The Big E era has begun!

On Monday Night Raw last night, the Money In The Bank winner
successfully cashed in his MITB briefcase on Bobby Lashley
to win the WWE title, hours after he spilled the beans on
social media saying he would be on the show to cash in and
win the title.

Lashley had just defeated Randy Orton to retain the title in
the main event of Raw but Big E kept his promise and came
out with the briefcase as the fans in the TD Garden lost it.

The show went to commercials but after Raw came back, the
match started against Lashley’s will who did not want to
wrestle. A Big Ending and a three count later, a new WWE
champion was crowned.

Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods joined in the celebrations in
the ring as pyro went off much to the enjoyment of the
lively crowd.

The 35-year-old Florida native now becomes the second member
of the ever-popular New Day faction to win the WWE title
following Kofi Kingston’s heroics in 2019.

Big E has been part of WWE since 2009 and ever since his
main roster debut in late 2012, he never challenged for any
of the major singles titles. The bulk of his career has been
part of The New Day trio where with Kofi and Xavier Woods
won the Raw and Smackdown Tag Team titles pm eight different
occasions. He also won the Intercontinental title twice and
was the NXT champion in 2012.
