kid. Big E then stated that reuniting with Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods would be special, and he brought up a potential match against Imperium (Gunther, Ludwig Kaiser, and Giovanni Vinci).

"That’s a hard one. There’s so much great talent now, and the roster has even changed from the two years that I’ve been out. I think something probably like a six-man, a trios match, to do it again with Kofi and Woods. That’s the best way to end things. They’ve been such a big part of my career. You know what, it’s a great match. Imperium is doing great things. I think there’s a lot of buzz. Gunther’s just been amazing, he’s been on an incredible run. Obviously, they’ve been locking horns with Imperium, so to be back for a match like that would be big. But honestly, any six-man with the brothers, with my guys would be something that would mean a lot to me. [Facing Imperium] would be fun. It’s a cool contrast of styles. They’re so stoic and austere, and we’re anything but. So yeah, that’d be fun," Big E said.

Big E recently said that he did not have a timetable for his return. Check out his comments here.
