Big E comments on black wrestlers having success in WWE

During an appearance on the These Urban Times podcast, Big E commented on black wrestlers having success in WWE…

“I’m so proud of just the amount of talent across the board. You look at one of the very biggest stars in our industry, that’s Bianca [Belair]. She’s been absolutely killing it, not just in the ring, but outside of it. Just from seeing the way that little girls from all backgrounds and colors, the way they connect with her is so cool. Her husband Montez [Ford], his partner [Angelo] Dawkins, Bobby Lashley obviously. I don’t know what this man is made of, but I think he’s aging backwards.”

“There’s so many Black talents who aren’t just there to fill a quota. They clearly are so talented that they deserve to be in their spot in the ring. So I’m really proud of the progression. Obviously there’s more work to be done too, but it’s been really cool to see the amount of really talented Black talent come along in the last few years.” (quotes courtesy of
