Several stars from all sides of the wrestling divide have reacted to the news that former WWE Champion Big E suffered a broken neck 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 the way over and landing on his back, he landed on his head and neck.
Posting on social media, Big E has now confirmed that doctors 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.”
Now many stars of the entire wrestling world have reacted to the news of Big E’s serious injury. Many of the tweets from stars including Mick Foley, Sasha Banks, Bobby Lashley and many more can be found below.

I’ve said it many times over the years, suplexing is ALL about proper technique & training, not strength. 🙏 Big E.

Big E is truly one of the most incredible humans I’ve ever known. Broken neck and he’s more concerned with how we all feel. We don’t deserve that man.
