WWE is hinting that the Intercontinental Championship will be given a boost once John Cena or Randy Orton unify the two main championship belts at TLC. That means that Big E Langston could be in line for a big push very soon.
The current plans for Big E Langston has him working a big match against Mark Henry at the Royal Rumble. The two will be selling a mentor and pupil story line on episodes of Monday Night Raw first.
Prior to the Survivor Series, there were talks of turning Big E Langston back into a heel and having him challenge John Cena for the World Heavyweight Championship.
At a live event in Belgium, Dean Ambrose defended the US title against Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston in a triple threat match.
Dolph Ziggler needed help from a WWE diva to gain revenge on former on screen girlfriend AJ Lee and best friend Big E Langston, so he enlisted the help of Kaitlyn. Ziggler and Kaitlyn were victorious at the Summerslam pay per view.
