A locker room leader is generally a modest person.
Big E. appears to fit this trait.
During his appearance on the Getting Over podcast, the 2021 Mr. Money In The Bank spoke about his role as a locker room leader in WWE.
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this particular topic.
"Our industry is not an easy business to ascend to the top. There are a lot of very talented guys who spend a lot of time in catering or don’t get those opportunities that others do. For me, it’s hard to say that I’m a leader or a mentor. I don’t want to put myself in that position, but I do now understand, whether I want to be or not, I have been here for quite some time. I do hope I have the respect of my peers. I will go up to guys sometimes…..I have learned the value of telling people, ‘Hey, you’re really good at what you do and I’m a fan. Keep doing you.’ Too often in my own head, I thought, ‘No one really cares, I’m not established enough, let me keep that to myself.’ Maybe sometimes it falls on deaf ears, but I have no problem, men or women [giving advice]. I look at Liv [Morgan] too. People have been clamoring for her to do more and to ascend. The time she puts in on her off days to continue to get better. For me, I want to see everyone get the opportunities I got to live out their dreams and do something really cool. That feeling is incredible and I hope we get more of that talent who is underutilized to bust through that glass ceiling."
