Big E broke the internet on Monday afternoon when he announced on Twitter that he would be cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase to challenge the WWE Champion.
Though Kofi Kingston and Big E are stablemates in New Day and best friends, Kingston didn't learn Big E was going to be on Raw until he saw Big E's post on social media.
Finding out what's happening on Raw through Twitter is nothing new for the former WWE Champion.
"You would be surprised. Usually, as performers, we are the last one's to find things out. This week and last week, I found out on Twitter what I was doing on Raw. It was announced I would be in an eight-man tag team match and I was like, 'Oh, good to know. I gotta prepare.' Same thing last week when we had the tag team turmoil, I had no idea until I looked on social media and I saw it. If I didn't look on social media, I wouldn't have known until I got to the building. Oftentimes, we have no idea what the show is going to entail or what we're supposed to be doing. Even sometimes when we do know, it always changes. That's the bittersweet part of being a WWE superstar. If you're somebody who needs to know exactly what is happening, when it's happening, and step for step, you're going to be real upset working here because everything changes. I think it's a good thing, keeps everyone on their toes," Kingston said on 106 KMEL.
Big E stuck to his word, cashing in the Money in the Bank briefcase to defeat Bobby Lashley and win the WWE Championship to close Monday's episode of Raw.
Kingston and Xavier Woods joined Big E in the ring for a celebration as the show went off the air. If you missed anything from Monday's WWE Raw, check out Fightful's full report on the show by clicking here.
