Big E became the new WWE Champion on WWE Raw: September 13th, 2021, after he cashed in his Money in the Bank contract and defeated Bobby Lashley.
The entire WWE Universe popped! There wasn’t one who wasn’t celebrating his victory. The New Day came out to the arena as Big E held the title up in the air, and the cheers echoed through the arena. However, to celebrate this victory, WWE did something that the company has never done before!
The company changed their Twitter name from WWE to BIG E IS WWE CHAMPION. While the company has always changed display pictures and banner pictures of the social media profile to commemorate champions, changing the Twitter name is a first! That’s how BIG this victory is.
Big E won the WWE Championship after announcing his plans
The new WWE Champion did not cash in his Money in the Bank contract as a surprise move. He announced it on social media before the show started, and he put Orton and Lashley on notice during the show as well.
Therefore, it’s not that The Almighty did not know that E wouldn’t cash in, he probably didn’t think that Big E would go through with it. However, he did and now he’s the Champion!
What’s next for the WWE Champion?
Considering the title he is holding, he should be working with Raw. However, on paper he will still be listed as a SmackDown Superstar.
The reason he could challenge the WWE Champion is that he was holding the Money in the Bank briefcase. As a rule, anyone holding the Money in the Bank contract can challenge any champion throughout WWE in their division.
Now, the WWE Universe can still expect Big E to be on Friday Night SmackDown to address the WWE Universe about his situation. In fact, he could leave SmackDown with a notice that as WWE Champion, he will see the Universal Champion at Survivor Series.
As of now, it’s unclear exactly where he will work. However, he could make appearances on both until he officially changes to Raw from SmackDown during next WWE Draft.
