Big E has provided an update on his neck injury.
As noted, In March 2022, New Day feuded with the team of Sheamus and Ridge Holland. A match between the teams on the March 11 episode of SmackDown saw Holland delivering an overhead belly-to-belly suplex to Big E at ringside, resulting in Big E landing on the top of his head; Big E was later placed on a stretcher and taken to a hospital.
On social media, Big E stated that he had suffered a broken neck, with fractures to his C1 vertebrae and C6 vertebrae, but no ligament or spinal cord injury. Big E also said that he would not require surgery for his injury, and thanked people for their concern.
In the latest update, Big E stated that his C1 "apparently isn’t healing optimally" and that he'll spend another 4-6 weeks in a brace in hopes that he can avoid a fusion.
"For those desirous of an update, my C1 apparently isn’t healing optimally. I’ll spend another 4-6 weeks in a brace in hopes that I can avoid a fusion. But don’t you fret! I’ve got a tremendous support system & what shall be shall be," he said.
