• Big E Gives An Update On His Neck Injury
2022 has been rough for Big E.
He lost the WWE Championship on the first day of the year. He then suffered a broken neck on an episode of SmackDown, which resulted in him missing WrestleMania 38.
Earlier today, he gave the following update on his neck:
“Update! My C1 isn’t ossifying (forming bone) quite yet. The current plan is to get more scans at the one year mark & see how it’s progressing. The great news is I feel tremendous & surgery is off the table.”
Back in March, former WWE Physician Dr. David Cho addressed Big E’s injury and noted that this could be career-threatening.
Below is what he had to say:
“The C1 fracture is most dangerous as the top cervical vertebrae is a ring and is commonly associated with immediate death or complete paralysis. Thankfully the fracture was not displaced and he will not need surgery.
However, this type of fracture often heals incompletely and it may mean the end of his wrestling career.
The C6 fracture is likely a compression injury to the vertebral body. This likely requires immobilization but not surgery.
One would anticipate a minimum of three-month recovery with return to full function and activities for this lower cervical injury.
Previously, I had worked regularly with WWE as a consulting physician for events and performing surgery. I can assure you the stunts that are executed are real and come with risk, even though some consider the sport to be ‘fake’.”
