Big E has a had successful year compared to his rookie candidates, majority of his success happening in the latter part of 2013. Langston has competed in 3 of the major Pay-Per-Views. Langston made his in-ring debut at Wrestlemania 29 and was built as a dominant force. His partnership with Ziggler ultimately disintegrated culminating into a mixed tag match at Summerslam and a week after winning his first championship, Big E successfully defended his newly won Intercontinental Championship at Survivor Series. As recent as last week’s Smackdown and RAW, Langston has been proving he can hang with the Main Eventers and coming to their aid (Cena and Punk). The hope is that Langston can begin to showcase his dominance and pick up some key victories versus the top stars. Langston has demonstrated a lot of charisma on social media (he deserves to be awarded for that too!) that has yet to make it’s way on to television, but it will be a matter of time until we see the wit and charm of Big E Langston. Big E is here to stay, he will only build upon his success in 2013 and I anticipate equal if not greater success in 2014.
