6 WWE Superstars Big E is friends with in real life
Big E rocked the WWE Universe with a huge victory on the September 13, 2021 episode of RAW. He came over from WWE SmackDown and cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase on the WWE Champion.
He cashed in his contract after Bobby Lashley retained his title against Randy Orton. Big E pinned Lashley to become the new WWE Champion. Soon after his victory, well-wishers flooded social media to congratulate him.
This showed that Big E is one of the most loved superstars in the company today. The babyface is known as a fun-loving guy who goes to any extent to entertain fans and other WWE Superstars.
In celebration of Big E’s WWE Championship victory, let’s take a look at the six superstars who are good friends with him in real life.
#6-5. Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston are two of Big E’s best friends in WWE
By now, it’s common knowledge that Big E is close friends with Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods in WWE. All three men started their main roster careers in very different ways. However, a career-changing idea from Xavier Woods brought them together to form the New Day.
Over the years, all three men have worked together to achieve a single goal. Woods and Big E were two of the happiest men alive when Kofi Kingston lived his dream and became the WWE Champion at WrestleMania 35.
Similarly, Kofi and Woods rushed out as soon as Big E won the WWE Championship from Bobby Lashley on RAW. The new WWE Champion has spoken about his relationship with Kofi and Woods in great detail on many occasions.
“I can’t imagine being in a group with two more selfless people and that’s what I’ve always appreciated. It can be easy in this business to be selfish and to just worry about your own push, but I love the fact that we’re always so genuinely supportive of each other and our projects, whether they be in WWE, or outside of the company, whatever it is, and they were there for me and I appreciate that,” said Big E on his relationship with Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston.

#3. Big E and Carmella teamed up for the WWE Mixed Match Challenge in 2018
Carmella and Big E teamed up for the WWE Mixed Match Challenge in 2018. However, the two superstars did not make it far in the tournament. Carmella and Big E still managed to give fans some memorable moments on-screen during their partnership.
During an interview, The Princess of Staten Island was asked about who she’d label as her favorite tag team partner. Carmella did not hesitate and stated that she has a lot of fun with Big E and would like to form a tag team with him.
“If I could have any tag team partner I would choose Big E,” Carmella said. “Because we were partners for the Mixed Match Challenge and we had so much fun and I love pancakes and he’s just the best and I love the New Day. So I would pick Big E,” said Carmella.
Big E has been a great influence on several WWE Superstars behind the scenes. Carmella is one such superstar who has shown her love for the WWE Champion on a few occasions.
#2. WWE Superstar John Cena and Big E are good friends
John Cena and Big E are two of the goofiest characters in WWE. Both men are known for their humor, and their abilities to play babyface characters perfectly well.
What many fans may not know is that Big E and Cena are good friends behind the scenes. That’s not all, as the two meaty men are also gym buddies. Big E has spoken about how he has learned a lot from John Cena over the years.
“From John Cena, I learned about the importance of timing and the moment. There are things you can let get away from you, and things might happen out of nowhere, but it’s all about owning the moment. When you’re out there in front of the crowd, it’s about taking that chance or doing something special so you go from just being a guy to being someone important,” said Big E.

The two WWE Superstars haven’t gotten a chance to work together in recent years. However, Cena was one of the first men with whom Big E had a rivalry with during his early days on the main roster.
#1. WWE Champion Big E is friends with Cesaro
Cesaro and Big E have faced each other in several singles and tag team matches in WWE. According to Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods, Cesaro has become one of the invisible members of New Day. Cesaro has been seen with members of New Day on several occasions. He is also one of the core members of Woods’ UpUpDownDown channel.
Big E has spoken about the trio’s relationship with Cesaro and how The Swiss Superman became their friend:
“We started with Cesaro and Kidd. Then we wrestled The Bar. We [were] also wrestling Cesaro and [Shinsuke Nakamura], recently. I feel like several incarnations of Cesaro along the way. Remember we had to establish our friendship to get us all on-screen to piecemeal this thing together because we knew the three of us wanted to be in a group and we had to establish [Kofi] and I were friends? Cesaro was there for that when we were just trying to get off the ground,” revealed Big E.

Just like Big E, Cesaro is seen as someone who is extremely underrated and deserves a good world title run in WWE. Big E recently had his big moment, and fans can now hope to see Cesaro become a WWE World Champion someday.
