Big E Thanks CM Punk For “Saving” His Career

New Day member Big E recently appeared on Barstool Sports My Mom’s Basement and made the following comments regarding former WWE Superstar CM Punk

My NXT run, I loved and there are elements of that, that I do miss. Being a powerhouse and having something unique like the five count. I tried when I came up and that wasn’t something that we were going to do on the main roster despite having this great theme. There was no explanation, I didn’t do it. I thought I came up in a good spot with Dolph Ziggler and AJ to where I could branch out and do my own stuff, but it didn’t work out that way. I had the IC Title run, and I have to give credit to Punk, he pretty much saved my career by putting in a good word for me. I got to work Punk, win the IC Title, and I was established then. There’s a good amount of people who give me feedback and say, ‘You can be World Champion,’ and I believe that as well. And I’m prepared for it. I’ve never felt like I need to turn on Kofi and Woods and leave New Day behind to accomplish that goal.
