Massive E has spent the vast majority of his time on the primary roster as a tag workforce competitor as a part of The New Day alongside Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods.
Since final summer time, he’s been booked as a singles star. It began out on account of accidents sustained by Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston. WWE determined to proceed his singles push once they stored him on SmackDown and moved Kingston and Woods to Uncooked through the 2020 Draft late final 12 months.
Massive E efficiently defended the WWE Intercontinental Title towards Apollo Crews at Sunday’s WWE Fastlane pay-per-view occasion from Tropicana Subject in St. Petersburg, Florida on the WWE Community.
WWE Stats & Information Twitter account talked about this was Massive E’s first singles match on PPV with a title on the road since Excessive Guidelines 2014.
“That is @WWEBigE’s first singles match on PPV with a title on the road since Excessive Guidelines 2014. At that Might 2014 occasion, his first reign as @WWE Intercontinental Champion got here to an finish by the hands of @StuBennett.”
One other fascinating stat was if Crews had received this contest then he would’ve been the fortieth wrestler to win the strap and maintain the USA Title.
