An explosion is energy, right?
How does a spring spring? Stored energy due to it's compression. So if the starting point of a "big bang" is super compressed matter couldn't the bang to the release of the compressive force?

The theory also suggests that that super dense matter was incredibly hot, which could also contribute energy.
