Big E

Big E has confirmed that he has a broken neck after a scary landing during a match on SmackDown.

The Friday, March 11th edition of SmackDown was marred by a serious injury to Big E. The former World Champion had been teaming with Kofi Kingston taking on Sheamus and Ridge Holland.

After Big E fell to the outside, he was given an overhead Belly to Belly Suplex by Ridge Holland. However, instead of Big E flipping all of the way over and landing on his back, he landed on his head and neck.

The former World Champion wasn’t involved in the match again, as commentary mentioned that he was being tended to by medics. During the following commercial break, the star was taken out of the arena on a stretcher.

The New Day star did gave a thumbs up to the crowd as he was being carried backstage.

Posting on social media, Big E has now confirmed that doctor’s have told him he has broken his neck.

“I can’t thank all of you beautiful people enough, for all of your concern and your messages. It’s very heart-warming. I can move all of my digits, [wiggles fingers to camera] you see that? That’s nice, that’s always a good thing. Strength feels fine. But unfortunately, right now they tell me that my neck is broken, so there is that.

But once again, thank you everybody, I’m gonna be alright, I’ll be good. Don’t worry, go to sleep. Don’t worry about old me, but for real, thank you. I appreciate all of you.”
