Big E learned from Kofi's WWE Title loss.
Big E lost the WWE Title to Brock Lesnar at WWE Day 1 in an unexpected 5-Way after Roman Reigns contracted COVID-19 and couldn't face Brock Lesnar one-on-one for the WWE Universal Title. In the wake of Day 1, Big E seems to be lost in the shuffle.
Drawing comparisons to Kofi Kingston's World Title reign ending in 2019, Big E says he is not okay with going back to being another guy on the roster after having a taste of gold.
"I’m not comfortable being just a guy on the roster,” E said to Sports Illustrated. “I’m not good with going back to the way it was before.”
“I don’t want to position it as learning from Kofi’s missteps,” Ewen says. “I know what his intentions were, and mine would have been the same. He didn’t do anything wrong. But I have learned that losing this title hurts.
“I love being myself and being entertaining, but you can’t go from dropping a world championship to saying everything is golden. This title meant a lot to me, and it meant to a lot of people, too. My focus is clawing back to that spot.”
