Big E made his in-ring return after being on the sidelines for a few months.
He teamed up with fellow New Day members Xavier Woods and WWE Champion Kofi Kingston in a six-man tag team match against Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Dolph Ziggler on Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live in Sacramento, CA at the Golden 1 Center.
Big E had been out of action with a torn meniscus since April. He suffered the injury on the April 9th episode of SmackDown while working a six-man tag team match alongside Woods and Kingston against Cesaro, Sheamus, and Drew McIntyre.
Now, with Big E back on television, it appears that he’ll support Kingston during his time as the top champion on SmackDown Live alongside Woods.
WWE presents the Stomping Grounds pay-per-view event on Sunday, June 23 at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, WA that will air on the WWE Network.
At this show, Kingston will defend his WWE Championship against Dolph Ziggler inside of a Steel Cage.
