Good and bad. Injuries are the kind of thing that can happen to any wrestler at any given time and that is never good to see. Someone can get hurt and be out on the shelf for a long time as a result, especially if the injury is on the more serious end. That was the case earlier this year and now the new update and prognosis is somewhere between positive and negative.
Big E. suffered a broke neck during a botched overhead belly to belly suplex on the March 11 SmackDown. Since then, Big E. has undergone recovery efforts but it is not clear if he will ever be able to wrestle again. During a recent interview on Out Of Character With Ryan Satin, Big E. said that while his C1 is healing, it is not completely forming at the bone. As a result, he would be cleared for a regular day to day life and no longer has to wear a neck brace, but he is not cleared to wrestle. His neck will be checked again after a year, though he currently has no nerve damage and was in the gym less than two weeks after his injury.
Opinion: That is good to hear, as Big E.’s health is a lot more important than his in-ring career. A broken neck is about as serious of an injury as you are going to have and thankfully things seem to be improving. While there is a chance that he will never wrestle again, the fact that he can walk around day to day and live his life is what matters more than anything.
What do you think of Big E.’s career? What should he do if he can wrestle again? Let us know in the comments below.
