Watch as Bug E wins the WWE Championship on Monday Night Raw over Bobby Lashley.

It’s a New Day, Yes it is!

On Monday night, the hints were all there that Big E, the holder of the Money in the Bank contract holder, was going to cash in.

Shortly after Bobby Lashley retained his WWE Championship over Randy Orton, Big E’s music hit, and the cash in was on.

Big E capitalized. And we have a new WWE Champion.

Lashley had the title since February after defeating The Miz on Monday Night Raw. It is Big E’s first ever WWE Championship reign in the company history.
