• SmackDown Star Is Getting Death Threats For Last Year’s Accident
It’s been one full year since former WWE Champion Big E got his neck broken on an episode of SmackDown, after a Belly-To-Belly Overhead Suplex by Ridge Holland.
Big E got checked by the Doctors this month and will soon make a decision about his future in professional wrestling.
He was interviewed by TMZ Sports regarding this situation. Below are the highlights:
On what the future holds for him:
“I just want to make the best decision. I just got to see what the scans say and then talk to doctors and go from there.
Right now, before I know anything, I’m not going to make any rush to judgments or anything. See how everything looks.”
On if he’s having anxiety regarding his wrestling career possibly being over:
“Nah, no anxiety at all. Everything isn’t permanent. If it comes to an end, cool. If it doesn’t, cool. What will be, will be. I’m good with whatever.”
On advice for people in similar situation:
“Yeah, man, for me, life will always give you twists and turns that you don’t anticipate. I think you do the best you can with what you got.
Life is a gift. If you’re here, if you’re walking, if you have your health, if you got your family and friends, you’re blessed. Focus on what you do have and not on what you don’t have.”
After this interview came out, some fans decided to give Ridge a hard time.
Below is what Ridge tweeted about this situation:
“Death threats. Threats to my family. Lobbying for me to lose my job. Being labeled as racist. Great stuff 👍🏻 keep ‘em coming.”
