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 Wife: Is Big E married?
Big E is not yet married and has never been married in his entire life. We have no records that show he ever got married. Big E is currently single and not in any relationship at the moment.
After injuries ended Ewen’s dreams of being a professional footballer, Ewen was introduced to professional wrestling by someone who knew Jim Ross.
At the suggestion of said person, Ewen was given a tryout in Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), a developmental territory of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).
He became convinced that he could be good at it and do wrestling for a living, and WWE signed a developmental contract with him in 2009.
According to Ewen, although he had been a wrestling fan as a child, he had “never thought this [was] something you could do for a living, and I would never have. … Thankfully I was in the right place and the right time, and it’s something that I have developed a passion for.”
