Former WWE Champion Big E will be in Phoenix this weekend to introduce a NASCAR event.
The New Day member has been sidelined after suffering fractures in his C1 and C6 vertebrae on the March 11, 2022, episode of SmackDown. The 36-year-old is an eight-time tag team champion and an Intercontinental Champion. He won the WWE Title in September 2021 but dropped it to Brock Lesnar at the Day 1 Premium Live Event.
WWE and NASCAR recently announced that Big E would introduce the race this Sunday. The official Phoenix Raceway Twitter account posted a video featuring the former champion.
“Ohhh NASCAR nation!,” said Big E. “It is I, Big E, and I am so proud to announce as your NASCAR Cup Series MC on Sunday, November 6th at 1:30 pm, at Phoenix Raceway for NASCAR Championship Weekend. I’ll be announcing your four championship drivers. Let’s go, baby! So don’t you dare be sour, watch a champion be crowned and feel the power.”

“We’re looking forward to welcoming Sheamus and his legion of fans to Nashville Superspeedway for our race weekend. Sheamus’ athletic feats have earned him a well-earned worldwide following. We can’t wait for him to experience #NASHCAR in all its glory and feel the thrill of waving the green flag from the flag stand later this month!” [H/T: The Tennessean]
