Big E held the Money in the Bank briefcase for 57 days, cashing it on the September 13 episode of WWE Raw to win the WWE Title from Bobby Lashley.
Big E declared on the afternoon of September 13 that he was going to cash in on Raw and made good on his promise.
Speaking to Ariel Helwani on The Ariel Helwani Show, Big E revealed that he thought he would be holding on the the briefcase a bit longer.
"I thought it was going to be long and drawn out. At one point, it looked like I was going to be doing stuff with Corbin. Then there was the stuff with Logan Paul, so you think maybe that's the direction things are going for a while. As you know, it's a topsy turvy company of ours and things change all the time, so you never know. You also have Otis, who had the briefcase and didn't end up becoming World Champion. That's happened in other instances. You never know if that's going to be you too. I'm glad that was not the case for me," he said.
Big E successfully defended the WWE Championship on Raw, defeating Bobby Lashley.
