Big E has been out of action for a year after suffering a broken neck during a match against the Brawling Brutes.
On the March 11th, 2022 episode of SmackDown the star took a Belly-to-Belly Overhead Superlex from Ridge Holland outside the ring. However, instead of landing flat on his back as planned, Big E landed high up on his neck.
Thankfully, the former World Champion didn’t require surgery or damage his spinal cord. As his recovery progressed, the star revealed that he would be undergoing more tests in March 2023 to determine whether he will wrestle again.
With those scans just around the corner, the New Day star spoke to TMZ Sports and said that he won’t be rushing to any judgments when he gets the results.
“Nah, 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,” Big E stated. “Right now, before I know anything, I’m not going to make any rush to judgments or anything. See how everything looks.”
When asked whether he had any anxiety about the results of the scans, he said he was at peace with whatever the results will be.
“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.”
