In recent weeks, the Monday Night Raw roster has undergone a major upheaval. During one of the last episodes of the red brand, Big E collected the Money in the Bank briefcase and pinned Bobby Lashley becoming WWE Champion for the first time in his career.
In the last episode of Raw the wrestler, member of the New Day, pinned with a spectacular Big Ending from the post and after a great match Bobby Lashley who thus wasted the chance to rematch. At the end of the episode, Drew McIntyre arrived and sent out signals of a challenge to the current WWE Champion.
Speaking during Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette Big E, he talked about his feelings as a champion and revealed that, in the short term, he would like to challenge a WWE Hall of Famer of the caliber of Bill Goldberg.
Big E reflects on Goldberg
During the show about the possibility of challenging Bill Goldberg, Big E said: “It’s nice to be champion, but above all, I think there are so many things that I still haven’t been able to do, I think about a match against Bill Goldberg.
I never thought I could deal with him but now that I’m in this position and he’s still under contract I think this is possible.” Big E also stated that he was a huge Goldberg fan since childhood and feels like the right person to put an end to his career: “We’ll see, but I think I’m the right person to send Bill Goldberg home.”
After weeks of absence, Goldberg is back on the satellite link in the last episode of Monday Night Raw where he had important and heavy words for Bobby Lashley, guilty of attacking him and his son at SummerSlam. Goldberg has made it clear that now he wants to avenge his family and is ready to do anything to stop The All Mighty and finally find his revenge.
The two could soon compete in the Pay Per View that WWE will hold in Saudi Arabia. When McIntyre claimed that he was going to win the Money in the Bank briefcase, the crowd booed him. While they loved and appreciated how he carried WWE on his back for most of 2020, it felt as though he had overstayed his welcome in the title picture.
After losing to Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania, McIntyre had another opportunity in a triple threat match at WrestleMania Backlash. After that, he had an opportunity at Hell in a Cell.
