As per the reports of PW Insider, Big E’s WWE Title win caused a “huge uptick” in backstage morale. Several names backstage were very glad for Big E for winning the top title that it put an overall better mood over the entire atmosphere.
“There was a huge uptick in morale among the wrestlers at Raw last night out of genuine excitement for Big E winning the WWE Championship. He’s very much beloved by the locker room so it was seen as a huge deal. We’ve heard from Smackdown talents who said they wished they could have been at last night’s Raw taping in Boston, just to have been there.”
