Big E had to overcome many obstacles over the years throughout his time in WWE. He reached the top of the mountain by becoming the WWE Champion last year as well but his reign was not long one. Sadly, the former WWE Champion suffered a broken neck and things aren’t healing ideally. Now he was spotted wearing a neck brace in public.

Back in April, WWE fans were shocked when Big E was dumped on his head by Ridge Holland via belly to belly suplex on the outside of the ring. Big E was said to have suffered a broken neck due to the bump, and that sadly ended up being the case.

Big E himself then revealed that he will not be requiring any surgery. Big E also shared very unfortunate update when it came to his recovery. Big E recently took to his Instagram and uploaded a photo of himself and Marlon Wayans at the Seminole Hard Rock Event Center in Tampa. Big E was sporting a neck brace in the photos.

“Massive thanks to @hardrocktampa for a fun night of hob nobbing. (That sounds filthier than intended…)”


Big E is also facing a longer recovery time than expected. Regardless, Big E remains as positive as ever and we here at Ringside News wish for his speedy recovery.
