Kaitlyn made her WWE departure back in 2014 and returned to the world of professional wrestling in 2017. She has had her fair share of ups and downs over the years. She was also rumored to be dating Big E at one point in time, but those turned out to be merely rumors only.
Kaitlyn recently spoke on The Sessions with Renée Paquette, where she revealed she was very happy for Big E when he won the WWE Championship by causing in his Money In The Bank contract on Bobby Lashley last year in September on an episode of Monday Night RAW.
“E and I have been so close for years and years, even since I haven’t been wrestling or on the road but we have always touched base. [We talk about] ‘here’s where I’m at’ or something funny or an old match memory or something. It’s funny, like you could go through our text thread if we had a consistent one,” Bonin explained, “you could see the shifts in both of us in our like perceptions and our ability to be open and to just like expand ourselves.
“We actually connect on a deeper level now because he so much has —he’s brilliant. He’s brilliant and he’s been through a lot and he’s experienced a lot. So all of us have but in particular, we have so much love for him and I personally think that when he got the title, something just either dissolved within him or aligned or clicked. It was almost like he could see himself more clear because I don’t know one person that was not so f-cking elated that he won the title. Because there’s not someone more deserving and more unbelievably charismatic and loving and such a beautiful person. I 100 percent feel like it helped him open his eyes just a little bit to like, who he is. Because none of us ‘see’ ourselves, ya know? Like, I think he’s starting to think that he’s really opening up to that and it’s so, so beautiful.”
Bonin agreed with Paquette’s description of Big E and said he is a magical creature and “there’s not a better way to describe him.”

Current AEW Star and former WWE Superstar Chris Jericho is no doubt one of the most accomplished and popular pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. He has competed in several promotions such as WCW, WWE, ECW, New Japan Pro Wrestling and AEW among others. Chris Jericho also previously dropped a major return bombshell.
