• Big E Might Be Gone From WWE For A Long Time
During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, former SmackDown Tag Team Champion Big E talked about how he might be gone from WWE for a long time due to his current injury.
Below is what Big E said:
“I had a meniscus repair and I think I’ll be back by 2021. That’s my goal. If I give myself a year and a half, I think that sounds about right. You know, you don’t want to rush these things. Maybe even 2022, who knows?
Maybe I’ll take some time off. Maybe get some hydraulic knees, because this is my fourth knee surgery. So maybe look into that. Some Go-Go-Gadget legs. I might go bionic, actually. So we might go back to the drawing boards on that. Get some new hardware. So yeah, that’s the plan.”
