WWE Money in the Bank is just around the corner and Kofi Kingston believes Big E would be perfect for the match.
Despite his tenured WWE career, Big E has only competed in two ladder matches and has never been part of Money in the Bank.
Kofi Kingston would like to see that change in 2021.
“E would be a great fit because he would bring a lot of things to the table you hadn’t seen before,” Kingston told Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. “There aren’t a lot of people that move like Big E that are built like him in a Money in the Bank match. What I love about Money in the Bank is the fact that you have so many people in the ring together that are different in size, stature and style. People forget this about Big E—he’s kind of a freak. Yes, he’s got all these muscles and he’s a strong guy, but he does so much more. He’s athletic, and he’s dangerously quick. There was a time in the locker room when [Xavier] Woods was joshing Big E a little bit, and E lunged over toward Woods and just yoked him up. It was all in a playful way, but I’d never seen somebody that big move that fast.”
Kingston continued by saying, “One of my goals when I initially joined New Day, when Woods and E approached me about being in this group, I wanted to do something new—and I wanted to help Woods and E rise and do whatever I could do to help them achieve a level of stardom in this industry that they hadn’t before. So yes, E would be amazing in Money in the Bank.”
Kingston has competed in seven Money in the Bank ladder matches during his career, but has never secured the briefcase.
Big E is set to challenge for the Intercontinental Title on Friday's SmackDown in a fatal four-way match.
