A broken C1 and C6 vertebrae sustained on March 11’s SmackDown hasn’t always been good news for Big E, who is always positive.
His most recent significant update sounded awful. “Optimal” healing had not occurred, and E indicated in early May that he may yet need neck surgery. On Instagram, he threw his neck brace in the trash and sent this very Large Epsilon video in response to some well-wishes from super-fan Jessi Davin.
It’s great that surgery is off the table. There’s a distinct possibility that his comeback to the ring will be far off in the future. But the most essential thing is for E to be happy.
“Surgery is off the table,” says Big E as he continues his long journey to healing after suffering a broken neck.

A few weeks after suffering numerous vertebral fractures while partnering with Kofi Kingston to battle Ridge Holland and Sheamus on SmackDown Live’s March 11 edition, the former WWE Champion says he feels “tremendous” right now. Next, he’ll get another round of scans in March 2023, one year after the first one.
As Big E continues to heal from this career-ending injury, we wish him the best of luck!
During the aforementioned SmackDown match, Holland attempted to suplex the 36-year-old and he fell on his head, breaking both his C1 and C6 vertebrae. If you injure E’s neck or back, you run the risk of paralysis (or worse), but he recovered quickly from the injury and was back on his feet in days. Since then, he has given up his neck brace.
Update! My C1 isn’t ossifying (forming bone) quite yet. The current plan is to get more scans at the one year mark & see how it’s progressing. The great news is I feel tremendous & surgery is off the table.

That The New Day man will ever wrestle again is unknown, but it is encouraging to know that he is doing better than before.
