Big E: Bio
The New Day love to have a good time. Good times come easy when you have a powerhouse like Big E on your team who is willing to wear a unicorn horn on his head.
The word “Big” almost feels like an understatement when talking about Big E, but how else do you describe a 290-pound tank of a man who can deadlift a Fiat? “Superhuman” comes to mind, as does “Herculean.” “Big,” though, leaves no question about the type of punishment he dishes out inside the ring.
Long before he was chanting “New Day Rocks,” Big E was destined to command the spotlight. He was always the strongest kid in class — an advantage he used to win state championships in high school wrestling and punish quarterbacks on the defensive line for the University of Iowa.
When Big E signed with WWE, it looked like more punishment was on the menu for his opponents. That was the case as he bulldozed his way to the NXT Championship, then debuted on Raw and captured the Intercontinental Title. But it was after he joined forces with Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods to form The New Day that the WWE Universe got to learn about the man behind the muscle.
Incorporating The Power of Positivity, Big E revealed his fun-loving side, heralding The New Day’s arrival with his booming voice and never hesitating to shake his hips mid-match – before crushing his opponents with a devastating splash, of course.
Though he may have a big smile on his face as he showers fans in Booty-Os before the match, when the bell rings, Big E is just as dangerous as ever. It’s part of the reason why The New Day are eight-time Tag Team Champions and hold the record as the longest-reigning team in WWE history. Just because Big E likes to have fun doesn’t mean he can’t powerslam you through the ring, too.
The 2020 WWE Draft was truly a bittersweet evening for The New Day, however, as Kingston and Woods were drafted to Raw immediately after winning the SmackDown Tag Team Titles, and the blue brand countered by selecting Big E.
