Bad news for Big E.
Big E came out of nowhere this afternoon with a haiku announcing that he would be taking time off due to a meniscus injury. Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that the New Day member will be getting his knee scoped and could be out for around six weeks.

Crossbody cooked the cartilage
Bye for a bit
Based on Big E's tweet, the incident occurred during the six-man tag team match on SmackDown when Cesaro came off the top rope with a crossbody. Big E was supposed to catch him, but his knee gave out, causing him to collapse. The two tried to save the spot with a roll through. Big E continued to the match, which was won by New Day when Kofi Kingston hit Sheamus with the Trouble In Paradise.
The injury did not occur when Big E did the splits in the opening segment of the show.
WWE issued the following comment on Big E's injury:
Big E of The New Day has suffered a torn meniscus, according to a tweet from the Superstar posted Thursday afternoon.
He is not currently medically cleared for action.
