A new WWE developmental wrestler currently assigned to NXT down in Florida made his debut on WWE television yesterday, flattening John Cena at the end of RAW after walking out with AJ Lee.
The 26 year old Big E Langston followed fellow NXT wrestlers Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns to the main roster and judging from the fact that he laid out Cena, it’s a fairly good assumption that the company is high on him.
Langston – real name Ettore Ewen – is a Tampa native and has been signed to a WWE deal since 2009. He made his NXT debut in August and was then involved in an angle with Vickie Guerrero who offered her services – managerial, that is – to him but he turned her down. Guerrero then put a $5,000 bounty to any member of the NXT roster who can take Langston out. He has taped a match for the NXT title against champion Seth Rollins but that match has yet to air.
He is a powerlifter and currently holds the USAPL Florida State Raw record in deadlift with an impressive 799lbs.
