Big E had to overcome numerous hurdles 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 it didn’t last long. He was seen wearing a neck brace again recently.
Back in March, WWE fans were shocked when Big E was dumped on his head by Ridge Holland via a 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 a very unfortunate update regarding his recovery. Titus O’Neal took to Twitter and uploaded photos of himself at a Tampa Bay Lightning game with Big E. Big E was still wearing a neck brace in the photos.
@TBLightning WHAT A NIGHT and WHAT A WIN!!

Big E was previously spotted without a neck brace and that got fans’ hopes up. It will take some time before he actually properly heals up and recovers. It remains to be seen when Big E will be able to make his return to WWE television.
