We didn’t think it could get worse for the former master of the 5-count, but this week it did. Instead of getting a showcase match defending his Intercontinental championship on the biggest stage possible, Big E. announced he’ll be entering the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, Brother instead. Not the best message to send fans about the importance of the champion or the championship. Of course, E could win the whole thing and get a nice Mania Moment, but this feels like a lost opportunity to get the belt and the man holding it some serious shine.
It’s a good thing Big E. was on top of his social media game this week, as E uses a Raekwon classic to slaps some sense into a WWE crew member – wasting what looks like a perfectly good Drumstick for some great comic timing. I’m not sure what the point of these videos besides being as ridiculous as possible, but it’s a shame E doesn’t have a goofy backstage segments like this on every Raw:
This next tweet is for all the fans out there who wrote pages and pages of Big E/AJ Lee fan-fiction, and are still upset that they unceremoniously disbanded Team Rocket. Although this also works for E and Kaitlyn shippers as well:
Look forward to lots of pics of oppositely-hued, interlocking hands on my new interracial dating site, http://t.co/syccEVT2Td.

Let’s count the ways E endears him self to the WWE Universe in only 15 seconds:
1. Has no problem poking fun at how um, impressive, his pectorals are.
2. Solid t-shirt selling game.
3. Gets that it’s not so subtle that he and Mark Henry team up all the time.
4. Reads fan tweets – ie might somehow read our tweet about this post, then read this post. Mind. blown.
Classic Big E:
Fast forward to 5:35. Presented without further comment:
