Big E has been out of action since March 2022, due to a neck injury he suffered after taking a Belly-To-Belly Overhead Suplex from Ridge Holland.
The former WWE Champion fractured his C1 vertebrae and C6 vertebrae and had to undergo surgery.
While speaking at a SummerSlam Media Conference, Big E said that he feels 100%, but doesn’t know when he’ll be able to wrestle again because doctors have advised him to not get back in the ring again.
Below is what The New Day member said:
“We did the year check-up and all that stuff looked great, but on the other side, I also talked to spine specialists, people who have worked on other people in the company and done their fusions and they said, ‘Hey, I would not wrestle again if I were you.’
For me, at 37, these are things that I think about. I think about quality of life. When I started this job at 23 and probably had a bit of a death wish and was okay at dying in the ring, I would now like to not die in the ring.
I would like to do other things with my life. I don’t really have a timeline right now. I’m just really grateful to not have any nerve pain. My strength is great. Legit no issues whatsoever.
It’s something I want to be smart about and make the best decision for my life. I’d like to have a lot of healthy life ahead of me. I want to be smart about things.
Unfortunately, right now, I have no answer. I feel great, but I have nothing.”
