Big E had to cross many hurdles over the years, during his time in WWE. After a solid run on NXT, he was called up to the main roster but was eventually lost in the shuffle. He would then find success on the main roster as a multi-time tag team champion and then the WWE Champion.

Fans of Big E were mortified after this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown. This is because Big E was involved in scary bump, where he was dumped on his neck by Ridge Holland.

Big E had to be stretchered out as fans feared the worst. Big E then revealed that he had suffered a broken neck due to the bump. The former WWE Champion took to Twitter and uploaded a video, where he gave an update on his condition. Big E revealed that he will not require surgery and is thankful for that fact.

The C1 and C6 are indeed fractured, not displacement though which is a very good thing. I don’t have any damage to my spinal cord or ligament damage and no surgery, which I’m thankful for. A pro tip – if you’re gonna break your neck, do it in Birmingham – everyone’s been great.”


It is to be noted that Birmingham is where WWE’s surgeon is, which is likely what Big E was referring to. We will have to wait and see when Big E will be able to return to the squared circle.
