Big E has provided an update on his condition following the diagnosis of a broken neck by doctors.
The former WWE Champion took a scary landing onto his head on the March 11th episode of SmackDown. In a post on social media, Big E stated that his neck has been broken as a result of the bump.
In a further update on social media, Big E has said that there is no damage to the spine and surgery will not be required:
“So I got some really good news all things considered. The C1 and C6 are indeed fractured, non-displacement though, which is a good thing. I don’t have any damage to my spinal cord. No ligament damage and no surgery, which I’m very thankful for. Pro-tip, if you’re going to break your neck, do it in Birmingham. They’ve been great. Everyone here has been great. For real, it’s meant a ton to me that so many of you have been so kind and reached out or stopped in to see me. I feel like I sound like a broken record, but I’m very grateful and I’m gonna be alright. It’s a blessing,”
Features of Wrestling would like to wish Big E a full and speedy recovery at this time.
