Ettore Ewen is an American professional wrestler and former powerlifter. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the SmackDown brand under the ring name Big E, but is currently inactive due to an injury.
Ewen was a collegiate football player at the University of Iowa and later became a powerlifter and a USA Powerlifting champion. He also won a state championship in high-school wrestling.
Upon signing with WWE in 2009, Ewen was assigned to its developmental brand Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) under the ring name Big E Langston. After FCW was rebranded to NXT, he became the second NXT Champion.
He was promoted to WWE’s main roster in December 2012, and his ring name was shortened to Big E in February 2014. In 2020, Ewen resumed his singles career and was eventually separated from his New Day teammates in the 2020 WWE Draft.
He won the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match in 2021, before successfully cashing it in later that year to win the WWE Championship, becoming the 33rd Triple Crown Champion in the company’s history.
Big E Net Worth
The WWE Champion’s net worth is around $2 million. According to his WWE contract, E’s basic salary is $500,000. However, he is also subjected to getting more pay on his merchandise sale for the company.
The former powerlifter may have shattered records and won numerous trophies prior to his WWE career, but his wrestling record isn’t less impressive.
Big E was the second NXT Champion in history, beating Seth Rollins for the title. He is a two-time Intercontinental Champion. With the New Day, he’s held eight tag team championships; two Raw Tag Titles and six SmackDown tag titles.
He also won the Money In the Bank contract and successfully cashed in on Bobby Lashley.
Big E is also the reigning WWE champion, and he has successfully defended his title against the likes of Bobby Lashley and Kevin Owens.
He was part of the first-ever tag-team Hell in a Cell match and the first tag-team Elimination Chamber match.
