Big E Provides Update On Neck Injury After One-Year Scan

On the March 11, 2022 episode of WWE SmackDown, Big E suffered a neck injury when he landed on his head following a belly-to-belly suplex from Ridge Holland. Big E fractured his C1 vertebrae and C6 vertebrae, but didn't suffer any ligament or spinal cord damage.

Big E previously stated that he was set to get his one-year scan after WrestleMania.

Speaking to Battle & Eli on Battleground, Big E provided an update on his condition.

"It's just a complicated fracture. I broke my C1 and C2 in two places, a Jefferson fracture is what it's called. It just takes a little more time to heal. We just did the one year scans after WrestleMania, it was a little later because of WrestleMania. We need to sit down with the doctors at some point and figure out what the next step is. From my perspective, I feel great, I have no function issues, no pain issues, I've been in the gym since two weeks after I broke my neck. I'm feeling great. Obviously, your neck has to be in a certain condition to deal with the rigors of being in the ring on a nightly basis," he said.

Big E has remained active outside of the ring, helping with WWE NIL tryouts and landing a new gig as the official emcee of the USFL's Michigan Panthers.

It is unknown when he will return to the ring. Fightful will continue to update fans on his condition when more is known.
