Controversies of Big E:
- In December 2016, one-third of the ‘New Day’, Big E, shared a photo of himself with his fellow team members (Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston), Sasha Banks (RAW Women’s Champion) and Rich Swann (WWE Cruiserweight Champion). However, he posted it with a controversial hashtag, #BlackExcellence. The supposed ‘racist’ hashtag did not go down well with the twitteratis, who started reprimanding him for his post.
- Seeing the situation worsen, team member Kofi Kingston intervened and posted a long letter on his social media account with a clarification. The letter read that the hashtag used was not to draw a comparison between the races but rather a ‘motivational force’ for some people who, to this day, think that it is impossible to attain certain goals because of their skin color.

Facts and News related to Big E:
- In his younger days, ‘Ettore Ewen’ was a state champion in high school wrestling. In addition, during his university years, he played American Football as a ‘defensive lineman’ for the Iowa Hawkeyes. Owing to a number of athletic honors garnered by him, he was once named Hillsborough County’s “Ironman of the Year.”
- However, after graduating, Big E chose the sport of ‘Powerlifting’. In only his first appearance at USA Powerlifting (USAPL) meet in 2010, Big E became the top heavyweight lifter, breaking all four Florida state raw powerlifting records in the 275-pound category. Additionally, with a 749 raw pound deadlift, he surpassed the national deadlift record at the same event.
- To portray Big E as a beast, the WWE added a unique attribute to his gimmick at NXT. Instead of the usual 3 count pin, Big E asked the referees to count until 5. Even with 2 additional counts, the opponents couldn’t find a way out. However, much to fans’ disappointment, this unique ‘feature’ was not carried to his main roster character. Interestingly, the opening lines of the then entrance theme of Big E were- “Three ain’t enough man I need five.”
- Reportedly, Big E is very close friends with the ‘eternal’ face of the company- John Cena. Some sources even suggest that whatever Big E is today in the WWE, it is all because of none other than the ‘leader of the Cenation.’
- He is very popular on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, where, unlike other wrestlers who talk about sports and politics, Big E writes sarcastic and humorous tweets mostly concerning the Entertainment Industry.
