Big E WWE: “I’ve got a few more years left in me”

Last updated

WWE Superstar and RAW Champion Big E recently discussed how long he has left in the ring, with the New Day member stating it might be sooner than anticipated.

‘I’ve got a few more years left in me. I don’t really know when that time will be, but when you’re 23, 35 feels like it’s ages from now and that you’ll be an old man and beat up,’ Big E recently stated.

‘So 35 felt like at the time a good time to get out and I don’t want to overstay my welcome” the WWE Champion continued.

‘I was talking to one of our refs, Rod Zapata, and I’ve known him since I got to FCW ’“ so I’ve known him for 12 years,’ Big E added. ‘We’ve talked about how I’d spoken about getting out at 35 but I think, in many ways, a lot of wrestlers’ primes are like 35, 40. We’re seeing Bobby Lashley now having his best run in his mid-40s.

‘We have so many guys now, Randy Orton, AJ Styles, Kofi Kingston, Bobby Roode, Dolph Ziggler ’“ so many guys in their 40s performing at such a high level. 

“They look great and are aging well. So, I don’t know if I’m going to wrestle into my 40s as I always told myself that I would make sure I was out before then, but my body feels great” the WWE Champion concluded.
