Former Hawkeye Big E humbled by visit to Tragos/Thesz Hall of Fame

Big E, a former University of Iowa defensive lineman, participated in the weekend's autograph signing and attended the induction banquet in Waterloo, Iowa, a week ago.

"It's been really cool to be back and especially -- I feel a bit out of place in that there's so many legends who've done so much more than I have, and I'm here for some reason, so it's very humbling," the New Day member told SLAM! Wrestling prior to the banquet on July 23rd.

The former powerlifter said he feels like he "really became an adult" while in Iowa.

"Mike Doughty's one of the organizers. Honestly, he's the reason I got signed," Big E said. "I would never even be here, so I feel like he changed my life. So anything I can do to help him at all or to give back even in the slightest is a cool thing."...More?
