Big E is your new WWE Champion.

During Monday night’s live WWE Raw from TD Garden in Boston, MA Bobby Lashley retained the WWE Championship over Randy Orton. After Lashley’s successful title defense, Big E came out and cashed in his Money In the Bank title opportunity, and defeated Lashley in a match that lasted several minutes.

Bobby Lashley held the title for 195 days.  He won it from The Miz back on the March 1, 2021 episode of Raw. 

Below is an excerpt from Mike Tedesco’s Raw recap on how the title change came about.
