Before becoming a very effective team-mate, Big E spent NXT rings for about a year and a half. He even managed to win the major title of the development branch by defeating a certain Seth Rollins. Now in the main roster on the side of Smackdown Live. the wrestler continues his career in the tag team division with Woods and Kingston.
Very recently, Big E was interviewed by the TampaBay, and he returned to the importance of NXT for young talents joining the company.
“I think it’s fantastic. It has become more than just a feeder system for WWE. It’s become its own brand. It’s really cool to see how a lot of our hardcore fans have really taken to the brand. It has such a different feel, which I think is great. It doesn’t feel like RAW, it doesn’t feel like Smackdown. There is so much talent there. I think it’s great to have it in Central Florida. It’s cool. When I was in NXT five years ago, we didn’t travel nationally. And not only are they traveling and doing shows around the country, but they’re doing tours of Japan and Europe. And people across the world have taken to NXT so passionately. “
